This deep blue colour may appear lighter or darker depending on the lighting and what other decorative elements you pair with it in your interior decorating project.

Looking at the colour comparisons below will help give you a better idea of how Van Deusen Blue compares to two other blues.

Colour Comparisons

Hale Blue HC-154 & Kensington Blue CC-780

Van Deusen Blue Hale Navy And Kensington Blue

Compared to one of my absolute favourites, Hale Navy, Van Deusen Blue is not nearly as deep in colour.

Nor does it have quite as strong a purple undertone as that of Kensington Blue, which I recently used in my own kitchen renovation.

I updated a Burlington client’s bathroom vanity by painting it Van Deusen Blue. Click here to see how fabulous it turned out.

I have recommended Hale Navy on several occasions to clients. Here it is in a client’s rustic dining room.

I tend to recommend roughly the same 10 white paint colours to my clients. These are my best whites for trim and ceilings.

Honestly, it is not necessary to search among the hundreds of whites out there to find the best one.

You should never have to mix different whites or use a percentage of paint colour to get the right one.

I can assure you that the best colour for your project already exists.

You just need to know 5 Steps on how to choose the right paint colour the first time.

Fabulous Colour Combinations

Iron Mountain 2134-30 By Benjamin Moore

Van Deusen Blue Iron Mountain

From my Van Deusen Blue colour guide, I created this gorgeous palette.

I matched it with a fantastic tile from Walker Zanger. This Alba Decorative Field tile could be used in a mudroom for example.

Then perhaps the cabinetry is painted Ballet White.

Next, you have a bench seat that’s covered in the blue JF fabric that brings out the Van Deusen Blue colour.

Or, alternatively, you use the second fabric on the bench seat and use accents of blue in the room.

Finally, you have a dark hardwood that leads into the mudroom that is a similar shade to the Iron Mountain.

An impressive final look to your room.
