The blue and white bedroom I designed for a Midtown apartment features a really beautiful light blue wall and ceiling paint color – which can be a really hard hue to get right! Light blues get icy quickly, but Waterfall by Behr was just refreshing enough to provide the perfect cool accent. I used this light blue paint color on the faux fireplace, on a stripe above the fireplace to create a “mantle” effect, and on the ceiling to evoke a traditional Southern haint blue porch ceiling. I paired the color with one of the best off-white colors to balance the blue with a little warmth.
