Looking for something to go with SW Rainwashed

jamimacSeptember 29, 2011

I used Sherwin Williams Rainwashed in our master bathroom and LOVE the color. It's exactly what I was wanting. My plan was to go with a gray color in the bedroom and accent with aquas and yellows. The first color I chose (Ozark Shadows) came out lavendery and I think clashes with the Rainwashed. The next sample was too muddy. I'm thinking about going with Comfort Gray, but don't know if that will clash with Rainwashed. I think Quietude might be more green than I was wanting. If I can't find a gray I'm leaning towards using Rainwashed. Would that look funny used in two adjoining rooms? Thanks!

i have a rainwashed bedroom, and painted the tray ceiling rainwashed too. if your bathroom adjoins the bedroom, i think it would look great in rainwashed as well. I think they call it en suite? Very classy. A flat finish on the bedroom looks really soft and comfortable. I have never slept better than with this color/finish combo. and maybe go with gray and yellow accents then? My other colors are light caramel, super dark olive that reads brown, a little leafy green, and just a hint of purple (from a large hydrangea photo)

Thanks so much! That is exactly what I was looking for! I used satin in the bathroom and I wasn't sure what to use in the bedroom.

For a gray, use Grayish or Repose Gray. Or I would go down 2 from Rainwashed & do Halcyon Green. It's absolutely gorgeous. And I second the flat finish.

jamimac - do you have a picture of your master bath? We are thinking about using SW rainwashed in our dining room, but I haven't seen it in person yet!
