6 Gorgeous Light Blue Grey Paint Colors for Calm Interiors

Raise your hand if you love a timeless blue grey color for interior walls or decor accents! I’m a raving fan.  Grey paint colors are still all the rage for many lovers of neutral calm palettes, and I previously blogged about designer favorite greys here. However, today, we will narrow in on beautiful chalky blue greys which can be tricky to get right. When too cool and blue, the color runs the risk of baby nursery blue, and too warm can read muddy green or taupe. So let’s explore 6 Gorgeous Light Blue Grey Paint Colors for Calm Interiors. These paint colors have earned accolades from happy decorators.

The homeowner’s favorite color was blue in last year’s Southeastern Designer Showhouse, and I’m a huge admirer of how the hue was repeated throughout the sophisticated and timeless interiors.

It’s a color I love so you can’t miss light blue greys in the abstracts I paint:

6 Gorgeous Light Blue Grey Paint Colors for Calm Interiors

When I think of a perfect, soft, quiet, light blue gray paint color, Brooke and Steve Giannetti’s Patina Farm project comes to mind. They painted their steel framed doors and windows with a custom paint color similar to Farrow & Ball’s Pavilion Gray. While so many other modern farmhouse designs call for black painted steel, it was such a lovely calm color choice for interiors graced with peacefully hushed colors.

Can you even imagine how the mood of these tranquil farmhouse spaces might change had these frames been painted black?

So let’s start out with a beautiful chalky light blue grey similar to the custom color used at Paina Farm.

“This classic mid grey was originally created for a bespoke pavilion, but is also reminiscent of an elegant 18th century Swedish colour. One of the Architectural Neutrals, the subtle blue undertones of Pavilion Gray add a contemporary touch and sense of spaciousness. Combine with Dimpse, Blackened or Manor House Gray in any combination for a scheme that is perfect for the modern family home.”

2. Farrow & Ball Blue Gray 91

Farrow & Ball Blue Gray 91 "This is one of those indeterminate colors that hovers somewhere between gray and green, though interestingly, it looks a lot more blue in a well-lit room. It's so nuanced that it's difficult to categorize, which is why I find it appealing. Pair it with creamy whites and, for those who dare to broaden the boundaries of typical Swedish decor, not-quite black." —Shea Soucie

“With its subtle mix of blue, green and black pigments, Blue Gray creates the most relaxed of rooms that feel as if they have always been there. It is a cooler, more weathered version of French Gray and has the same almost magical quality of gently shifting between blue and grey depending on the light and time of day.”

“Our most traditional blue grey was originally created when a white room had been stained by the trimming of lamp wicks. Lamp Room Gray creates a softer more lived in finish than Pavilion Gray, while retaining a sense of timelessness. It is surprisingly strong when used in smaller rooms but softens in larger, well lit spaces.”
