One of the most personal and impactful choices you can make in your home is determining the overall color palette. From the walls to ceiling to trim and accents, it sets the tone for your home and speaks immeasurably about who you are. What do you want your walls to say about you?
Color truly has a voice and a purpose!
One of our favorite watery blues, Salty Brine, is one of those colors that speaks to the power of calmness, reflects the beauty of nature and is versatile enough to do just about anything! Its rich hue floats effortlessly between green and blue, giving it a unique richness and depth that can transform a room and its energy.
As we search for global solutions that protect the environment, sustainability becomes more of a daily intention. Salty Brine’s complex undertones emit a harmonic frequency to aid in our journey for deeper meaning and purpose beyond material possessions.
According to color, design and lifestyle specialist, Philippa Radon, Salty Brine (C2-710) is the perfect color to enrich your home. The color blue has a calming effect on our psyche while green represents harmony and nature; it’s a perfect combination.
Salty Brine is a true chameleon color, not just because of the high quality, lightfast pigments used, but also its ability to mold itself into so many environments. It is becoming one of my go-to ‘trigger’ colors, as it prompts the right amount of interest and can comfortably stand alone as a dominant solo player or slide into a supporting role with subtle dignity.
You don’t have to use a single color on an entire wall from floor to ceiling.Try some color blocking options using Salty Brine as a main or accent color and a more whimsical placement.
Blocking does not have to be majorly geometric; it can be much more subtle while maintaining its impact.
Try Salty Brine as a full accent wall that wraps the corners by a foot or so (you don’t have to end the color in the natural corner cut off point)
Another idea is use Salty Brine as part of a darker, moodier color group, mixed with deeper greens and varying textural finishes. Pairing with Halifax (C2-711)and Cypress (C2-710) delivers impact while maintaining a warm harmony. This is a style, however, where you have to go all in to achieve the full effect.
Then, of course, you can paint a single wall. In this case, it’s important to note the various viewpoints of the room and to find the finishings and accents to bring the color to life.
Viewpoints are the places you observe from within the main room of interest. They are the visible spaces beyond the boundaries of the main focus. The room you are choosing colors for, no matter its shape and size, will always have different viewpoints to consider.
A soft white and touches of black create a clean, contemporary look. The space itself would determine exactly what goes where, but an example could be: Salty Brine on the wall of a bathroom with a black and white hex penny tile floor, and black matte bath fixtures with the Architectural White (C2-516) on the ceiling. How chic would that be?!
Make a splash with a green-blue front door! A soft color like Salty Brine emits a friendly, welcoming (and calm) story.
There is a major color craze happening in the kitchen these days. People are looking to express themselves since this is the heart of the home. From matte black and bold blues to more calming colors, it’s the most popular room to update - and also the most expensive. Paint color is an easy and less expensive way to breathe new life into your kitchen. We're seeing a lot of soft blues and greens in the kitchen and Salty Brine is the perfect mix of the two. Pair with natural elements like soapstone countertops and metal accents for a natural, polished look.
