Blue, blue, electric blue. That's the color of my room. (Sorry, we just can't pass up the chance to quote David Bowie lyrics.) Electric blue is a general term used to describe a vivid, mid-tone blue that can range from a Caribbean ocean tone to the color of a peacock feather.

The sample above demonstrates the different ways that paint companies interpret "electric blue" and the commonality of a strong, saturated hue. In an interview with Casa Sugar, production designer Jeremy Conway reported that Carrie's "new" blue bedroom from the Sex and the City movie was painted in a color very close to Benjamin Moore's Electric Blue. It's a cheerful, bright blue that looks great in bedrooms, bathrooms, and living rooms.
