I am seeing a lot of deep yet vibrant blues popping up these days on furniture specifically.  In our vintage designer collection we have a federal blue color that is very popular with customers.  We are also selling a lot of Napoleonic Blue Chalk paint in the shop.


These colors are similar to Benjamin Moore Hale Navy which is very popular right now.

In our Chalk Paint line by Annie Sloan we have Napoleonic Blue which is VERY popular right now.  Folks have been mixing it and tweaking the color to make it a bit deeper.  Here is an image from Pinterest where someone used the new Annie Sloan Black wax over Napoleonic Blue.


Here is another example of Napoleonic Blue + dark wax.


This is a mix of Napoleonic Blue Chalk Paint + Barcelona Orange to get a deeper navy.


And to finish up this post lets take a look at the awesome painted piano in Napoleonic Blue chalk paint!


Are you loving blue these days too?  We are dying to see your before + after pictures.  You can tag us (@stylishpatina or #stylishpatina) on Instagram and also submit before + afters on the blog.
