Blue. The word alone triggers different photos in the mind….of clear blue sky, sparkling blue water, bright blue eyes, and rugged blue jeans. One of my favorite colors, blue is available in so many variations that selecting a paint color can be a challenge.

Blue is forever linked to boys, especially pastel blue for baby boys. And yes, it is used extensively in boy’s bedrooms, but with a myriad of options available, no two rooms look alike. Take a look at these rooms to see what I mean.

  1. I love the picture with the blue accent wall. I’d love to do this in my son’s room. Do you have the name brand and shade colour?
