Looking for the best light blue paint color? Here are all of my favorites and the undertones and details of each!
Light blue is my favorite color to paint a room in a house. It has personality but is still light, bright, and can feel neutral with the right accents.
However, there are a TON of different shades of blue! So, today I am rounding up my favorite blue paint colors that you can consider for your home.
This focus is on light pastel blue paint colors!

Light Blue Paint Colors
Here are all of my favorite light blue paint colors!
Windy Sky by Benjamin Moore (1639)
Windy sky is a gorgeous, bright and cheerful blue gray paint color. To me, it feels like aqua, all grown up and sophisticated. It feels like a sunny, cloudless day and would really make your home feel warm and inviting.
Iceberg by Benjamin Moore (2122-50)
Iceberg is a very light blue with strong gray undertones. It is almost a baby blue – but muted up with all that gray so there is nothing pastel about it at all. Iceberg is neutral enough to cover every wall in your entire home and still look interesting.
Brittany Blue by Benjamin Moore (1633)
Brittany blue is a light, crisp, cool blue gray color. It has icey undertones but is decidedly blue. It is almost a sky blue, but with those gray tones that keep it from looking too UNC-Chapel Hill.
Icy by Sherwin Williams (SW6534)
Icy is a very blue color with gray undertones. It is close to a sky blue color and one of the truest blues on this list. Pair it with creamy colors instead of whites or grays to keep it from looking too blue.
Lake Placid by Benjamin Moore (827)
Lake Placid is a bright, purple-y blue color. It is cool and icy while still maintaining a lot of blue pigment. It is a great modern take on baby blue.
Upward by Sherwin Williams (SW 6239)
Upward is a clear and pure blue color. It doesn’t get muddy tones from the gray undertones but feels less bright because of them. It is a really cheerful color and would work well on walls in many rooms.
Whispering Spring by Benjamin Moore (2136-70)
Whispering Spring is a very light and icy blue, but is surprisingly saturated considering it’s tone. In otherwise, it’s really light but still really blue – and clinging onto those gray undertones so it doesn’t feel pastel at all.
North Star by Sherwin Williams (SW 6246)
North Star is a cool, crisp blue-grey color. It has an icy appearance and pairs very nicely with a more charcoal gray.
Manor Blue by Benjamin Moore (1627)
Manor Blue is a mid-tone blue gray with violet undertones. It is a true blue shade, but definitely has gray undertones which give it a moody feeling.
Windy Blue by Sherwin Williams (SW 6240)
Windy Blue is a light but richly toned blue gray color. It has enough pigment that it really reads as blue, but the tone is muddied enough that it doesn’t feel overwhelming at all. This color is stunning in person!
Gentle Gray by Benjamin Moore (1626)
This soft blue-gray is the color of a gentle early morning fog. It is very versatile and pairs well with a wide variety of accent colors.
