9 of the Best Benjamin Moore Blue Paint Colors

By: Stevie Miller |

Did you know that blue is the most popular favorite color in the world? It’s true! People just can’t get enough of those soothing, cool vibes. 

In terms of home decor, blues are fantastic. Not only do they coordinate well with cool favorites like grays and greens, but in many cases, they can even act like neutrals. Just like your favorite pair of jeans can go with anything, navy blue is being hailed as “the new neutral”. 

Another reason blue is becoming more popular is because we’re all looking to bring some more calm and serenity into our lives, and blue is perfect for that. 

So kick back, relax, and take a look at the very best blue colors that Benjamin Moore has to offer. You’re sure to find inspiration for your next home refresh.
