Paint color is like a boyfriend. When you find a good one you trust and know it will never let you down you are done searching. You have found the one!

And then, like a new boyfriend, you start to use pet names or nicknames. My pet name for Benjamin Moore’s Hale Navy is dark and stormy.


I have a gallon of Benjamin Moore’s Hale Navy on hand for when I need a sample board for a navy paint color.

It’s great for rooms with little light like my home office. Dark colors do not make a room feel smaller.

More moody like my mood swings as a Realtor. ##realtorlife


I chose Hale Navy for my son’s college-age bedroom for a more mature look. Of course, with an exception of his teddy bear in his toddler Gap jammies.

I shared the importance of doing this with our kids’ keepsakes.


I used Hale Navy for his feature wall and it blends seamlessly with the  Revere Pewter walls.

Judging from my Pinterest boards, and my most popular pin ever I think there are a lot of you crushing on Hale Navy.



Our dining room is the perfect space for a moody blue.  Everything looks better in front of the navy paint.


When we built this custom library wall for our living room my husband and I both agreed it had to be painted Hale Navy. We love the feel of this room.

The two story wall that library wall is built into is also Revere Pewter.


These sconces pop against the navy paint.


Navy is a timeless color and it looks great when paired with other bold colors or white paint and accessories. It also looks great against stain too!

Tip: Home Depot color matches all Benjamin Moore paint colors

  1. The new bookshelf wall looks amazing! I think Hale Navy is like Revere Pewter…it looks so different in every light! I also love Naval which is just a bit deeper, but unless they are side-by-side, you’d never know the difference! I need a new color for Revere Pewter, even though there’s a tank of it in the basement going to waste. Suggestions?
