Why paint a room in Blue? Why not, after all blue is the worlds most popular colour!
It is often associated with depth and stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith and truth. Blue is considered beneficial to the mind and body. It slows human metabolism and produces a calming effect.
Today we are featuring 12 rooms showcasing how beautiful blue can be, all painted in Benjamin Moore colours. We threw in a few fun front door colours in blue too.
Alfresco 1672 is a luxurious shade of deep, dusty blue that inspires a sense of relaxation. Pair it with white and gray accents for a calming space in your home. (via @brightbazaar)
Not sure if you can handle a whole room painted blue? Try one wall, it will make an impact and if you bring in a few other accents (like area rug) it ties the room together. This wall is painted in Kensington Blue CC-780.
Newburyport Blue HC-155 is a refined and elegant color that will beautifully complement your dining room display.
Consider painting your ceilings, moldings, and doors to help transform your space. Make the walls pop with Teal Ocean 2049-30 on the walls.

This bathroom is so fresh and so clean, with it’s mix of watery blue and white colour scheme and large windows letting in the sunlight. It’s not a surprise this colour is called Clearest Ocean Blue 2064-40.
The sky is blue, so blue will always work outside…the only factor is your brick, stucco or siding. Paint your door blue to say “Home Sweet Home” before you even step inside. These doors are fun and fresh, from left: Blue Danube 2062-30 & Brilliant Blue 2065-30.

Thanks for sending us some pics of your newly renovated home Debra, we
love the way you used CC-40 for walls, ceiling and trim…then
introduced a focal wall in 2119-10…a soft black.
There is a whole new trend in playrooms and they aren’t painted in primary colours. These rooms have inspirational words and fun added touches, they can be easily transformed back into any type of space when kids outgrow them.
This playroom is in Benjamin’s Moore’s CC-500 Ranchwood, it is a neutral taupe that will flow with most colour schemes.
Use natural elements like sisal, wood and metal to give texture and interest. Who doesn’t want a tipi in their play room?
This playroom feature wall has useful built-in storage and a dark wood accent wall, creating somewhat of a media section.
The baskets on the lower shelves are painted in Benjamin Moore’s 2122-40 Smoke and stencilled in white numbers. They could be painted in multiple colours, even if only in the gray tones. Tester pots are the perfect paint size for projects like this.
These built-in’s are great for storage and the design would work for most rooms, all you need to do is add a fun rug, table/chairs and a chalkboard and you have a little class room to play. This room is painted in Benjamin’s Moore’s CC-765 Avalon.
