Ceiling Paint Color

We chose a dark navy blue for the ceiling of Oliver’s big boy room - Benjamin Moore's Van Duesing Blue. It’s a lovely dark navy with slightly green undertones and looks great with the Weston Flax Yellow in person. I’m so excited to put it up on the ceiling. We’re planning on painting and then putting up crisp white crown molding. Hopefully it will make the ceiling look higher and the room bigger (since dark recedes).

The yellow feels a lot brighter in real life than it does in the swatch, so in person the colors look really good together. The navy is really dark but this room gets a ton of light all day long. The colors look good together throughout the day in different lights. It's a big change but I think it will make the room feel a lot more fun and masculine.

My only concern is that once the ceiling is navy blue - will the white ceiling fan be too white against a navy blue backdrop? We can always replace the fan down the line or paint the fan blades a darker color (like gray?), though I think we need to see the final result before moving forward.
