In America, we just can’t help jumping the gun. We just get so excited. Halloween decorations have been on the shelves since August, 2020 automobiles started hitting the lots a full nine months before we’re due to flip our calendars, and now, just shy of October, Sherwin-Williams has announced its pick for the 2020 Color of the Year: Tada! Naval SW 6244.
This bold choice is a distinct departure from the 2019 Pantone color of the year, Living Coral, and will likely have those in favor or more masculine decor breathing a sigh of relief. Sherwin-Williams describes the color “on the horizon between ocean and evening sky rests a color of infinite calmness.” What’s not to like about that? To avoid the risk of drowning in a sea of blue, however, Sherwin Williams provided us with shades to pair it with.
Situate these combinations around finishes of polished marble, gleaming metals, and soft leather for a look of luxe, and you’ll be all set for 2020.
