Color of the Year for 2020

Color of the Year for 2020

By Cotton Mayer


Sherwin-Williams just announced its Color of the Year for 2020. Drumroll, please… it’s Naval! No, not like your belly button. More like the spirit of grand, seaworthy fleets navigating the great oceans of the world. There, that’s a better image. Or, as Sherwin-Williams puts it…


“A serene shade with a hint of opulence, Naval SW 6244 works well with polished marble, gleaming metals, soft leather and sophisticated patterns. Come navigate this brave blue world and find a place to hang your stars.”


Dreamy. Watch the Color of the Year video to take it all in.



The renowned icon of paints and paint supplies also describes its Color of the Year as “a rich navy that creates a calm and grounding environment infused with quiet confidence. You may think Navy’s been done before – it’s never been done like this.”


Visit the 2020 Sherwin-Williams Color of the Year webpage to read all the rich descriptions and even learn about key color combinations. Accent your Naval with Tarnished Trumpet or Midday, maybe even a Kale Green.


There are lots of cool tools on the Sherwin-Williams website, including ColorSnap® visualizers for your desktop, iPad or smartphones. “Explore the endless possibilities of Sherwin-Williams paint. Simply upload a photo, then drag and drop a color or use the brush to virtually paint your scene.” Pretty rad, eh?
