This versatile color brings a sense of coastal elegance to a room, especially when used with other beach-inspired shades like turquoise, shades of blue, and sandy neutrals. 

Palladian Blue has an LRV of 65, making it ideal for medium-sized bathrooms. 

Sherwin Williams Clary Sage 

  • LRV: 40

Sherwin Williams Clary Sage is an excellent pick-up if you want to add depth and interest to a bathroom space without making it appear too dark.

With an LRV of 82, it creates a bright and airy atmosphere in a space. 

It works nicely with neutral tones, natural accents, and soft lighting, but it wouldn’t say no to the occasional pop of bronze, brass, and silver.

With Misty Blush as the backdrop, these colors add a touch of glamor to the bathroom.

Sherwin Williams Evergreen Fog

  • LRV: 7 

Evergreen Fog is a forest green with charcoal undertones.

When complemented with appropriate lighting, accents, and contrasting elements, it imparts a luxurious and moody atmosphere similar to what you’d typically see in high-end spas. 

With an LRV of 7, Evergreen Fog is best used as an accent wall rather than a primary backdrop. 

Incorporate light wood accents, natural textures, and soft, neutral hues to balance the intense color. 

Sherwin Williams Repose Gray 

  • LRV: 60

If you’re looking for a perfect neutral, Repose Gray is a no-brainer choice.

It complements a variety of accent colors, giving you the freedom to customize your bathroom space according to your preferences. 

From my experience, Repose Gray works best with light colors like soft pinks, muted mustards, and crisp whites. 

Its neutral undertones of gray and beige harmonize effortlessly with these lighter shades, creating an airy atmosphere. 

If you want to add a touch of drama to your bathroom, add burgundy, plum, and teal in the form of towels, accents, and furniture.

Behr Subtle Touch 

  • LRV: 72

With its soft, blue-gray undertones and high LRV of 72, Subtle Touch makes a bathroom feel open and refreshing.

This Behr paint color naturally fades in the background, allowing accent colors and accessories to take center stage. 

Crisp whites in the form of towels and ceramics infuse the space with a timeless and clean aesthetic.

Meanwhile, seafoam green and muted coral add a touch of vibrancy and oasis-like ambiance without overwhelming the space. 

Behr Midnight Sky 

  • LVR: 6 

Reminiscent of the deep, velvety expanse of the midnight sky, this Behr paint color is a rich and moody navy blue that adds a touch of drama and sophistication to your bathroom.

To complete the look, pair dark navy walls with glimmering gold fixtures, azure accents, and crisp white ceramics to replicate a starlit midnight sky. 

Since it’s fairly dark, it’s best used as an accent wall.

If you want to use it as the main backdrop, make sure your bathroom is spacious to prevent it from appearing too overwhelming. 

It’s also a good idea to add ample lighting, such as strategically placed fixtures or large mirrors, to brighten up the space and counterbalance the darkness of the color.  

Benjamin Moore Snowfall White 

  • LRV: 89

White is often criticized as droll and uninspiring, especially when used as a primary backdrop. 

As someone who regularly uses white backdrops in an array of projects, I couldn’t disagree more. White allows other design elements to take center stage without overshadowing them. 

In this case, Benjamin Moore Snowfall White works brilliantly with various shades of gray.

The combination feels clean and refreshing, especially when used alongside smooth, high-gloss finishes and sharp silhouettes. 

To add a touch of color to an otherwise neutral palette, introduce greenery in the form of houseplants. 

Plants with colorful foliage can act as living accent pieces, creating visual interest and adding a natural ambiance commonly seen in spas.

Behr Nature’s Gift 

  • LRV: 35

Nature’s Gift is a gorgeous gray-green with subtle blue undertones.

It beautifully complements weathered wood, handwoven accents, and antique metals, making it a top choice for homeowners with a farmhouse-style bathroom.

It pairs nicely with both light and dark accents, offering versatility and timeless charm to your bathroom design. 

To create a spa-like ambiance, consider adding light-colored wooden elements, such as a vanity or shelving, matte black or deep charcoal accessories, and crisp white accents in the form of towels, bath mats, candles, and plant pots. 

Sherwin Williams Napery

  • LRV: 73

Sherwin Williams Napery brings a unique and unexpected rustic charm that evokes the comfort of a sunlit spa haven.

This off-white hue nicely complements a white-on-white color scheme or a mix of subtle tones for a versatile and timeless aesthetic. 

The monochromatic palette creates a sense of openness and sophistication, which is common in spa settings. 

Meanwhile, soft grays, muted blues, and gentle pastels add depth and visual interest.
