Blue-Little Boy, Slate, or Gray?

Are you a 'blue' person?  What kind of blue do you like?  Better yet what kind of blue do you avoid?

I have helped many color consulting clients with finding the 'perfect' blue paint color for their space.  There are fine tuning questions that pin point what makes a blue perfect for the space they are trying to personalize.

Sometimes is it soft and airy, like Benjamin Moore's 2014 Color of the Year, Breath of Fresh Air.

Most times it needs to have a gray tone to it to keep it looking soft but grown up.

Often the more depth it has the richer and cozier it feels in a space.
