Paint Color of the Year
One of my favorite things to do each year is searching for the color of the year selections. It is a great way to see where our hues are taking us.
Most the time the colors are spot on, at least from my perspective, but then there are colors that I think to myself where did that come from.
This year I can easily see myself recommending some of the colors, and there are other colors that I have been trying to figure out a way to blend them into our modern farmhouse decor style.

The first color we want to share with you is Sherwin Williams color of the year 2020 Naval SW 6244.
Naval is said to be a rich navy that creates a calm and grounding environment. A tone that will warm up any room.
If you love the color, this is an excellent choice for your walls, door, cabinetry and so on. But if you are more of a neutral person, then I would recommend using it as an accent.
I think this color is telling us that interior paint colors are moving to art deco influences.
