Which paint color with navy?
April 5, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We are picking out our basement paint colors for our new construction home and need some help as DH and I are not agreeing! We have a dark camel leather sofa. We chose SW naval as our navy color. http://www.sherwin-williams.com/homeowners/color/find-and-explore-colors/paint-colors-by-family/SW6244-naval/

We are thinking of doing one wall and the center island (which divides the room and will have a see-through fire place and our TV mounted) in the naval. The other walls we are trying to choose between SW antique white:http://www.sherwin-williams.com/homeowners/color/find-and-explore-colors/paint-colors-by-family/SW6119-antique-white/

or SW Ramie: http://www.sherwin-williams.com/homeowners/color/find-and-explore-colors/paint-colors-by-family/SW6156-ramie/

Thoughts? TIA for any advice!

I love the naval! That's a beautiful blue. I think it will depend on how much light you get in the basement. If the light is plentiful the navy blue should be fine and I prefer the antique white to the ramie.

I love the antique white but why not add a splash of flare in there with a hint of fresh orange? I know it's a love it or hate it color but its a great alternative to the usual expected red. Not saying red is bad, just sometimes overdone with navy.

I don't think the orange would look great with the camel couch. But maybe it would. I do love orange. But I'm pretty sure we're not that bold to paint our walls navy+orange! :) I'm planning on adding some pops of color through accessories.

Thanks for both of your input! My vote is for the antique white so you're helping my cause!
