As we approach a New Year, Best Painting Inc., would like to announce the Color of the Year, or rather Colors of the Year.
Furthermore, we’d like to elaborate on what these Colors mean to us.
Starting with Sherwin Williams Color of the Year, which is ‘Naval SW 6244’, Similar to PPG’s Color of the Year which is ‘Navy Chinese Porcelain’. Both colors represent Navy in different tones.
Sherwin Williams Naval Color is a deep and sophisticated Navy blue as shown here
Light Tans and greys accentuate the blue in this color. Primarily Naval is used for accent walls, front doors and powder bathrooms. But that is not the only place to use Naval. It’s also gorgeous on cabinets and styled properly can be nice to use on all walls in an office, dining room or bedroom.
Like Naval, PPG’s Navy Chinese Porcelain is a darker, shaded, orchid blue with a violet undertone. When we think of Navy Chinese Porcelain our minds may go to antiques like so
However, Chinese Porcelain is just as elegant for our home as it is on antiques!
Here is a great example of how this Navy can class up your home!
Now that we have the two Navy Colors of the year, look into what the other Painting Companies are talking about. For example, we have Behr’s Color of the year ‘Back to Nature-S340-4’. Back to Nature is a revitalizing green hue that engages our nature and outdoors side, this color pairs well with other greens and plant-like shades. This is perfect for a calm yet vibrant home as seen here
Again with the theme of calming colors, we have Dunn Edwards Color of the Year ‘Minty Fresh (DE5687)’
Minty Fresh is a calm, clean and crisp high point pastel that can coincide with our nature colors and really bring some brightness to your home for a Fresh new beginning.
Lastly, I’d like to appreciate Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year, ‘First Light 2101-10’. This color is a soft, airy pink that flatters any living space. The great thing about First Light is that it is an alternative to white and goes well with other calming colors. Here is a representation of First light below
