I've always been a blue person; if I use any colour in my life, it has to be a blue. No other colour does it for me! I'm drawn to tranquil peaceful colours, and that's why smokey gray-blues specifically have my heart. Because I'm not a fan of accent walls, I believe adding blue in smaller rooms or areas of your home can make a big impact and give you that splash of subtle colour you may be looking for. The lighter pale blues give a clean fresh feeling to a powder room or laundry room, while the rich navy tones create a wave of depth in an intimate dining room. Other great uses for the deep blues are on cabinetry (I especially love myself some navy bathroom vanities mixed with gold accents!) but if you want to play it on the safer side, a colour like Van Courtland Blue is a beautiful midtone that won't stray too far from your neutral soft gray home palette.
