Mountain Stream is a rich shade of blue with a hint of gray. This blue is just dark enough to create depth and dimension in your space but is still not overwhelming. This shade works well when paired with crisp whites as shown in the photo of the bathroom below. It can even add interest by using it to paint the ceiling.

This navy blue is a gorgeous choice especially if you are trying to make a bold statement in your home. It works beautifully when painted on a front door as pictured below. Colors like this are usually best in smaller doses because clearly, a little goes a long way. Another great option is to use this color on an accent wall in your home.
