Inspiration: Glossy Blue Walls in Every Shade

Many of you, if you're doing the Cure, or even just feeling inspired by last month's Room for Color contest, may be in the throes of a painting project, considering whether to take a risk or play it safe. So for a little inspiration and encouragement (in the risk-taking direction), we pulled together a few shots of gorgeous glossy blue walls...

A high-gloss blue wall is so evocative—of the sea, of the sky, of royalty and luxury. And the reflective properties of a glossy wall can make a space feel larger. So why not paint a glossy blue wall?

Oranges, reds, and pinks look fabulous against glossy blue, as evidenced in all the images above. You can also see that any shade of blue will do, from the deep and dramatic teal of the first photo (designed by Miles Redd) to the pale sky blue of the last. Even navy looks great in glossy, a play on a traditional nautical look:

Would you consider a high-gloss blue wall for your paint job? Hello, weekend project!
