Re: Is Dark Blue the New Black?

i am all about the dark blues but not everywhere--and not on all the cabinets----need something to ground the room and but not turn it into a cave----

Re: Is Dark Blue the New Black?

I much prefer the dark blue and many of the pictures showing the color are lovely and appealing.  Back in the early seventies I had one wall of a living room painted navy blue, the other walls off white.  The navy stood out in many ways and enhanced everything in the room!  Love.

I don't know about "new black" but it wouldn't surprise me to see this as a rebellion from the years of gray.

The gray paint in my house has a blue undertone.  It works well with shades of blue, gray, and even black.  White in some rooms makes for a good contrast.

I’m not really a blue person when it comes to selecting colors for my home. Still, I like most of these. I don’t think I would do every wall in a room dark blue, but an accent wall like the second bedroom or partial wall like in the bathrooms might be ok for me. 

 

I like the use of blue in these rooms best.

These were some of my favorites as well. I love the use of navy in these rooms.
