Blue and White Wall Paint Ideas

When paired with white, blue is a timeless hue for any room. Whether you choose a cool, muted shade for walls or a rich navy for trim, a room clad in blue and white provides an instant classic with plenty of flexibility to change up decor over time. From soothing bathroom colors and calming bedroom shades to preppy botanical hues for living rooms and dining areas, there’s no wrong way to decorate with blue and white.

If you love the idea of a fresh blue and white palette but aren’t ready to cover your whole room in the hue, opt for a wall color with blue undertones like Sherwin-Williams Oceanside or a pale sky blue like Upward. Keep in mind that light blues can look a little more intense than they read on a paint chip, so ask to see how the shade looks on your wall before purchasing it.

Dark blues can also work well in a room that’s anchored by wood furniture and decor. Pine and Poplar blogger Zoe used Sherwin-Williams Moscow Midnight to create a soothing bedroom aesthetic that draws attention to the natural wood of her bed frame and dresser. The dark tone also works to tie together the shades of blue in her art and rug for a cohesive look.
