My top picks for blues that are perfect for your kitchen cabinets or walls.
HAIL NAVY, BENJAMIN MOORE
The grey undertones add a sophisticated, rich look.
GALE FORCE, SHERWIN WILLIAMS
The depth of this blue is perfect for pulling off a coastal vibe.
WHISPERING SPRING, BENJAMIN MOORE
This light blue shade adds both depth and dimension. It works wonders on expanding small spaces.
DISTANCE, SHERWIN WILLIAMS
The cozy hue has a touch of blend of grey and indigo. Use it in an all white room, with natural materials, or in your powder room. The cozy element this shade brings is ideal for a calming environment.
BLUEBIRD, PAINT AND PAPER LIBRARY
I like this shade for a bright pop of color. Your kids are sure to love it too, try it in a children’s room instead of your typical pink or yellow.
TRANQUILITY, BENJAMIN MOORE
Moody and almost neutral, it makes for an excellent background for bolder colors.
LULWORTH BLUE, FARROW & BALL
Clean, crisp, and beautiful. This pale blue works in virtually any room.
It’s mysterious, bold, and sexy. This darker shade can appear almost black in minimal light. Don’t be afraid, I urge you to talk a walk on the dark side.
