Paint Ponder: Van Deusen Blue

Looking for a deep blue?  Designer Lindsay Coral Harper launched from a Stark carpet into this great Benjamin Moore paint color, Van Deusen Blue, HC-156. Recently featured in House Beautiful, the historical color brings plenty of pop.   It works great in a bedroom, but push it further into a nursery, den or even on kitchen cabinets.  Here are some rooms that show it off well…

Paint Ponder: Hague Blue

Miles Redd rocks it with this stunning door in Farrow & Ball’s Hague Blue.  It truly the most deep and wonderful blue I’ve ever seen.  It makes me want to jump on a flight to England and find the nearest pub.   So English and rich.  I love it.


Paint Ponder: Gentleman’s Gray

Recently we painted an office in a beautiful blue paint color, called Gentleman’s Gray.  Fitting for the man of the house who loved it and cozy enough for his wife.  This paint color is from Benjamin Moore who describes it as “formal and masculine, this blackened blue leans toward classic navy, suggesting beautifully tailored suits and traditional pea coats”.  Here’s some inspiration:
