Light Blue Paint Colors, Aqua Decor & Subtle Chambray Now
My best tip for you right off the bat when you’re seeking the perfect light blue? Look at the gray range. Last year, I painted shutters on our tiny house Boothbay Gray (I’ll show you one day!), and it’s a super sweet light blue! Gray blues, shades of blue, and ocean like hues are among my favorites because the color blue hints at relaxation, calmness, and tranquility.
These doors below? Sherwin Williams Uncertain Gray.
Pretty Light Blue Shades to Try!
Need an idea for a slightly baby blue paint color like the shutters above?
Farrow & Ball Lulworth Blue No. 89
A similar option is Behr 560A-1 Pale Sky, a slightly baby blue or pale periwinkle from a color family of cool skylight blues.
Benjamin Moore Water’s Edge is another gorgeous go-to color designers favor for restful accent walls and bedrooms.
If you favor this soft atmospheric look, take a peek at Behr Light Drizzle N480-1, Behr Hush PPU26-16, Behr Cumberland Fog 560E-2, and Behr Watery HDC-CT-26.
FARROW & BALL Light Blue
Gray blues, shades of blue, and ocean like hues are often smart choices for bedrooms since the color blue hints at relaxation, calmness, and tranquility.
Proof positive that we truly must sample paint colors first and not judge them by photos online! This hue’s swatch above reads different depending on which photos you view online (looks European blue-grey in images of this showhouse kitchen).

When you’re going for the palest, sophisticated light blues…steer yourself to the grey section.
Easiest way to see if a color is right? Order samples to be delivered to your door with Samplize (a peel and stick sheet of “paint” to stick on your wall and easily move around to other walls!).
