My best tip for you right off the bat when you’re seeking the perfect light blue? Look at the gray range. I just painted shutters on our tiny house Boothbay Gray (I’ll show you soon!), and it’s a super sweet light blue! These doors below? Sherwin Williams Uncertain Gray.

    My current house is all about shades of green, but the house I’m designing now, for the next chapter of our lives in River Dunes, NC, will be all about blue and white. So, thank you for the inspiration. I know I can always count on you to do my homework for me;)

      So looking forward to hearing about the next chapter and cheering you on, Celia. It’s going to be such a lovely adventure I’m sure! Happy Mother’s Day, friend.

    I’m amazed at how different the light blue paint looks in the designer kitchen versus the paint chip! Also the Annie Sloan paint is perfect on the table and chair, so cozy. Hope you’re enjoying your Mother’s Day πŸ™‚

      If I had the time, I would gather all the paints I mention and take photos to illustrate the point better! Thanks so much, friend. It feels like fall today so after being out in it this morning, I’m relaxing indoors happily now! xox

    For “the blues from Beethoven”, Moonlight Sonata, 1st Movement strikes an even ‘sadder’ more melancholy feeling. πŸ™‚ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nT7_IZPHHb0

    Gosh everytime I see these beautiful soft blues, I think I may, just may, try to use that lovely color as the accent in my LR. πŸ™‚

    Another wonderful post, Michele!

      Thanks, Connie. The whispery muted blues always have their way with me too. πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for taking this post for a spin. xox

    Michele, these colors are so serene and beautiful. I’ll have to try BM’s Paper White – that one is new to me πŸ™‚

      Hi Michelle!!
      What paint color would you suggest for a chambray blue? I am wanting to paint my sunroom floor a chambray and white check on the diagonal. I am needing a good chambray blue paint suggestion.
      Thank you so much!! I love reading your email each day!!! It adds beauty and inspiration!!

    Do you think rainwashed would be a good haunt blue for my porch ceiling?

      It looks so beautiful in the showhouse in Atlanta, doesn’t it? I would definitely try a sample first in case Rainwashed is too bright for your taste. If too bright, you can ask for a variation in the formula – say Rainwashed at 40% – and go from there until you get it just right. So many pretty blue possibilities!

    What an AMAZING collection of incredibly gorgeous hues of blues!

    I have to say I am leaning towards it more – but I am on the green blue mindset.

    I just bought our first king sized bed and bought the pick-stitch “porcelain blue” linen quilt collection. It is exquisite.

    I am a neutral girl, so adding color for me is a huge change. I will never be a complete color nut, but the hue is perfect for spring and summer.

    Found you from over at Mantle and Table. I just was part of the traveling teacup Barbara has going on.

    I am your newest follower. Thanks for the eye candy today.

      Hi Michele! It’s a pleasure to meet you and I’m so happy you visited. I know that pick-stitch quilt – my mom has it, and it’s gorgeous! I haven’t been able to use much blue in our current home, but I dream of a beachy coastal space with the palest aquas. I’ll visit you soon. πŸ™‚

      You bet! I’m so glad you found what you needed, and there is something about subtle pale aqua that I just find irresistible. I dream of a coastal home with liberal swaths of white and touches of blue everywhere! Best to you as you make that bedroom lovely. πŸ™‚
