What is the LRV of Sea Salt and why is it important? 

It’s important to know how paint colors are affected by Light Reflectance Value, or “LRV”. If you’re not familiar with LRV I would encourage you to read this article I wrote on it. Lighting plays a HUGE part when you’re trying to find the perfect paint color, and knowing a color’s light reflectance value can be very helpful!

Sherwin Williams Sea Salt has an LRV of 64.  It falls in the middle of the scale, meaning it’s not very dark, and it’s not very light. When you use this color in a room with plenty of natural light, Sea Salt can appear more blue, while in a room with less natural lighting, it can appear more green.
