Classic Blue Paint for Residential Buildings


Since classic blue is a shade that looks like the sky before it turns black, you might consider this color in a bedroom. Blue is already known for being a restful shade, and with this color's deep tone, classic blue can feel ultra-dreamy.

Blue is often a popular bathroom color because we often associate water with blue. With a bathroom painted classic blue, you'd be sure to find plenty of matching bathroom accessories and towels.
Classic blue in the living room would lend a timeless, but not stuffy, atmosphere to your surroundings. This shade works with several decor styles, from traditional to modern to eclectic.


On home exteriors, classic blue is an excellent shade for trim, especially on white or off-white houses. It's a color that can fit in with a variety of home architecture styles, and it's a welcoming color for you and your guests.
