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 timeless (no matter what you may see from trend reports) and popular with fans of neutral calm palettes, and I previously blogged about designer favorite greys here.

However, today, we will narrow the focus to 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.

Blue greys bring to mind colors of the sea and are perfect when you’re after a coastal feel.

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.

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

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.”

    Wow, well done, very helpful. Light blue grey is such a nice and comforting colour, i think it’s great for decorating with porcelain bathroom fixtures. I’m getting into painting my house near waltham ma and absolutely use this color for my bathroom and living room. Thank for sharing, I highly appreciate your post and blog

    Is the number @ the end of the paint color name important in order to get the correct color or is just the brand and color name enough without the number?! Just curious! I’ve always been a little confused about this! 🤪Ha!

      I think the numbers are more important on the brand’s end and not the consumer’s. Great question that I should research further!
