Looking for the perfect dark blue paint color? These are my favorite dark blue gray paint colors for a deep but muted paint color!
Dark paint colors are really having a moment and one of my favorite dark paint colors is blue!
There are a lot of shades of blue, but I really love a blue-gray for paint. The gray undertones give colors a muted feel, so they don’t feel overwhelmingly bright.
These are my favorite dark blue-gray paint colors, perfect for adding bold color and a moody vibe to any room in your home!
Dark Blue-Gray Paint Colors
Hale Navy by Benjamin Moore (HC-154)
Hale Navy is a deeply saturated navy blue. Using this color will bring a ton of impact into your space!
It might not be the color for all of the walls in your home, but using it selectively can be really beautiful. The gray undertones keep this blue from looking too much like a military uniform.
Stained Glass by Benjamin Moore (CSP-685)
Stained Glass is really a dark teal color, but it has been muted by gray undertones. While teal can be really overwhelming to imagine on the walls, the muddiness of Stained Glass makes it really cozy and comfortable, especially in a light and bright space.
Blue Note by Benjamin Moore (2129-30)
Blue Note is a deep navy with an almost sea-like aesthetic. There feels like there are green tones deep within the muted blue. It is a pure, deep blue color, but there are definite gray undertones keeping it from feeling too blue.
New Providence Navy by Benjamin Moore (1651)
In contrast, you can see the real teal and green undertones in New Providence Navy.
Polo Blue by Benjamin Moore (2062-10)
Polo Blue is a rich, masculine, true navy color. It is very dark and moody and will make a big impact in any space. It’s also a gorgeous choice for exterior siding for a home.
Gentleman’s Gray by Benjamin Moore (2062-20)
Gentleman’s gray is really an odd name for this color because it’s not nearly as gray as it is a deep teal. However, the gentleman’s bit is right on key – this would be gorgeous in a study, library, or man cave paired with masculine accessories.
