Colors of the Month | October 2022 | Shades of Blue

September 27, 2022
Author Sarah Archer

Blue is often described as tranquil and serene, and it's a color that is defined as a sign of stability and reliabiity.

 This month we're featuring three of our favorite shades of blue: Tide PoolBling Bling, and Starstruck!

Scroll down to see each color in action.  

Tide Pool

Tide Pool is a mesmerizing, tealish, ocean blue. Deeper than Nightfall, this color is reminiscent of the Mediterranean sea and will add a coastal feel to any room. Tide Pool looks beautiful next to almost any color in our collection. Try layering it with Simplicity for an antique look.

Bling Bling

Bling Bling is an electric, vivid blue like cobalt or ultramarine. It’s not quite a primary blue. It looks great on mid century pieces or antiques for a bohemian feel. Try pairing it with other blues like Peacoat or Whoop-de-do, or add accents in Fresh Mustard for some contrast.


Starstruck is a dark, saturated blue like lapis lazuli gemstones. It’s closest to a true navy. Starstruck combines well with Belle of the Ball and Fresh Mustard, or any of the neutral colors.

What would you paint with these beautiful blues?
