From warm terracotta Cavern Clay (SW7701-2019 Color of the Year) to the new 2020 Color of the Year Naval (SW6244), a bold navy hue that promises to provide a sense of stability that previous generations enjoyed to emotional well-being for the present day chaotic and busy lifestyles. This familiar yet dynamic version of navy is reminiscent of the night sky, which people have looked to for centuries for guidance, as a muse and as a reminder to live more mindfully, according to Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin Williams
Naval is a beautiful, warm navy blue that complements popular neutrals of today. A color of confidence that brings out your best self into the new decade, Sherwin Williams believes Naval gives a nod to Art Deco influences that embodies a timeless and classic appeal for all generations.
In our modern world of design where freedom to express your personal style is in vogue, Naval fits right in with this trend as a focal wall to an entire room it brings subtle drama and confidence to an interior space. It also works well paired with other color hues, especially with Tarnished Trumpet, Midday and Kale Green (below).
Sherwin Williams describes it best; A serene shade with a hint of opulence, it works well with polished marble, gleaming metals, soft leather and sophisticated patterns. And I love their recommendation for complementary colors for Naval.
Not just for walls, Naval can be incorporated into accessories in such a way that reflects your personality!
