The Tropical Vacation Palette

Nix inspires color choices by pulling colors from everyday life.


The Tropical Vacation Palette is the perfect combination of everything you love about the beach –  refreshing oceanwater, coastal treasures, and velvety sand. Sherwin-Williams carries gorgeous paint colors that remind us of vacations spent out in the sun, and they have fun names too! Lagoon, is a cool toned blue-green color that is the perfect complement to Summer Day, a lively yet subtle shade of orange. Welcome White ties the two colors together to create a great palette for your powder room, guest bedroom, or living room.

How to brand-cross reference in the Nix Paints app

The Nix Paints app is a great tool for finding similar colors in different paint brands and collections. By simply viewing a selected color or saving a scan, you can find similar colors in seconds. You will be able to find both excellent (the best matches), and good matches for a specific paint color. This feature is awesome for when you have a specific paint brand in mind, you’re looking for a good deal, or are just looking for different options.

In the image to the right, we have paired the Nix Mini Color Sensor with the Nix Paints app to brand-cross reference Serene Sea by PPG to Benjamin Moore Paints. In moments, the Nix Paints app narrowed down the options to San Francisco Bay and Lafayette Blue. It’s just that easy!
