Sorry, we don't keep track of our colors. Each project is unique. We test multiple samples and pick out the best color based on the light quality and character of each individual site.
The names are arbitrary, but you can get any color you want from Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore. Also, be very careful when looking at colors online, for instance, this blue is actually slightly green in person, and your monitor might have a different color balance than the actual photo, not to mention, the photographer might have used a lens filter or altered the light levels in Photoshop.
