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.

The homeowner’s favorite color was blue in Southeastern Designer Showhouse 2017 (above), and I’m a huge admirer of how the hue was repeated throughout the sophisticated and timeless interiors.

I recently blogged about a collaboration between Airstream and Pottery Barn, and much of the decor also features a soothing blue grey.

When I think of a perfect, soft, quiet, light blue gray paint color, a couple of my all-time favorite homes spring to mind, First, Brooke and Steve Giannetti’s Patina Farm.

While so many other modern farmhouse designs incorporate a more austere look of black painted steel, it was such a lovely calm color choice for interiors graced with peacefully hushed colors.

Second, Desiree Ashworth’s unforgettable custom French cottage with its Gustavian design details and soft blue-grey trim has such an ethereal, unique vibe.

Farrow & Ball Pavilion Gray 242

“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.”

2. Farrow & Ball Blue Gray 91

“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.”

3. Farrow & Ball Lamp Room Gray 88

Farrow & Ball Lamp Room Gray 88 “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.”
