Picking a paint color can be intimidating simply because there are so many choices. Today’s blog post will make your search for the perfect paint color a little easier.¬† One of the most classic colors you can choose if you want your home to be a serene haven is blue, particularly light blue. Blues are proven to be calming, soothing, and stress reducing.

There are hundreds of blue colors, but there are some clear standouts. Some of our favorite blue paint colors were recently featured in the Houzz article, ‘Designer Picks: 12 Soothing Light Blues.’ The article features 12 of the best light blue paint colors picked by designers across the country. Read below as we share the colors that made the list with you!

Winter Ice by Benjamin Moore

Winter Ice looks ethereal and soft in this dining room because so much natural light pours into the room. For the dining room we selected the bold mandarin-colored drapery and balanced it with the softness of the Winter Ice paint

Glass Slipper by Benjamin Moore

Glass Slipper is a lovely soft blue with gray undertones. It evokes a feeling of serenity and pairs with neutrals and bedroom linens like a dream.  It is the perfect color for a bedroom or bathroom where you are looking for a peaceful retreat.
