This week’s paint color is a blue-green paint color, and it is Sea Glass by Benjamin Moore.
Polls show that blue and green are Americans’ favorite colors, and this color is the happy medium. Sea Glass combines the stable tranquility of blue with the optimism and nature that are inherent in green.
It is a tricky color because it changes throughout the day with lighting. It is also a color that is subjective to the viewer. One half sees blue-green and the other insists it’s green-blue. And the great thing is that both sides are right because color is always subjective – what you see is what you get!
I painted our bedroom in Sea Glass, and it made a bold statement from the previously off-white color it was. I used Benjamin Moore’s satin finish for the walls and semi-gloss for the trim and doors.
I have really loved the new trend of painting the trim and doors the same color as the walls. Many people also paint their ceilings the same color, but I am a little more hesitant to try that because of how hard ceilings are to paint. They are BY FAR my least favorite thing to paint.
I love mixing in pink hues and navy with the Sea Glass color.
This relaxing color is perfect for bedrooms and bathrooms.
Do you have a perfect paint color you would love for me to add to this series?
