What color matches with dark blue for two tone walls?


I have our whole bedroom painted in a "marine blue" similar to this color swatch http://gouldsberryscabinet.com/Formi...ine%20Blue.jpg well its a little too much all as one... I wanted to divide the room up into 36" high section on the bottom with chair rail (in white glossy) and baseboard (white glossy also) but I can not figure out a good color to go on top...... this is a master bedroom and its a large room about 20x18 ft any suggestions? the ceiling is flat ceiling white, and the carpet is an off white (very slightly tan) I dont think I want plain white on the upper portion, I want the chair rail and crown molding to stand out suggestions? (this is an 8' high ceiling also, so 2/3rds the room is going to be the top color, so want it to be a lighter color, and light blues dont work for me... seems baby like)

I would recommend an ivory/cream color - it will balance out the deep blue, yet provide enough contrast with the white woodwork. The result will be a "softened" nautical color scheme.

Hope this helps,

I agree with the above post. I would do chair rail and below glossy white, blue above chair rail.

Use beige or vanilla creamy shades because your blue is too dark and too bold to use anything else.
