Sherwin-Williams announced its 2020 Color of the Year, and it’s a choice that can be both approachable and awe-inspiring. Naval is a deep twist on classic navy blue, and it was chosen in part for its references to the sea and the night sky. Naval is simultaneously luxurious and versatile, and would enhance a formal dining room as much as a zen yoga studio. Wadden calls the blue a “new neutral,” suggesting that tones outside of the typical white, gray, or beige can be used to a similarly soothing effect. Furthermore, the color’s connotations pushed it to the top of the brand’s pile of contenders. Shades of green aren’t the only way to invoke the natural world and wellness in an interior. Sherwin-Williams’ take on navy blue is perhaps a more subtle and nuanced way to do so—and of course the nautical-inflected hue has long blended seamlessly into interiors both traditional and less so.
You can start by painting a full wall in naval, that the result will be outstanding, making a statement of a strong personality, that is not afraid to try something out of the ordinary. Someone that likes to be bold and is not afraid of bold home interior decor.
