Color Crush: Van Deusen Blue

September 1, 2018

Definitely one of my favorite blues. This grayish blue paint color is from the Benjamin Moore Historical Collection and has been a preferred blue for many homeowners over the years.

I love seeing it used in a semi-gloss finish on cabinets:

This color is a very popular color choice for cabinets in both kitchen and baths: (Do you see the difference in the color with different lighting? That is why it is so important for you to sample paint colors in your home with your lighting.)

The reason this color was called to my attention again recently  was from an online exterior color consultation. The client knew he wanted a dark blue with with white trim. My first color selection I offered him was between Hale Navy HC- 154 or Van Deusen Blue HC-156. The Van Deusen is a brighter, cleaner blue than the almost black Hale Navy:

Both so beautiful! Van Deusen Blue gives more of a ‘pop’ than the more serious Hale Navy:

This color is also a winner for a front door color with gray, white or beige painted exteriors:

Or, look how nice it looks as an interior door color:

For interiors, Van Deusen Blue is beautiful in any room with white trim:
