Bellbottom Blues: Searching for a BLUE for Boy Bedroom...

I am currently re-designing my kids' bedrooms as part of a home renovation, and although I would have loved a faux wood wallpaper look, as mentioned in my prior post, the weird angled walls and higher-than-anticipated estimates are pointing me in the direction of paint.  Incidentally, I asked my son, Charlie, what color he would like for his walls, and although he has always been a green guy, he unequivocally declared BLUE.  It is a bit tricky because my other son, Jack, will have a faux denim finish in the neighboring bedroom, so I would like them to look somewhat different. BUT, I really do gravitate toward the indigo/denim hues as they are warm and cozy, while also reading as a neutral backdrop.  I have selected a few grey-blue hues as they are nice and soothing for a bedroom.  However, with our often dreary Cleveland climate, I have also selected some more energizing/bold medium blues. The search is on!

1. Bluebelle 2064-60 .                             14. Colonial Blue 1677

5. Grand Rapids 835                               18. Lazy Sunday 803
6. Costa Rica Blue 2064-50                    19. Blue Nose 1678
7. Faded Denim 795                                20. Sheer Romance 837
8. Blue Bayou 801                                   21. Patriot Blue
9. Northern Air 1676                               22. Blue Suede Shoes 798
