It’s time for another edition of Remodelaholic’s Color Files. Today, I’m featuring some of the best paint colors for walls and furnishings that are in the lightest shades of blue. Blue is one of nature’s favorite colors, appearing more in the great outdoors than any other color.
Blue is the ultimate “cool” color when it comes to color temperatures. Light blue is considered to be one of the most calming colors, making it a favorite for bedrooms. It’s also a color that marketing gurus have determined to be the one that gives the best impression of being clean, which means it’s a great choice for hardworking rooms like kitchens, laundry rooms, and bathrooms. Some of the very lightest shades of blue are considered to be neutrals in home décor, since these work really well paired up with just about any other color. And light blue is one of those pale colors that, when painted on the walls, can actually make small rooms look bigger.
I hope you’ll find some inspiration in this collection of light blue paint colors being used in real rooms. Already got a favorite hue of baby blue? Share it with us in the comments!
