Color Psychology: Navy Blue

Navy blue falls somewhere in the middle of classical blue and black. Because of its close ties to the latter, navy blue conveys themes such as confidence, authority, and sophisticationmuch like the color black. Navy blue, like most shades of blue, can also be linked to themes such as tranquility, stability, and creativity. 

Kitchen Inspiration in Naval

Naval nods to themes such as wellness and nature, making it the perfect paint color for your kitchen walls or cabinetry. In terms of color combinations, Sherwin-Williams recommends gold tones, such as Tarnished Trumpet SW 9026 or Midday SW 6695, which will serve to brighten up the broodiness of the navy tone. For a look that’s more down-to-earth, Sherwin-Williams recommends an earthy green, such as Kale Green SW 6460
