Painting with Blue and Green

painting with blue and greenNot surprising that Benjamin Moore chose Breath of Fresh Air (806) as its color of 2014. Close to a sky blue on a sunny day, the color is an up lifting light blue, pale but not quite pastel, calm and reassuring. One can’t help but feel a sense of relaxation settle in around it. Painting with blue and green works well because both are soothing and refreshing colors. Blue is associated with trust while green, with its tie to nature, relates to the essence of life. Together they remind us of cool water and the elements. They are extremely popular for bathrooms and bedrooms but certainly not relegated to just those rooms. Combining the two into an analogous color palette or into a single blue green color is universally appealing. Here are some great room designs using this palette. Another wonderful Benjamin Moore color is Palladium blue, which sits on that continuum between the two colors. (See credits by downloading photos)
