Gray blue. Deep grayish blues work very well in contemporary spaces. This is a nice alternative to pure grays, which can sometimes look dull. You may find that just painting one accent wall with this color is enough to add dimension to your room without making it feel closed in.

Silver blue. Lighter silvery blues make an interesting neutral color. These tones work very much like beiges and tans because you can bring in any other color to the space and make it work. These lighter blues won't limit you, but they do bring a cool feeling to a space.
