Blue and green are two of my favorite colors.
Blue represents the sky and the sea. It’s associated with open spaces, imagination, inspiration, and sensitivity. Blue also represents meanings of depth, trust, loyalty, sincerity, wisdom, confidence, stability, faith, and intelligence. To me, the color blue brings a calmness to any space it is added to.
Blue is the color of light between violet and cyan on the visible spectrum. Some shades of blue include indigo and ultramarine.
Green often has strong representations to nature : vibrant grass, trees, plants and rainforests. Green is often described as a refreshing, hopeful, responsibility, health and tranquility. To me, the color green feels full of promise while still feeling energetic.
Green is the color between cyan and yellow on the visible spectrum. A few shades of green include sage green and emerald green.

For many people, teal symbolizes restfulness. It is composed of blues and greens. Teal has a natural dignity that is bold, but not “in your face.” It often encourages a calm, reflective mood.

Sherwin Williams Succulent is a little more of a dusty green color, but in the right lighting I think it definitely pulls to a more dark teal green color.

Sherwin Williams Smoky Blue (7604)
This gorgeous blue paint color by Sherwin Williams is a perfect addition to Laura’s dining room. It’s a perfect medium blue/gray dark smoky color.
One of the reasons that Smoky Blue works so well in this dining room is the big sliding glass doors that allow more natural light to shine in. It is a cooler color, but is perfectly warmed up with the wood tones on the floors and furniture.
Sherwin Williams Refuge (SW 6228)
Refuge is a cool teal blue with slight gray undertones giving this paint a fun side. Use it in a study, bedroom or even doors and hallway like Tasha does below.
