bluey green, or greeny blue, or dark dark blue?

I've got a project I'm working on, and I bought a gazillion paint samples, and have narrowed it down to three. Here they are next to the curtains:

Here they are in the natural light in the spot where (at least one of) the projects will be residing:

They are all Benjamin Moore Classic Colors.  The one on the far left is Bella Blue, the one in the  middle is Bermuda Blue, and the far right is Gentleman's Gray, which is a misnomer if I've ever heard one, as nothing about this color is remotely gray. 

I love love love the Gentleman's Gray. It is such a delicious color, all deep and moody with a hint of green.  However, I think I will have to find a different project to use it on, because its way too dark for the space and doesn't really go with the curtains.  (I'm not looking for matchy matchy exact same color as the curtains, but its reading very navy blue, and the curtains and the rest of the room have more greenish blue tones.)

That brings me to the other two, which both complement the curtains and are more in line with the color I had in mind.  I was thinking of a muddy, bluey-greeny-grayish color, and I think that the far left (Bella Blue) comes closest to what I was hoping for.  The Bermuda Blue is more on the teal side, and while its pretty, its too green. 

Whatcha think? 


  1. i like the bermuda blue the best. but i think i've been in a teal kind of mood lately. the bella blue is also a nice choice :)

  2. Bella blue. The middle one is too blue
