The Best Navy Paint Colors in Different Brands

Go bold and moody for your next room makeover! Check out the best navy paint colors from some of the most popular brands!

Two weeks ago I let you know we were going to make over our powder room and class it up a little. With bold, rich colors and high-contrast finishes in mind, we set to work creating the dream mood board for this space and slowly working our way down the to-do list.
We took down the clutter-filled cabinet and finally settled on the perfect navy paint color.

Just like our battle finding the perfect gray for Mini Me’s bedroom last year, it was quite the battle trying to find THE PERFECT navy. Not too gray. Not too dark. Not too purple.

After asking around A LOT and perusing Pinterest and online paint shops we finally selected the perfect bold and rich navy!

We went with Sherwin Williams Naval. It’s the perfect, rich navy paint color!

This room makeover isn’t quite as big of a project as some past rooms, but these little helpers have been great cheering us on when we are working on the space. I walked around the corner to see these cuties watching daddy paint the other day. Well, Little Miss was actually trying to race to stick her hands in Mini Me’s potty before I could get her because that’s her number one goal in life, but let’s just say she was watching peacefully because that’s a better story. :)

This is how the room looks right now.

Sidenote: We might be a little crazy, but decided to paint the ceiling too! Eek! We can always paint it back white if we hate it, but I don’t think we will! Was that a bad idea? Only time will tell!

On to the best navy paint colors…

So as I did research I kept coming across the same paint color names over and over again and rather than keeping that info to myself, I figured I should share it with you!

If you’re on the hunt for the perfect navy paint color but have a favorite brand, here are the most closely related paint colors to what we did in different brands.
