Our homes lead busy lives, but there’s always room to reconnect with the spaces we seek refuge in. Whether it’s an at-home spa day or curling up with a good read, these curated palettes from our Living Well™ collection bring a fresh look that helps us recharge, reflect and renew.
Like salty sea breezes and crystal-clear waters, the Recharge palette submerges your senses in a calming collection of coastal colors. When you’re looking to create a space about total relaxation, cool blues and greens bring images of restful retreats and seaside destinations to mind. These hues are great for adding a calmness that leaves you refreshed and ready for the day ahead.
Whether it’s a gauzy gray or crisp white, an ethereal blend of neutrals is the key to a clean canvas. The uncluttered look of the Reflect palette gives you more space for inviting openness, contemplation and inner peace so you can express your truest self, one hue at a time. Quiet spaces like a reading nook with a furry friend are the perfect place to settle down with timeless touches that never go out of style.
Settle in with soothing grays that quiet the mind. The Renew palette features relaxing hues that serve as a reminder to revel in new beginnings like the dawn of a new day. These soft colors quickly blanket a space in warmth to create a nurturing and restorative home that gives back. Save these hues for rooms where you can sit back and appreciate the little things.

We are looking for a kit to redo our bathroom countertop to make it look like stone. Do you sell those or can I order one?
Hi Margie! Unfortunately we do not have any FDA approved paints for countertops.
Hi Margie, I just did the countertops at my moms in a white stone finish and the look great. She had a blue/green laminate countertops. I purchased the kit for $125 from Lowes online. Was very easy to do, I didn’t even remove the sink! ITS CALLED SPREADSTONE COUNTERTOP REFINISHING KIT. I wish I could post b4 & after pics but I’m unable to do it on this post. Then I painted her cabinets in a soft grey with black hardware. Paint was from Dixie Belle Paint. Looks like she got a brand new kitche!! Starting mine next! 😊
Look up Stonecoat countertops on the internet, their website might tell you where to get the supplies.
Doing my dining room need something NOT GRAY to compliment my golden oak
Hi Patricia, what other colors are in the space already? For instance flooring, furniture, trim etc. Also, are there any color families you are leaning towards? Let us know! Thank you.
Just did my office with Sea Salt and Oyster Bay. My office has golden oak trim (floor boards, windows, door trim and a golden oak window sill shelf). It is a more neutral greenish blue not too warm and not too cool as far as the color feels. Might be worth a try to pick up a sample 🙂
I have Sea Salt in my master and I LOVE it. It gives you color that isn’t overwhelming. Just like Lisa said… its not too warm or too cool. It blends with greenish blues and I have cream and brownish taupe bedding and it blends beautifully.
Hi Patricia, although the name is Colonnade Gray, it totally compliments golden oak and is nothing like a gray gray that you would think of as gray. I have used it in clients homes that have honey oak. Mary Beth at Alfred and Mary Interior Design
Do you think it’s good for a kitchen with Honey oak cabinets?
I would like these samples. Looking to redo primary bed & bath
Hi Maureen! Click here to order the color chips.
These are beautiful. Does SW carry paint that could be applied over a ‘pink’ flagstone porch.
Hi Susan! We would consider using our Porch and Floor Enamel.
HELLO, I’m redoing my hallway bathroom.wants something bright and greenish bathroom vanity white with beige countertop. I need a paint color that’s POPS..
Hi Judy, take a look at these fun options for your bathroom:
Broccoflower SW 9039
Pickle SW 6725
Cucuzza Verde SW 9038
Love your colors. Especially seeing the
way you use them. Opens my mind.
I have a small bathroom with oak trim. It is a basement bathroom so there is a ledge half way up and that has a oak trim on it also.
What colors would you recommend for the new vanity and for the walls?
Hi Sandy! What color are the floors in this space? Are you interested in any specific color families? Let us know when you get a moment. Thank you.
I need to repaint old aluminum siding which currently has powdery paint that rubs off on your fingers. What kind of preparation and primer do I need? Will any exterior latex work as a topcoat?
Hi Paul! It is crucial to remove all oil, grease, dirt, oxide (chalky substance), and other foreign material prior to painting. In most cases Aluminum does not need to be primed. We recommend using Duration Exterior Acrylic Latex. For more information about preparation click the following link of visit your local store.

I am redoing & painting my i tire home. I need some yellow colors light, light the color of butter or lighter. I am using green more on the olive side, but not dark. Also, I’m using a very light teal & some red colors not bright at all. Trim colors, & a good antique white color.

