Striped in a flat finish on the ceiling, this cerulean blue brightens the entire room." —Jenny Wolf, SL Designer Network Member, New York City, formerly from New Orleans and coastal South Carolina; jennywolfinteriors.com
"This color reminds me of tranquil ocean water. l use it in an eggshell finish on walls, the ceiling, and trim." —Paige Schnell, SL Designer Network Member Rosemary Beach, Florida; traceryinteriors.com
