Move over grey, currently it’s all about the blues. You’ve probably seen blue paint splashed over walls and kitchen cabinets everywhere lately. With so many gorgeous shades popping up, there’s no wonder it’s become a designers favorite. There is a perfect shade for every room, wall, or ceiling.

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.

BRIGAND, C2

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.
