How To Select The Perfect Navy Paint Color:

  • A shade will look different from one room to the next due to lighting
  • Always paint a 4×4 swatch on the wall to see if it will work
  • Always paint 2-3 coats at least for a realistic swatch on the wall
  • Pop the trim in a white for a dramatic effect
  • Use accessories in the same shade to give your wall color some depth

  • I remember the original This Old House with Bob Vila — this must’ve been 1980-ish — + Bob choosing a navy blue counter top in the kitchen. He called it a neutral that goes with every other color, like a pair of blue jeans does. Yes, I love navy + have it in our home.

  • What do you think of adding navy ( which I love)
    To a room with antiqued Robbins egg already in it ( my other favorite
    Color)?

  • Navy blue is my favorite color. I regret not having the courage to paint our living room walls navy, but it’s so hard to find a good navy paint! Maybe we’ll paint the kitchen island navy.
