Announcing The 2020 Color Of The Year: Naval

A beach house is all about relaxing and escaping the stress of daily life. Who doesn't want a retreat that offers a restful and renewing environment! Sherman-Williams' newly announced 2020 Color Of The Year, Naval, is a beautiful way to create the perfectly de-stressing coastal retreat you want.

White walls, tiled backsplashes, floors and kitchen cabinets have been popular for a while - especially in coastal homes, but the tide is changing. Bolder, darker paint colors are coming into style, and this new one has a decidedly nautical style!

"The use of color in interior design is changing. It's not just about what a space looks like anymore, but how it makes you feel," says Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams. "People want to feel grounded and inspired to pursue their mental, physical and emotional well-being."

Designed to help you achieve a sense of calm, Naval lets you say hello to moody, restful tranquility.  It is a rich navy hue that strikes a balance between calm and confident. Aside from being a perfect color for neutral lovers who want to branch out a bit, Naval looks great with almost every color—even black. 

Sherwin-Williams recommends pairing Naval with natural materials, such as warm wood and leather tones, vibrant greenery and woven fiber rugs, to create a calming oasis in your home. We also like the pairing of metallics, warm gold or highly polished nickel, with this deep hue to create a stunningly sophisticated look.

We love this color and agree that it's not only beautifully nautical, but versatile enough to work in any room of your home - with just about any decorating style imaginable.
