Newburg Green! (but really blue, greyish blue)

The boy said he wanted his room to be blue and turquoise (turquoise being his favorite color), so I thought navy and turquoise would be a good combination. Adding grey in as I scored a great rug and thought it would be a good neutral with the turquoise and navy. I don't love that classic navy blue so much, and knew it would end up looking too bright and generic in his room, so I wanted something a little off. My friend Amy painted a room in her house a gorgeous grayish blue, with a tint of green. Not so much green, but it's on the greener side as opposed to the reddish or royalish side. It's also a tad bit lighter than a deep, navy. Its called Newburg Green from the West Elm Benjamin Moore collection. Odd that it's called green as it is definitely more blue than green. In some photos it looks almost deep teal, in others blue. At Amy's house, it's definitely blue, but changes depending on the shadows and time of day. Gorgeous, isn't it?

Here it is up on the wall-- looks really blue here. I think it's going to be very cocoon-y!
