Sharing is caring!

Last Updated on August 8, 2023 by lindseymahoney

Blue green paint colors are a popular choice for the interior of homes. These two colors complement each other really well when combined.

Green adds warmth to a space, while blue adds freshness to a room. Mix them together and you have a winning combination that creates a serene and harmonious atmosphere anywhere in your home.

Beautiful Blue Green Paint Colors to Try at Home

If you are looking for a bold pop of color, try adding Weekend, by Magnolia by painting a piece of furniture.

The Weekend is a beautiful dark, blue green paint color with an LRV of 7. In rooms without a lot of light, this dark blue can look almost black.

Farrow & Ball Green Blue

LRV 40

The best blue green paint colors for your home

I will admit, that I love Farrow and Ball paint colors, but I have never actually used this specific paint brand.

Because it is not sold locally and is a pricier brand, I usually have a local paint store, like Sherwin Williams, color matches the Farrow and Ball color I have chosen.

This will never be a perfect match, but it is very close.

Green Blue by Farrow and Ball is the perfect blueish-green teal color.

Like most blueish-green paint colors, the hue can change depending on the time of day or the amount of light within a room.

A space with lots of sunlight or a warmer color palette, the more green the paint color will look. The same paint color will look bluer in a space with less sunlight and a cooler color palette (see the color wheel at the bottom of the post).

Cromarty is a beautiful greenish gray that looks light blue in spaces with lots of natural sunlight. I am considering this neutral color for my guest bedroom/office walls.

Cromarty has the hue of a pale blue robins egg and is a great option for a soothing bedroom design.

Another light and airy grayish green paint colour is Silver Maple by Glidden. Blue green colors with a higher LRV have a fresh and soothing feel to them.

Behr In the Moment

LRV 30

The best blue green paint colors for your home

In the Moment was chosen as Behrs Color of the Year in 2017 and is a “restorative blue green hue” meant to soothe and relax.

With a lower LRV of 30, this paint color will reflect less light and feel like a deeper green blue than a color with a higher LRV.

If you love this color but it feels too heavy in your space, consider lightening it by 25%. This is a great option and is available at most paint stores.

Benjamin Moore Silver Crest

LRV 70

The best blue green paint colors for your home

As Benjamin Moore says, the slightest touch of green and gray adds elegance to this light blue paint color.

I have used this inviting green blue paint color in a few of our bathrooms and it gives each space a spa-like feel. Add crisp white linens and it totally completes the look!

With an LRV of 70, this is a great paint color for windowless rooms, like a bathroom. It will reflect more light to create an open and airy feel.

Sherwin Williams Sea Salt

LRV 63

The best green blue paint colours for your home - Sea Salt by Sherwin Williams

Sea Salt by Sherwin Williams is one of their more popular paint colors for interior spaces. This color can look blue, green, or even gray depending on the time of day.

DIY Mudroom Storage

Farrow & Ball Dix Blue

Farrow and Ball describe this color as a vintage blue. Like many of their blues, this paint color has a good amount of green mixed into it which gives it a warm and cozy feel.

Behr Thermal

Thermal by Behr is a deep blue-green that creates a cozy atmosphere perfect for a bedroom!

The LRV is 7, which makes this a bluish green that can look almost black when a room lacks sunlight. If you want to add some drama to a space, this is a great color to use on the walls!

More Paint Color Inspiration You Will Love

Where do blue green paint colors look best in the home?

Blue-green colors look fantastic in bathrooms because of the fresh and clean feeling it creates. This blue-green paint color also looks great as an accent on kitchen cabinets.

Wherever you decide to add this color tone, it will bring freshness to the space without feeling too cold.

What does Light Reflective Value (LRV) mean?

LRV tells us how much light a color absorbs on a scale from 0 to 100. The lower the number, the less light the color will reflect and will therefore feel darker.

The higher the LRV number, the more reflective the color, making a space feel lighter and brighter.

What is LRV and how to use it when choosing gray green paint colors

What is an undertone?

A paint undertone is the color you don’t see that can cause the main color (tone) to feel warm or cool. Warm paint colors have yellow, beige, or pink undertones. Cool paint colors have green, purple or blue undertones.

Is the blue green paint color a warm or cool color?

Blue green paint colors are considered cooler colors. Check out the color wheel below.

Knowing if a color is warm or cool is extremely helpful when choosing paint colors for your home.

If a room in your house feels very cold and uninviting, adding warmer colors to the space will help to offset the cold feeling.

Color wheel and warm and cool colors

This can be as subtle as choosing a white paint color that has warmer undertones instead of cooler undertones. Some whites pull more yellow and some that pull more blue or pink.

My living room is north-facing and doesn’t get any direct sunlight so it tends to feel a bit cold.

I chose Alabaster White by Sherwin Williams which has a yellow undertone. The space feels warmer without looking yellow.
