Color Profile

Blue Nova by Benjamin Moore exudes elegance and sophistication. Its unique blend of violet and blue creates a mesmerizing hue, which can instantly elevate any space it is used in.  

This is not your ordinary purple-blue paint color. With an LRV (Light Reflective Value) of 17, it possesses a mid-tone shade that has plenty of pigment to go bold in any space!

What sets this blue apart from its counterparts is its ability to transcend the flatness often associated with mid-tone colors. It effortlessly adds depth and dimension to any space, making it perfect for creating a bold statement wall or accent piece. Whether used in a modern living room or a traditional bedroom, Blue Nova brings a sense of freshness and sophistication that few other colors can achieve.

Further, this blue tone has the remarkable ability to interact with light and subtly change its appearance throughout the day.

  • Under natural daylight, it takes on a vibrant blue hue that energizes the room and sparks creativity.  

  • As dusk settles in, it transforms into a serene purple tone that promotes relaxation and tranquility.  

This chameleon-like quality ensures that every time you enter your space, you are greeted with an entirely new experience. Amazing!

Incorporating Blue Nova Into Your Space

Whether you choose to use it as an accent color or as the main focal point, Blue Nova adds a touch of sophistication that is sure to leave a lasting impression. Let’s see how!


With a suitable design scheme, this purple-blue can be beautiful on kitchen cabinets. Instead of muted quartz or marble countertops, this shade will look best with bright white countertops or a white subway tile backsplash.  


Whether you have a small powder room or a spacious master bath, this fun blue hue can create an atmosphere that promotes relaxation and rejuvenation.

To create a cohesive look, pair this color with other cool tones such as whites, grays, or even soft greens. This combination will enhance the sense of tranquility in the space while giving it a modern and sophisticated feel.  

Living Room

Painting one wall with this bold shade will create a focal point and add depth to the space.  

To balance out the intensity of this color, pair it with neutral furniture and accessories in shades of white or gray. This will help maintain a harmonious balance within the room.


This violet-blue can instantly elevate any space, whether you're looking to accent built-in bookcases or accent walls. The versatility of Blue Nova allows it to seamlessly blend with different design styles, from modern and contemporary to traditional and eclectic.

  • Painting the back panel of your bookcase built-ins in this stunning shade will make your books and decorative objects pop against the deep blue backdrop.

  • Whether in a living room, bedroom, or dining area, a vibrant blue accent wall makes a powerful design statement. Experiment with different textures like shiplap or wallpaper for added dimension.

  • Painting interior window frames, door trim, or architectural accents in Blue Nova can draw attention to these elements while adding depth and dimension to the overall design concept.  

Front Door

While this hue may be too bold to paint your home’s entire exterior, it can be striking when used as a front door color that makes a statement.  

Note: When in bright sunshine, this shade trends toward being quite vibrant, so make sure that’s what you want for your home!
