Rainy day here in Charleston so I thought I would brighten up that gray sky with some of my favorite blues. Most of you know that blue is my favorite color: if you look in my closet, it is blue; our bathroom, blue; dining room, blue. Love blue. So here are some of my favorite Benjamin Moore tried and true blues. Palladian Blue. This is a really wonderful warm blue. Patriotic White. This doesn’t look like a lot of blue, but when paired next to a strong white, this blue really shines. This is the color of our piazza ceiling.Bird’s Egg. Very bright blue. Is a bit more turquoise on the walls, but I painted my graduate school apartment this color and it made me happy every day.Caribbean Blue Water. Great in high gloss, either on walls or furniture. Wythe Blue. Another color that looks completely different on walls than it does here. It is much brighter and less gray than it is here. We used it on our dining room trim paired with Farrow & Ball Pointing on the walls. Gentleman’s Gray. One of my favorites. A beautiful navy. Our bedroom in our NYC apartment. Loved it. So calming and soothing. If you love blue as much as I do, do you have some favorite blues?
