Top Paint Picks for Navy Blue Walls

Yesterday I shared my Royal Blue Revelation and how I’ve been introducing this new-found hue into my home. I’m kinda psyched because not only is this color going to be an accent seen in accessories, but I plan on painting the front room a dark navy.  Yesterday I left you at the point of me knee-deep in color decisions, and today I’m sharing the final color choice, plus my Top Color Picks for Navy Blue Walls.

I’ve always had a thing for black spaces – they’re bold, dramatic, and striking – but I’m loving the navy hue just as much (and maybe even better)!  I’ve gathered some inspirational spaces that adorn the blue hue…

Crisp white with navy blue is stunning.  The white decor pops off the dark complementing color (source unknown).

A laundry room that I would never leave.  The white cabinets look amazing against the dark royal wall featured on House and Home.

Built-ins are often a shade of white (allowing them to pop off the wall), but the style displayed in this room match the walls – clever!  Love the regal, but inviting aesthetic by Ashley Whittaker.

Hello Bedroom that I would love-to-live-in!  There are so many reasons to adore this space by Brian Watford Interiors, but my favorite is the navy and white oversized nightstand, which is so sophisticated.

Thankfully I’m still in love with my taupe colored cabinets, otherwise this would be my new DIY project for summer.  Could you do navy blue cabinets in your kitchen? (source unknown)

Incredible spaces to die for, right?! So finally the time comes to reveal the final paint choice for my room.  The final color is…

Boy, do I only wish I knew photoshop better to show you how this new blue hue would look in the room.  Any volunteers to help me out? If not, no worries, it will be done soon enough (I hope)!

Do you like my color choice?  What navy blue hue is your favorite?

    I love this color. My laundry room is navy blue, but I wanted to paint it black or another color of blue. My cabinets have a hint of a grey blue tone. I now want to paint them this Benjamin Moore color Van Deusen Blue. Thanks…..

    I have just discovered your blog tonight and I know I’m going to be hooked because I have also just picked the same Van Deusen blue for the guest room! Love everything I’m seeing on your blog!
