Serenity, tranquillity and calm. Ocean, sea and sky. The popularity of blue is palpable. From inspiration online, to advice from experts in-store, let us help you find the best blue paint colours for any project.

Blue is a favourite for those interested in exploring colours “beyond” neutral. Shades of blue are synonymous with design dependability and classic style. Livable and graceful, it’s always a good time to dive into blue.

Warm + Cool + Most Popular Paint Colours

Here are some of our most popular shades of blue, including Breath of Fresh Air 806, the Colour of the Year 2014.

Choosing Blue Paint Colours: Consider the Room

Navy, baby blue, turquoise–the colour blue is varied and dynamic. Dark blues, like Hale Navy HC-154 and Gentleman’s Gray 2062-20, are often popular for offices and studies. Lighter, silvery blues are favourites for bathrooms and bedrooms thanks to the serenity and calm this favourite colour evokes.

By its very nature, blue is a cool colour as seen in Yarmouth Blue HC-150 and Van Deusen Blue HC-156. Green undertones contribute to warmer blues, including the always-popular Palladian Blue HC-144 and Bird’s Egg 2051-60.

Go Bold with Blue

Consider going bolder with the blue family, as seen in this all-blue room. Deep Ocean 2058-30 on walls, ceiling and even trim creates a seamless, energetic design. Dimension and drama comes by way of sheen: lustrous semi-gloss on the ceiling scatters light through the room, and a more flat eggshell on walls creates a soft, calming envelope. Patterned pillows, curtains or other home accessories are perfect anchors for saturated blue.

Accent on Blue

Not ready to go all blue? Deep blue makes for a rich accent colour for hallways, entryways, home entryways – anywhere that you are looking for a stroke of drama.

Consider charismatic cobalts like Big Country Blue 2066-30 and Patriot Blue 2064-20, or for a classic vibe, Old Navy 2063-10 is a favorite. In thoughtful amounts, these shades of blue bring a stylish spark of energy to any space.

The Allure of Blue-Gray Paint

Gray is commonly associated with sleek, modern design. Blue can create an inviting vibe in any contemporary or traditional room. So it comes as no surprise that those interested in both of these colour families use blue-gray paint as their bridge. Mt. Rainier Gray 2129-60 and November Skies 2128-50 are among our favourite blue-gray paints.

Exteriors in Shades of Blue

In varying degrees of lightness, darkness and saturation, shades of blue paint on home exteriors are a favoured choice for homeowners. In addition to complementing any landscape, the universal appeal of the colour blue conjures an instantaneous feeling of warmth and friendliness.
