      Hi Mary! Any kind of light – daylight, artificial light, even candlelight – can dramatically change the way a certain color appears. We recommend reaching out to your local store for assistance: Store Locator

    • The color is beautiful in my spare bedroom. Definitely brighter than the above picture depicts……but not too bright! Very soft and soothing.

    • That’s funny. I used Sea Salt in several rooms and it pretty much looks white in each.

    for providing this informɑtion.

  5. Downstairs bathroom is painted Argos Gray, should I paint the adjoining bedroom this same color?

    • Sherwin-Williams logo

      Hi Mary, what other colors are in the bedroom? For instance furniture, window treatments, flooring etc. Thank you!

  6. Which of these colors will go great with champagne bedroom furnitures? If none of these work, what would you recommend? Thanks

    • Sherwin-Williams logo

      Hi Jessica, look at either White Truffle SW 6029 or Sea Salt SW 6204 Those are both subtle but sophisticated colors that will complement your champagne furniture nicely. Keep in mind that your bedding is a big part of your palette as well. So, make sure you incorporate whatever wall color you choose in a pillow sham or throw pillow or blanket if you can.

  7. I have been trying to find the perfect color for a north facing bedroom. Would you be able to recommend some relaxing greyish, subtle purple tones for such a room?

    • Sherwin-Williams logo

      HI Danielle, take a look at these options, they are all soft grays with a very subtle purple undertone. Check out:
      Destiny SW 6274
      Minute Mauve SW 7078
      Unique Gray SW 6260

    • I have north facing bedroom as well. I tested out several colors, but noticed one in particular that almost had purplish undertone. It was agreeable gray by sw. I’d try that, sounds like what you’re looking for and you can always get it lightened if needed.

  8. In the past you have had coupons for paint on your website. Do you know longer offer this?

  9. We are using Amazing Gray on exterior for EIFS and siding to go with our stone. Which paint color of the blacks goes best with Amazing Gray for trim and garage doors?

    • Sherwin-Williams logo

      Hello Laura! Two darker hues that would complement Amazing Gray beautifully are Peppercorn SW 7674 and Caviar SW 6990.

  10. I am looking for a bedroom color that is calm and a mixture of blue, green and gray undertones. I need something that is not super dark and goes well with grey silk curtains and silver accents. Do you have any suggestions?

    • Sherwin-Williams logo

      Hi Leanie! We have a few great color options for your bedroom listed below.
      Sea Salt SW 6204
      Lattice SW 7654
      North Star SW 6246

  11. Hi- I just painted a north facing bedroom Shoji White with White Truffle on an accent wall. What shade of white would you would recommend for the trim?

    • Sherwin-Williams logo

      Hi April, Shoji and White Truffle are both soft, understated colors and would look best with a clean, crisp white on the trim. Look at using either Pure White SW 7005 or Extra White SW 7006 for your trim.

    • Repose Gray. Has violet undertones in my kitchen. the color is very light and subtle. Really pretty. You probably don’t need this info anymore but thought I’d share.

  12. I am looking for a good green to paint a large bedroom without much natural light.
    It is Samovar Silver right now with Rock Candy in the adjacent bathroom.
    Any suggestion on a good green that would have a similar dept of color and possible a good lighter complementing color for the bathroom.
    I love the combination I have now but ready for a change.
    I have steamed milk trim that will need to stay the same.
