Breezeway – Behr

This soft shade of sea glass green was chosen by Behr to deliver both serenity and joy for homeowners. Rather than the moodier shade of green chosen by Sherwin-Williams, this lighter hue boasts a translucency that offers a dreamy, brightening effect. The optimum way to add a fresh, cool look to the kitchen, this mellow shade offers the ultimate elevation the space needs.

Aleutian – HGTV Home by Sherwin Williams

Meant to inspire peacefulness and serenity, this color offers a “perfectly balanced washed indigo” that creates a relaxing refuge. Filled with both warm and cool tones, the shade induces sentiments of comfort and stability.

This color is so complimentary that Harcrest finds homeowners selecting a variety of shades from lighter tones meant to brighten spaces with dark furniture to darker shades used to produce a sense of soothing elegance. The color is also used for numerous purposes whether as the color of room backdrops, wall accents, kitchen islands or statement furniture pieces.

October Mist 1495 – Benjamin Moore

Similar to evergreen fog, this selection by Benjamin Moore offers a softer green hue that produces similar calming effects. Reminiscent of earth shades, this color delivers a more muted, peaceful version of nature’s vibrant green hues as the leaves begin to change to make way for autumn.

This choice of green is commonly used by Harcrest homeowners in spaces such as bedrooms and family views with lovely lake views to offer a sense of tranquility in both private and common spaces.
