Looking for something more blue? Check out this crowd favorite: Tradewind. Tradewind can still look neutral because of the grays in it, but just like Silver Strand, it leans more blue than green.

Like Sea Salt, Pale Smoke (by Ben Moore) is a bit of a chameleon color.  In different light, it can go from looking quite green, to quite blue, to more of a neutral gray.

Tip: As a self-proclaimed “frugalista”, I recommend buying a few paint samples of your top choices and using them to paint your swatches. It’s so much cheaper than buying gallons of paint!
