Every year, Sherwin Williams releases a "color of the year" hoping to inspire people to use it all around their homes. The color is meant to inspire new trends and bring an updated style and color to homes. The color this year is a beautiful navy blue called, "Naval". They chose it for several reasons explained on their website, "Naval fuses the striking and bold opulence of Art Deco with the awe-inspiring power of nature; from the infinite night sky to the mysterious depths of the sea – bringing navy out of its comfort zone to usher in an empowering new year and fresh decade of change. This deep shade evokes a prominent sense of confidence that fuses timeless color with a fresh mix of natural materials and textures that bring navy blue into a new era."

As we step into 2020 we want to inspire and create beauty, giving homage to our history while bringing all the modern advances and technologies we have created in the last 100 years. We made this article to help guide you into using the color in beautiful ways around your home.

1. Furniture

The first way to use this color is in your larger pieces of furniture. Although not considered often, a navy blue couch can be both beautiful and functional in a living room. The dark fabric hides stains well and also helps stress pops of color like cream, gold or white. If you don't want a blue sofa, consider side chairs or poufs to add some of this beautiful color to your home.

2. Cabinets

When someone told me about the navy cabinet trend, I thought they were crazy. At first thought, it seems like this would make your kitchen feel very dark. However, with the accent of light countertops and bright gold or silver hardware, navy cabinets can bring a whole new look to your kitchen. It elevates the space in a very classy and elegant way.

3. Accent Walls

Navy blue is a rich color; it's deep and dark, but also mysterious and beautiful. Some people might not be up for painting an entire room such a bold color, but this navy works incredibly well as an accent color in a dining room, living room, bathroom or bedroom. Try using "Naval" behind your bed frame or on the top half of your dining room walls. Since it is a dark color, it can make everything feel much cozier.

4. Pillows

This is the perfect way to include "Naval" in a more subtle way in your home. Pillows are the perfect accessory to help add the pop of color you need to your entry, living, or bedroom. Pillows are casual and not too bold; they are also much more returnable if you change your mind!

5. Tile

One of the last yet still brilliant ways to include the color of the year in your home is by incorporating it in your tile selections. Navy would go great as a backsplash in the kitchen with white or grey cabinets. We have also seen it beautifully installed into bathrooms and showers.

If you like the color, there are always new and clever ways to include it in your household.
