There is more to the colour of these little creatures than you would think. Smurf blue is close to cerulean blue, but is apparently a unique color which has been trademarked by Hanna-Barbera – the company responsible for creating The Smurfs.

Despite the size of Smurfs, they are able to have quite an impact on a place. In Spain, village houses are traditionally painted white; but in the village of Júzcar, all the houses were painted blue in response to being chosen as host to the premier of the 3D Smurf film.

It can also work beautifully in an adult bedroom; notice how this minimalist bedroom is so much more interesting with just one vertical stripe of colour on the wall. The beauty of this is that it is picking up the blue in the painting above the bed. Such a great colour tip: choosing a paint colour from a painting or fabric/cushion in your room will really bring a colour scheme together.

A living room can also be painted in this colour – the clever use of black and white in the furniture, curtains and accessories is what makes this room work so well.

Plascon cerulean blues:

  • Pristine Blue B4-A1-1
  • Davey Wavey B4-A1-2
  • Cullen Cove B4-A1-3
  • Surfing Sarah B4-A1-4

Also look at Monet Magic B3-A1-1, Angela Bay B3-A1-2, Blue for You B3-A1-3

If these are too bright, you can stay with the same colour codes B4 and B3, but instead of the A colours (see second code) go for B colours (see the Plascon Inspired Colour System) – same colour family, just more muted.
