Beautiful Blues For Your Walls

I often am hired for paint consultations.  Selecting the right color for a room really is important.  Don't go it alone! Investing in a professional paint consultation will save you time and money.

Benjamin Moore is one of my favorite paint companies.  They offer some great advice on shades of blue for your home which I share with you in today's article.

Blue_on_wallsWe often think of blue as calm, cool and collected. But in the right company, blue can be vibrant— even vivacious. Just like your favourite blue jeans, blue is versatile and can convey many personalities.

Elegant wythe blue (HC-143) is Benjamin Moore's 2012 Colour of the Year. This classic blue-green from our Historical Collection offers comfort, stability and a sense of nostalgia. Today we are seeing this beautiful blue paired with creams and greys for a modern retro look, or combined with earthy greens light and dark for a naturally rooted, yet refined, look.

Another 2012 blue, amethyst shadow (CC-930), has a red undertone with a touch of grey — transforming it into a subtle violet tone. Paired with warm espresso and creamy grey, this blue can make a splashy accent as it did in this home office environment.

With a deceiving name, nimbus gray (2131-50) is a soft, cool blue that brings a lively balance to an interior with warm furnishings and rich textiles. Paired with crisp white and hot pink, this blue-grey is very refreshing and brings a contemporary spin to any interior.
