Mount Etna Sherwin Williams Paint Color Review

A rich, jewel-toned blue-ish green shade is the perfect moody hue to kick up the style in any room. It’s a strong choice for interior and exterior applications to complement just about any neutral paint color.

Deep, rich jewel tones are some of my favorite colors. Grays, greens, blues, and teals are seemingly mixed together to create Mount Etna by Sherwin Williams.

It’s a stunning color choice for a monochromatic look (including the ceiling), as an accent wall, or as a shade for decorative pieces – like furniture.

Jewel tones can be rather challenging, but with the right accessories, you can create a timeless but trending atmosphere. This color will kick up the vibes in any room!

Mount Etna by Sherwin Williams is a gorgeous bold shade of green-blue that is a great choice if you're looking for a moody paint color for your home

Mount Etna Sherwin Williams Overview

This dark greenish-teal shade is just heavenly! We used this paint color on our modern vintage vanity in our bathroom. Because of the other colors in the room and the lack of natural light, this beautiful shade translated into dark green, which makes the space feel more tranquil and relaxing.

This master bathroom renovation brings together both vintage and modern interior design styles, with a focal point of this vintage dresser used as a vanity

This moody hue would go well as an accent wall, office color, or master bedroom. Depending on the lighting and other elements in the room, this shade could also appear as gray or blue.

Mount Etna Sherwin Williams Undertones

As an ashy blue shade, Mount Etna has gray and green undertones.

Working with undertones can be tricky. If you are planning on using Mount Etna paint color in your space, stick with this rule of thumb. As you are purchasing drapes, comforters, blankets, towels, pillows, etcetera, stick to colors that also have gray undertones. This will help create a harmonious flow through the room.

A word of advice when painting a room: A paint sample will look completely different in the store compared to your home. This is all because of the lighting and other decor items in the room. I recommend picking up a few paint samples and painting a few swatches on the walls as a test before fully committing to a paint color.

Observing the room at different times of the day will help you get a sense of how the color will change with the sunlight, lightbulb temperatures, and fabrics. All of these elements play a big part in how a paint color appears.

    1. Thats exactly what we’re thinking about. This as the exterior siding color with white trim (or cedar trim) and a gold, copper, orange or brown roof. Something like that.

      1. Yes I think that would look great! If you end up choosing this color for your exterior, be sure to come back and share a photo with us. I’d love to see how it turns out.

  1. I have painted my lower kitchen cabinets and floating open shelves this beautiful, moody mount etna. I am planning to do some medium wood tone floating shelves. I have white stack laundry unit and white appliances in the kitchen as well. I have black granite with a silver sparkle for countertops (I got the countertops on a good deal.) The lighting is ok not great; I don’t have the budget to upgrade it. Having said that, what do you recommend for wall and trim colors?
