Bedroom Blue Color - There is a post on here that states that the color is NORMANDY. This cannot be true, I got a swatch from BM and Normandy is grayish and not blueish. I'd kill for the correct color name. thanks

Digital color can be very deceiving, if you are looking for a blue color such as the one in the picture...try Nickel 2119-50 or Oxford Gray 2128-40, both by Benjamin Moore. Hope that helps. Charmean Neithart

Another post on the site calls this color Waters Edge. Maybe that's the correct color?

In a recent Houzz piece on the color blue, the blue in this image was identified as Benjamin Moore Waters Edge 1635.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Paul Anater added this to Dare to Choose a More Colorful Neutral
The accent wall in this bedroom is a near-neutral blue. When I mentioned that a near-neutral can add the feel of a color without bringing along the weight of a color, this is what I was talking about. Blue can be a heavy color and large expanses of it on a wall make a blue room. But by choosing a near-neutral blue, this bedroom's color scheme isn't dictated by the wall color.
Becky Harris added this to 17 Ways to Bring the Gallery Look Home
Group like items together in a line. A picture rail is an easy way to make this happen.
Kelly Porter added this to How to Pick the Right Blue Paint
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. Color Pick: Water's Edge 1635 by Benjamin Moore
Becky Harris added this to 10 Ways Photos Can Make a Room
Use a picture rail. This shallow shelf keeps photographs lined up perfectly along the bottom, while heights vary.
Cate West Zahl added this to Decorate With Artful Leanings
The picture ledge here allows for these photographs to feel grounded, creating a focal point that complements the bench.
Lisa Frederick added this to So Your Style Is: Contemporary
Style Secret: Sophisticated NeutralsCream, white, tan, beige, black — these are the bedrock upon which contemporary design lies. Monochromatic and tone-on-tone schemes allow the lines and shapes within a space to take center stage. But also consider... Neutral is a pretty broad term. Choose a shade with undertones that add interest (the stony gray-blue shown here, for example). Try cream with a hint of pink, gray with a touch of green, or beige with some gold. If you want a jolt of brighter color, keep it judiciously focused: an accent wall, say, or a bold piece of furniture.How to Make Your Neutral Palette Shine | Dare To Try a More Colorful Neutral
Lawrence Karol added this to Expert Talk: Lean or Hang Artwork?
Rotate your collection. "The inspiration for the photo shelves came from an art gallery that my client had visited," says John Lum of John Lum Architecture. "They wanted a flexible system that could accommodate various sizes of photographs, since they have an extensive collection of black and white photography. The shelves allow them to rotate their collection without having to constantly patch nail holes in the walls." Lum also noted that the shelves pull out in case the homeowners decide they want to place something entirely different against the walls.
A picture ledge mounted relatively low can ground a space and help tie together simple furnishings.
