I hope you guys had a fantastic weekend! Welcome to another Paint It Monday!
Over the last six months or so, I have found myself going straight to Behr Paints when I’m recommending a blue paint color. The reason for this is that Behr (by far) has the largest and widest variety of blues and the blues are always spot on, very rich in depth and very dependable. Just look at all these gorgeous blues in the Behr fan deck:
For some reason (I would love to know why), there are never any crazy hues jumping out with Behr blues like some of the other paint lines. Behr just really does the blues right and there is something unique about the blue pigmentation that just really stands out. I’m not sure if it has to do something with their base color or if they just really nail each color but if you’re having trouble finding just the right blue, I highly suggest taking a look at Behr.
If you want to zone in on Behr blue, you can checkout their website under their color selector page, which is great for going right to a specific shade. This color selector page is found here on the Behr wesbite. Notice how you can scroll up if you want to see more blues with green or down, for blues with more purple.
So today, I wanted to share just a few of my favorite Behr Blues that I pulled together into a color palette for you to see the variation in shades:
Before I go into the colors more in depth, I do have to warn you. Blues in general (especially light blues) are very tricky because of the variations in the lighting in a space. Please, please, if you’re interested in one of these colors, paint a large sample board (on poster board) first before diving into the color. These blues are meant to be great starting points to close in on the perfect shade of blue in your space with your lighting.
My favorite blue in today’s palette is Behr “Prelude”, which is a gorgeous mid-tone blue/gray mix. Really, just the perfect balance:
Prelude by Behr
I also absolutely love Behr “English Channel” shared here on HGTV “Rate My Space” and it’s the perfect mix of a navy and indigo:
I have seen “English Channel” in various lighting situations and it always looks gorgeous. If you’re looking for a darker indigo/navy color, English Channel is for sure a great color to check out!
For a blue with a hint of green, one of my favorite’s is Behr “Smokey Blue”. This would be a fantastic color for a piece of furniture as well:
For a very light blue almost white, I also love this “Cumberland Fog” that I found on this adorable blog called Penelope’s Oasis here:
For another very light blue, I love Behr “Little Dipper”:
Next time you’re at Home Depot, just take a peek at the huge color selection of blues from Behr. Again, there is no other paint line that has as many blues as Behr in such a wide array of hues.
Do you have a favorite blue that you love in your home? We would love to know! We would love it if you shared it in the comment section.
