I saw Sherwin Williams’ Aleutian SW 6241 immediately when I visited their homepage, and I just knew it had to be my next Color Spotlight.
This “cool denim blue settles on your space like calm personified” according to Sherwin Williams’ site.
Aleutian is sure to bring a “chill vibe” to the bedroom, bathroom, or anywhere you’re looking to bring in the calm.
Coordinating colors include:
- Tumblin’ Tumbleweed
- San Antonio Sage
It has a LRV of 38.6 meaning it reflects very little light back into a space (on a scale of 0-100, 0 reflecting absolutely no light).
How Can I Get a Sample?
The best way to try out Sherwin Williams paint colors is to order a 12”x12” peel-and-stick sample from Samplize.
A few things I love about these true color samples:
- You can easily move them around from room to room.
- They cost MUCH less than traditional sample pots, brushes/rollers, and foam boards.
- They are more environmentally friendly.
Plus, they’re typically delivered in just 1-3 business days, so you don’t have to add one more errand to your list (and then go back again and again when you don’t like how they look in your space).
What is a Color Spotlight?
Every day this month, I’m highlighting a different paint color for my readers — mainly colors I haven’t really talked about before on the blog — as a fun little project.
They’re super quick blurbs that you can read in less than five minutes (NOT long, drawn out color reviews).
This will not only expose you to a variety of fun hues you might not have considered, but it’ll also give me fresh ideas for future blog posts.
