My Top 5 Blue Paint Colors You Probably Haven’t Heard About

My Top 5 Blue Paint Colors

When it comes to transforming your home, paint is one of the biggest tools of the trade. The color blue is one of my favorites, which is no secret if you follow me on Instagram! I’ve tried many gorgeous blue paint colors in my own home and for clients alike. And now, I’ve narrowed down my top 5 blue paint colors you probably haven’t heard about!  Blue might just be the most versatile shade on the color wheel, it pairs so beautifully with other colors like jewel tones or neutrals that you just can’t go wrong with it. From rich sapphire tones to add a dash of drama to mid-toned nautical blues, let’s take a look at some of the most universally appealing blue paint colors. 

Motor City by Clare Paint

I used this calming, light gray-blue in my dining room called Motor City by Clare Paint and it is such a pretty color. It’s easy on the eyes and has cool undertones with the slightest hint of green. It’s modern, it’s refreshing and it’s a great way to segue into blues if you’re more of a white or gray walls kinda person. One thing to note, the formula by Clare Paint is unmatched, it goes on like butter!

Berrington Blue by Farrow and Ball 

Not for the faint of heart but a real strong mid-toned blue, Berrington Blue by Farrow and Ball has the perfect historic look to it. You’ve probably heard of Oval Room Blue by Farrow and Ball so think of this as the older, more glamorous cousin to that color. It has a fairly high dose of black to it but still makes for a comforting blue to retreat to. I’ve used it in Eesa’s nursery and paired it with Duck Green on the ceiling also by Farrow and Ball.

Blue Dusk by Benjamin Moore

What a stunner this office is, clad in Blue Dusk by Benjamin Moore from top to bottom! A muted ocean blue with gray undertones, this blue is a safe bet for all spaces. I wouldn’t hesitate to use it in a larger room because it’s so universally flattering. The funny thing is, using it in a tiny space like this home office, actually makes the room appear larger. Love the drama of painting all walls and the ceiling the same color. 

Providence Blue by Benjamin Moore

This gray-blue is actually very similar to Blue Dusk but Providence Blue is a slightly darker, less in-your-face blue. If a moody vibe is more your thing, I highly recommend Providence Blue by Benjamin Moore. I think it has a bit more green to it than Blue Dusk. I used it in a semi-gloss finish in my laundry room and it looks like such a glamorous nook to be in. I would easily pair this blue with any metal like polished nickel, black or even aged brass.

Silent Night by PPG

Last but definitely not least, we have the darkest of my top 5 blue paint colors, Silent Night by PPG. Even though it’s the darkest blue I have on this list, this loft I designed still looks light and airy. By keeping the ceiling white, light bounces off of it and creates less shadows. So if you’re looking to try a dark blue on your walls, this is a great designer tip so you don’t lose all the light in the room. Rich and jewel toned, this deep blue paint color is sure to be a crowd pleaser!

If you’re not ready to embrace a whole room painted a dark color, keep the ceiling white and use the dark tone only on walls to keep it looking bright.
