I have a rich blue in my living room (i know, crazy!) and a very pale blue in our guest bedroom. I can check the paint cans later if you’d like.  We’re adding wainscoting to the living room to help break up the floor-to-ceiling blue, but i’m really pleased with it.

I have a blue kitchen and love it!  It is a pail blue and our kitchen cabinets are the color of the bed that you have in the picture.  It is so clean and crisp looking.  The photo here is before the granite went in (can’t believe I don’t have a more current one) 🙂 I also have the blue with cream cabinets in the utility room.  The two rooms flow together.  I have the dark bed like yours and our walls are two shades of taupe with a blue comforter and accessories.  I actually just bought a different comforter this weekend because I have had the same decor for 4 years now and need a change!  I would suggest going on to HGTV and browsing for photos that you can use as a go by. That’s what I did with the kitchen

I love your bed!  Where did you get that??

That’s funny, I love the same dark furniture, and I am looking for for a light blue/grey exactly as you describe – (see bottom corner of my paint swatches). 

What colors have you tried so far?  I’m leaning toward Behr’s – Saltwater, or Benjamin Moores Blue Ice. 

A friend of mine said Behr Misty Blue was a nice light blue, but I thought it had a pretty strong green tint to it.

With such dark furniture, I think a light grey blue would be awesome! and I LOVE grey!! Our living room is grey, but in reality it is in the blue family, beacause it is a pale grey. I can’t remeber the exact color, but it is by Behr.

I LOVE it & so does everyone who sees it!

@ejs- you’ll love the white on the walls to break it up.  I have cream and green in the living room.  It was all almond including the ceiling and crown molding before.  Major difference!

@pinkshoes: You may have my color is your swatches! It looks like it may be the 2nd one on the left. I know the first color is “subtle grey or subtle ___” something. That color was waay to light on our walls, so we went the next shade darker.

We used Sherwin Williams – Martha Stewart’s Winter’s Day (I think).  But I painted the room 4 years ago, not sure if they still sell that color.  Its a beautiful light blue-gray and I get compliments all the time on the paint color.  We also have dark furniture.
