It’s no secret we love our pop of navy blue, and today we’re rounding up the best navy paint colors for your next home project! The navy shade is both timeless and trendy and works in both masculine and feminine spaces. So, whether you’re considering navy for your exterior, cabinetry, or even as an accent wall, this roundup of shades will hopefully make your decision a lot easier.
Talk about a show-stopping exterior paint choice! To capture the essence of living lakeside, our clients opted to use Hale Navy as the exterior paint color at the #LakeRileyRebuild. This shade is a timeless classic shade of navy and offers a deeply saturated color reminiscent of the sea (or, in this case, lake)!
If you’re looking for a navy you can trust to hold timeless value in your home, look no further than the Sherwin Williams 2020 color of the year: Naval. This shade is a “…rich navy that creates a calm and grounding environment infused with quiet confidence.” (Sherwin-Williams). We used Naval in the boy’s bathroom at the #CountrysideCustom for a sophisticated and masculine pop of color on the cabinetry.
If you’re looking for a more toned back navy shade, we love Benjamin Moore’s Westcott Navy. This muted navy shade acts as a beautiful backdrop for art and shelving, as well as a great pop of color on cabinetry. It exudes sophistication, and this blue is not in your face but more of an afterthought.
Hague Blue by Farrow & Ball is a new favorite for us! We’re so excited to see it in action at the #UptonUpdate remodel, as we plan to use it on the kitchen island, primary bath cabinetry, and in the mudroom. This shade is a strong navy blue and works beautifully as an accent color on the walls or as a pop of color on cabinetry.
Benjamin Moore’s Blue Note offers a bold and saturated navy blue color payoff. This striking hue of navy pairs beautifully with classic and neutral colors alike. This shade is also known to respond beautifully to the change of light throughout the day.
