these season’s blue seems to have taken on a romantic, moody side. everything i’m seeing out there on the interwebs leans towards the deeper hues of blue, whether they be a dark gray-blue like benjamin moore’s gravel gray, or farrow and ball’s almost seafaring shades of stone blue and drawing room blue (all clever names for a dramatic color!). feeling a bit of trepidation? might i suggest starting off slow with one eye-popping accent wall? here are a few looks to inspire those moody blues.

  1. I’m usually a white walls kind of girl, but these blues are beautiful! They actually look rather neutral to me and let everything else in the rooms stand out. And all of the fireplace mantles are gorgeous!

  2. Love a good blue with a hint of green. it would be so hard to pick a favorite one of these, but I really love the architectural details of many of the photos and the one with the black mantle on the blue wall. right up my alley.

  3. The pictures of the various blues are great. Wish you had given the names of the paints used in each room. Without the brand of paint and color, the pictures are a total waste.

    • i’m sorry you think so, since i spent a considerable amount of time putting the post together. but this was merely meant to be an inspirational post about the mood blue paint can create. i did indicate in the copy a few blue paints i felt could help you get the look. it’s such a subjective thing – what hue works well in your personal space, that i would have a hard time recommending an actual paint color. and not all these images provided that information.

  4. I chased all the links to see if I could find any paint names, a simple enough thing to do. But I only came up with one: Rue Magazine’s tour of Bianca Sotelo’s apartment. Her living room is painted in Farrow & Ball’s Oval Room Blue. Her bedroom is Benjamin Moore’s Dark Teal.
