Color of the Month | Benjamin Moore Meridian Blue

Happy New Year! I’m sure many people are wishing for a brighter year ahead, and for that reason, I wanted to feature a gorgeous blue/teal color as our color of the month. Benjamin Moore Meridian Blue (761) is perfect for this! This color is both bright and calming and can last many years in any home when used correctly. This Benjamin Moore Meridian Blue paint color is fantastic for bringing spaces to life with a bold statement! Pair this with neutral colors to create a feature wall, use in home accessories or use with other bold colors.

Let’s explore this beautiful Meridian Blue paint color!

Pairs Well With…

Benjamin Moore Hollywood Gold (279) and Benjamin Moore Foggy Morning (2106-70).

We love how this vibrant Meridian Blue paint color pairs well with other equally bold colors, like Benjamin Moore Hollywood Gold (279). This combination brings warmth and playfulness to any space. This combination of paint colors works particularly well for kids’ playrooms or bedrooms! Or why not introduce these colors into a bathroom or powder room to create something unexpected?

If you’re after a fresh and crisp interior, then pair Benjamin Moore Meridian Blue with Benjamin Moore’s Foggy Morning (2106-70). While Benjamin Moore Foggy Morning is a light and neutral paint color, there is a warmth to it that will balance the Meridian Blue perfectly. The blue of Benjamin Moore Meridian Blue helps to create a calm atmosphere and provides a good feature color to work with – perfect for bedrooms or bathrooms! You could also use this color combination for living rooms and dining rooms. These are both fun colors to work into sophisticated kid’s bedrooms too!

How to use this color in your home…

Benjamin Moore Meridian Blue is the perfect paint color to use if you’re looking for a vibrant feature wall or bold all-over wall paint. The vibrancy of this color serves well when used as a feature wall color or as bright pops of color through decorative accessories to lead your eye around the space. This color also works extremely well in both light and dark rooms – watch the color come to life in sunny rooms while a more intimate interior can be achieved in naturally darker rooms.

If bold paint colors aren’t for you, it’s really easy to incorporate Benjamin Moore Meridian Blue into your interior design through accessories, curtains, and rugs. As the color is such a vibrant one, it is fantastic to use as the main focal color to otherwise neutral spaces. Pair with a yellow tone (like Benjamin Moore Hollywood Gold above) to create a truly gorgeous interior design scheme.

Benjamin Moore Meridian Blue is of course a classic blue/teal color that reminds many of us of the tropical seaside of the Maldives or Caribbean islands, reminding us that warmer and brighter months are coming. It is a great color to blend into your interiors throughout the year – it’s a calming yet energetic one that will never go out of style.
