Shades of Blue
We’ve rounded up the most commonly used shades of blue with our own personal thoughts on each:
Sky Blue – Fresh and vivid, this shade is guaranteed to bring energy to the room and its occupants. Perfect for casual seating like the living room.
Turquoise Blue -This shade complements other blues beautifully along with greens. The color is serene and trendy.
Pale Blue – For those with lots of white molding, select a pale blue for a zen-like room that will bring you peace and draw emphasis to the white color of the molding.
Cool Blue – A mature and regal blue that is ideal for a boy’s room. It’s a rich tone that makes a statement.
Aquamarine – For the bathroom, use a softer turquoise and bring a little bit of the sea into your home.
Periwinkle – A blue-purple that is lively and playful. Throw a splash of this into your living room or the game room and the fun will never end.
Midnight Blue – This is the deepest shade of blue and one of the harder shades to work with on its own. Consider pairing it with a white creme or lighter colors
Teal Blue – For an attention getter, try a deeper shade of turquoise that is bold and fierce.
Silver Blue – One of our personal favorites, an ideal neutral blue for the dining room or formal living.
Gray Blue – A color that is livelier than common grays but contemporary and excellent for serving as an accent shade.
