Moody, energizing, calming, or cozy, nailing the perfect shade of blue for your walls can totally transform a space. Take designer Nick Olsen’s perfectly pool-like living room (pictured above), for which his decorative painter created a custom lacquer finish based on Pratt & Lambert’s March Wind. “This room took his crew weeks to make so shiny!” Seems the right blue is worth working for. We tapped a few of our favorite designers for the hues they use to create that perfect rhapsody in blue moment.
