Light blue is easy on the eyes and good for the spirit. A calming, easy-to-love paint choice for just about any style of interior, this pale shade recalls blue skies, ocean waters, and happy days. Light blue paint can make a room feel airy, a small room appear larger and a room with limited natural light feel brighter.

The palest of blues can be used in the same way that you would use any neutral color. Light blue is an effortless alternative to white walls or as an accent wall in an all-white room since it pairs beautifully with white to create a clean, tranquil feel. If you want to create a more layered look, mix in deeper shades of blue (any hue will do).

Light blue paint is a no-brainer choice if you want to set the mood for a relaxing bathroom, an uplifting laundry room, or a serene bedroom, and it's versatile enough to work in any room in the house. Check out 10 of our favorite light blue paint colors for inspiration.
