Bold blue and black paint is a favorite of ours for adding a rich accent color in any space. Both have a bit of edge that can add depth and interest. Paired with light woods and white walls, these colors create dramatic contrast and make a statement. Pair them with traditional elements, and they take on sophisticated warmth. Today we are sharing the ways we use rich saturated blue and black paint colors to add beauty in our recent projects.
Benjamin Moore Midnight Blue
Benjamin Moore Midnight Blue is a dark inky blue with gray undertones. In some lights it can look almost black. We love the way it pairs with the light HEWN Weathered Floors and crisp Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace White Walls in this bunk room for the boys.
Dunn Edwards Salem Black
Dunn Edwards reads as a rich inky blue in our Torina Project kitchen. It’s a little edgier than navy and creates a sophisticated coastal feel that we love. See more of this color and kitchen here.
Benjamin Moore Black Panther
A black accent wall adds beautiful depth to your space. Although you might think black would feel cold, the opposite is true. A black accent wall works as a neutral that creates a greater depth and even cozy warmth to your space. We love it paired here with light oak cabinetry.
Benjamin Moore Black Panther has been a favorite black paint of ours. It’s a black that provides beautiful contrast to crisp whites and reads as a true black (not blue) in bright lit spaces. We love it paired here with the custom brass rails. To see where else we’ve used this color visit our Summit Creek Project Laundry Room and our Family Ties Project Kitchen.
Benjamin Moore Black Beauty
Bold beams painted Benjamin Moore Black Beauty add chic contrast to this bright airy office space. Painting the wood transformed this dated room and created a fresh modern look.
