Moody Blues of Interior Design (Part 2): “I’ve Got the Blues…”

As I mentioned in yesterday’s blog, I absolutely have “the blues” right now! In fact, several of my recent interior design projects – involving the fabulous color BLUE! – have spawned several additions to my go-to list of colors.  Some of those include:

In the blue-gray family, I love Benjamin Moore HC146 Wedgewood Gray….  Lovely on ceilings and in bedrooms!

This photo shows a kitchen pictured in House Beautiful, which is painted Woodlawn Blue HC-147, a lighter version of Wedgewood Gray.

In the blue-green family, I love Benjamin Moore  HC-149 Buxton Blue ….. A great all- around shade that is perfectly suited for a family room or beach house.

And, for a deep, dark blue how about Benjamin Moore  2064-20 Patriot Blue (Remember the American flag official colors from Monday’s blog post?!)?! I love the intensity of this color….. A smashing choice for a library or man’s study!

Unknown shade of blue

Although I am not certain what the name of this blue is, it somewhat reminds me of Benjamin Moore's Patriot Blue, although definitely not exact. Textiles in photo from Fiona Douglas.
