Four Attractive Blue Paint Colors That Will Never Disappoint

Blue paint will never go out of style. It's a classic and timeless color. It's also highly versatile, working with every design style under the sun. Think about it-navy painted cabinets would look just as good in a super modern kitchen as they would in a traditional style kitchen. Blue also pairs really well with pretty much any other color out there. You just can't go wrong with it. Here are four tried and true blue paint colors that will never disappoint.

1. Benjamin Moore - Blue Lace

The living room of former J.Crew queen Jenna Lyons is ICONIC. The wall color is so good - a beautiful and subtle, cool, blue-gray. It's the perfect backdrop for her effortless-chic style. The exact paint color remains a mystery, and believe me, I have scoured the internet far and wide. But, Benjamin Moore's Lace Blue is thought to be the closet match.

2. Farrow & Ball - Hague Blue

Hague Blue is a high drama, dark blue with green undertones. It's a very popular paint color and it's no surprise. The deep saturated color gives the living room below the perfect moody vibe. It's commanding, but still very cozy. Hague Blue looks so yummy against the equally saturated salmon sofa. It's the perfect color for bringing sophisticated drama to a space.

3. Benjamin Moore Gossamer Blue

This soft & subtle blue is neither dark or light. It's perfectly balanced with just the right amount of pigment. I used this color in the Contemporary Vintage Modern House project in one of the kid's bedrooms. The west-facing bedroom gets really nice afternoon sun and the way the color changes throughout the day depending on the light & shadows in the room is pretty magical. In the morning, it looks more subtle and gray, but in the afternoon it is much bluer.

4. Farrow & Ball Inchyra Blue

If Hague Blue isn't your thing, maybe Farrow & Ball's equally moody Inchyra Blue will do it for you. This color doesn't really want to be put in a box. "What color is Inchyra Blue?" is actually a suggested google search. Is it dark green? Is it navy? Is it a super dark teal? Is it slate gray? Well, it can be all of them depending on the light. Fun fact: this paint color was created specifically for the front door of a historic house in Scotland. I absolutely love how the color was carried onto the ceiling in the dining room designed by Arlyn Hernandez below. It takes the drama of the color up several notches.
