When I ran across Benjamin Moore’s Prussian Blue CW-625, part of the Williamsburg® Paint Color Collection, I just knew it had to be part of my Color Spotlight this month.

I’ve seen a lot of gray-blues and navy blues lately (which I love, don’t get me wrong!), so Prussian Blue felt refreshing somehow.

It was actually inspired by the rich, dark blue from the 18th Century pigment and it “mirrors the beauty of blue-and-white Chinese export porcelain popular in 18th century homes” in the words of Benjamin Moore.

I can envision Prussian Blue in a formal dining room or even in a bedroom.

Coordinating colors include:

  • Hardwood Putty
  • Finnie Gray
  • Decorator’s White
  • Blue Heather

It has a LRV of 12.17 making it a deep, rich blue indeed.

How Can I Get a Sample?

The best way to try out Sherwin Williams paint colors is to order a 12”x12” peel-and-stick sample from Samplize.

A few things I love about these true color samples:

  1. You can easily move them around from room to room.
  2. They cost MUCH less than traditional sample pots, brushes/rollers, and foam boards.
  3. They are more environmentally friendly.

Plus, they’re typically delivered in just 1-3 business days, so you don’t have to add one more errand to your list (and then go back again and again when you don’t like how they look in your space). 

What is a Color Spotlight?

Every day this month, I’m highlighting a different paint color for my readers — mainly colors I haven’t really talked about before on the blog — as a fun little project.

They’re super quick blurbs that you can read in less than five minutes (NOT long, drawn out color reviews).

This will not only expose you to a variety of fun hues you might not have considered, but it’ll also give me fresh ideas for future blog posts.

You can view the entire Color Spotlight collection here.

Happy decorating!
