Sea Salt is one of the most popular bedroom and bathroom colors of the past few years. It makes the room feel very tranquil and beach-like, and works wonderfully well alongside lots of bright, crisp whites.

Behr’s Reflecting Pool is a very soft blue-gray color. It works just as well with dark wood tones as it does with bright whites, and is a wonderful color to brighten up a dark space.

Boothbay Gray is a lovely blue-gray with (at times) a light green undertone. More often than not, it will lean into the blue side of things.
