Top 3 Navy Paint Colors for Your Kitchen
Blue is hands down one of my favorite colors. I am drawn to it in everything from fashion to interiors and constantly find myself saying, "no, I already have too much blue" as I see yet another blue piece that I just have to have. When it comes to interiors, specifically kitchens I am all about a statement color and I think blue tones are always a good, clean, warm and inviting choice. Within the blue family I am especially intrigued with navy and love how this color can instantly change... the vibe of an entire space, especially a kitchen! To me, navy has the distinct ability to create drama while evoking feelings of elegance at the same time. Like all colors there are a LOT of variations of navy out there on the market and it can be easy to quickly become lost among the sea of options, so I thought I would share my top 3 Navy Blue colors for the kitchen with you today.Continue to 2 of 4 below.

1. Hale Navy
Let's start with Benjamin Moore's Hale Navy . This color is definitely one of the most popular and well known navy paint colors on the market. Open up any blog or peruse Pinterest and you will find space after space donning this beautiful color. To me, Hale Navy is a perfect navy. It is deep and moody, but not so dark that you loose the beauty of the blue. As seen in the photo above, the color works great on cabinetry and pairs nicely with white and brass accents.Continue to 3 of 4 below.

2. Indigo Streamer
Next up...ever heard of Valspar's Indigo Streamer? I really love this color, it has a lot more of a teal undertone to it as compared to Hale Navy, which makes it have a completely different blue vibe. The benefit to this color is it is decidedly blue and would be less likely to be confused as black in a dark room. It too, possesses a moody depth, but this color comes with just a bit more of a fun pizazz because of the teal. I feel like this color would pair nicely with lighter colored wood... tones - think natural barstools against an island donning this color.Continue to 4 of 4 below.

3. Hague Blue
And finally...This kitchen belongs to stylist Emily Henderson, and she too has a deep love for blue, especially navy! She painted some of her kitchen cabinets in Farrow and Ball's Hague Blue which is a beautiful shade of navy and one that looks striking in her kitchen. This shade of navy is really nice and works great with the brass hardware. The brass and the colorful art and foliage really pop off this pretty navy backdrop.
Well, there you have it, my top three navy blue picks for the... kitchen. Do not be afraid to incorporate a little color into your life, especially your kitchen. If you go dramatic with the cabinet color, then be prepared to let the other elements in your space, such as the countertops, backsplash and accessories be a bit more quite and reserved. By doing so your kitchen will be unique and cool as opposed to loud and overwhelming. It may seem scary, but if you choose correctly, a pop of color can go a long way to create an unforgettable space and one you will be excited to live, cook and entertain in on a daily basis!
As always if there is a navy you love please do share! I am always on the hunt for my next favorite color.