I have a small north facing bathroom with a window in it.My flooring have taupe and white in it will have a white claw tub in it along with chrome fixtures to give old style feel to it also will be painting the trim white .I was wondering what color I should go with.I was thinking about sea salt or rainwater. Thank you!
Hi Linda, could you be referring to Rainwashed SW 6211? We do not have a color called Rainwater. Sea Salt SW 6204 would be a better complement to the other colors in your bathroom, especially the flooring. Sea Salt is more understated than Rainwashed which would make it a great choice for the old style feeling you want to achieve.
I have a small bathroom with no window in it that I want to paint a nice clean white color that will make the room appear bigger. Any suggestions?
Hi Lisa! Check out some of Our Finest Whites here.
I’m looking for the lightest color blue for my bathroom
Hi Elana, do you mean from the first photo? That would be Rainwashed SW 6211. It’s a beautiful option for your bathroom!
I noticed the wood trim is painted the same color as the walls, is this the latest style and do you use the same flat paint?
Hi Linda! This is something we are seeing more of lately. For the trim usually you will use a higher sheen than the wall. This helps differentiate the two and makes the trim “pop”.
LOVE Sherwin Williams – always use their duration home and classic alkyd enamel for trim…. goes on like butter….
but….. there is a rustolium product for countertops available at Lowe’s and Home Depot
I love the recharge pallet. Just this morning I painted my spare bedroom SW Cucumber, very close to SW Rainwashed. It’s so incredibly sunny and warm. I’m decorating with an antique bed frame and white gauze curtains. Window overlooks my garden so I will enjoy accenting the room with colors of the blooms.
This sounds amazing, Bethany! Your spare bedroom will be the place to be this spring.
Beautiful! Soft, soothing, liveable paint colors.
Love our Sherwin Willam paint we hat so many compliments! Great value !
Our relaxing colors are Copan blue, Calico and touque white
Thank you, Karen! These colors are lovely peaceful hues.
What kind of paint would you suggest to paint out side of MDF door that goes into garage, the door had developed some moisture problems!
The painter has used a compound on problems and sanded smooth (looks great) but what paint do I need to use now, painter suggested oil base but I read that after painting MDF to use a polyurethane finish over paint but I don’t think I should put polyurethane over a oil base !
Please help, I am headed to Sherwin Williams dealer today to get what you say I need !!!!
This door can’t be replaced but need help to help it withstand moisture as best I can !!!!
Hi Laura, consider using Exterior Oil-Based Wood Primer and Emerald Urethane Trim Enamel. We had to remove your phone number because this is a public comment. Stop into your local store today. We are glad help!
I’m moving a hutch and buffet from the dining room to the kitchen. The color was fine for the dining room, but too dark and green for the kitchen. Do I take all the hardware off, the doors and drawers out? Try to get the glass out? What about the finish already on there? Do I strip it, of rough it up with fine grit sand paper? It’s Canadel furniture so it has never had polish on it as they recommend using only a damp cloth.
Hi Carolyn! We recommend removing the drawers and hardware as you mentioned. Then tape of the glass if possible. Then apply Extreme Bond Primer and Emerald Urethane Trim Enamel. Lightly sand before for maximum adhesion.
Another question, 1) how do you tell if paint on a door is oil or latex? 2) what is the rule for painting over oil with latex or latex over oil? Is rain washed a new color or can I find it in my color chip “ book”
Hi Carolyn, you can paint latex over oil. However, it is vital that the surface be properly prepared. First, wash the surface, sand and then clean the sanding dust off. You may then apply your latex paint over the oil base paint. That process works for both interior and exterior applications. Your other option is to wash the surface and then apply a coat of adhesion primer and then topcoat. We offer our Extreme Bond Primer
To determine if the paint is latex or oil, gently wash a section of your wall with a light detergent mixed in warm water, then dry the spot with a clean towel. Finally, rub a cotton ball soaked with rubbing alcohol over the area. If the paint comes off, you have latex-based paint. If it does not, you have oil-based.
Hi there! Loving the Rainwashed wall color, do you happen to know the ceiling paint color?
Hi Giselle, the ceiling color is Extra White SW 7006 in a flat sheen.
Just used SW 7671 On The Rock for my living room. Looking for a darker bolder color for an accent wall. Any suggestions?
Hi Karen, On the Rocks is a soft gray with a blue undertone and would look great with many color families – except navy blue. What other colors on in the living room? For instance flooring, furniture, accessories, etc. Also, are there any color families you would not like to see in your space.
Re: previous comment on SW 7671 On The Rocks. I actually just repainted/refreshed what was here when I purchased this condo. It reads a little more purple than blue to me. Western afternoon son The previous owner had used SW 7673 Pewter Cast as the accent color. Looking for something perhaps a bit lighter.
Thanks for the follow up, two colors that are lighter than Pewter Case and would complement On the Rocks beautifully are Dorian Gray SW 7017 and Gray Matters SW 7066.
What kind of paint is appropriate for painting kitchen cabinets that have a “finish” on them?
Hi Julie! We recommend Extreme Bond Primer and Emerald Urethane Trim Enamel.
A couple of years ago, I found a color sample in my local SW store that was a cross between pale grey and light smoky mauve or smoky lavender. I think I would like to use that color for my office but cannot remember the name. Can you suggest some possibilities?
Hi Jeanne, It is always best to look at color in your lighting to see the color in “real life”. Check out:
Grayish SW 6001
Destiny SW 6274
Sensitive Tint SW 6267
I am looking for a neutral light blue/gray that would coordinate with agreeable gray. It would have natural light in the morning as well as sunlight in the afternoon. Our house has relaxed coastal vibes. Any suggestions?
Hi Rachel, check out the blue-grays below. Agreeable Gray is a light color so your blue-gray needs to be just a little darker in order to complement your Agreeable Gray. Look at:
Krypton SW 6247
Lazy Gray SW 6254
Colonial Revival Gray SW 2832
I am redoing my kitchen. The adjoining room will be in sea salt. The kitchen has honey oakcabinets and country blue counter tops. I’m looking for a color for the walls in yellow beige light. The other room will have accessible beige.
Hello Patricia, consider sticking with Accessible Beige SW 7036 for your kitchen. This greige will work with the blue and honey currently in your kitchen and also complement the sea salt and accessible beige you have in the other rooms. A yellow or beige would not work well with your existing finishes – stick with Accessible Beige for a cohesive, intentional palette.
I have cherry trim in my great room. My wall color has been a dark brown for years. I’d like to go lighter but want to keep the cherry trim. What colors would you suggest?
Thank you for your help.
Hi Karen, take a look at Sea Salt SW 6204 or Moorstone SW 9630. Either of these subtle green-grays would complement your cherry trim beautifully.
