We bought our house two years ago and while we don't mind the builder's paint, every room has the same color. We are looking to paint some rooms step-by-step, starting with the office. I want to keep the wainscotting white, but am debating going bold with the top color. I have attached an image of the Miller paint Into the Stratosphere. It is a deep dark blue. Will I regret it? I'd love to see other ideas too.
Check out Sherwin Williams Charcoal Blue. It looks mostly navy, but for those who see color really well, it has a bit of a purple undertone...just enough to make it really interesting. We have it in a living room with a lot of white and we get lots of compliments on it.

Definitely go bold! I am planning on painting my office next weekend and I am going with Hunt Club from SW, which is a deep green. I think since you have wainscoting you can go darker up top. Plus you have a bunch of natural light!
I love that colour and we are looking at something similar for our front door.
In the new age of teleconferencing I couldn’t paint our office that colour because I would probably look like a full on zombie, but I have a sallow olive skin tone (meaning I look great when I tan but I haven’t tanned in 8 years) so anything with a green tint in it makes me turn green/yellow.
If you don’t have an issue, please disregard. I love that look and did something similar with Benjamin Moore’s Amalfi Coast with white wainscoting in the powder room at our last house.

The only thing I realized, is that the ceiling is the same color as the wall color. So before we paint the walls blue, I need to paint the ceiling a lighter color to match the cream of the window sills and wainscoting.
You inspired me to have our office painted. I called the painter today, he came out to give us a quote, and he will be here to paint on Thursday. We’re doing SW Acier, the same color as our bedroom. The room is highly visible from the road with a HUGE window, so I wanted to keep the color a little more neutral.
