Blue Paint Colors: Favorite Picks From Designers

Blue Paint Colors: Favorite Picks from Designers. There are blues to fit every mood. It can be masculine, feminine, formal, whimsical or sexy. It can range from a soft soothing sea foam to a bold and vibrant sapphire blue. With so many varying shades, it’s no wonder it was chosen by the world as its favorite color.

Blue is the color of the sky and the ocean. It symbolizes intelligence, trust, wisdom, loyalty, confidence and faith. Blue is another one of those colors that can be paired with almost any other and look fabulous. It also works well with virtually any decorating style. Think of how blue is used in coastal, farmhouse or traditional style spaces to name just a few.

Yesterday, I did a post on decorating with turquoise. I thought I’d follow that up with some of the favorite blue paint colors of top designers as found in House Beautiful Colors for Your Home. If you’re looking for the right blue, these colors will give you a good place to start.

    When I was younger, blue was my fav color and in fact that was the color of my bedroom as a young girl. I guess I wanted something ‘different’ as an adult and pretty much stopped using it, but I guess I’ve come full circle as I seem to be gravitating toward it again. In fact, I recently started a pinterest board with blue rooms and was considering doing a ‘blue’ post highlighting my favs. I think I like the lighter colors the most, but I’ll take any of them!

    Blue Seafoam, Verditer Blue and Sassy Blue are all older SW colors. They can mix them for you at the counter but they don’t carry paint chips for them anymore.
