Sherwin Williams Forever Green paint color

Color of the Month | Benjamin Moore Yankees Navy

Hello October! The transition from summer to fall, and then into winter is well underway and we wanted to feature a deep and warming color. That’s why we’re featuring Benjamin Moore Yankees Navy (SC-51) as our color of the month! Aside from being an official Yankees color, this deep navy blue paint color is perfect for using throughout the home and brings a warmth to the classic navy. Pair this with neutral colors to create a feature wall, use in home accessories, or use with other equally bold colors to create a “wow” factor.

Pairs Well With…

Sherwin Williams Eider White (SW 7014) and Aqua-Sphere (SW 7613).

We love how this warming navy paint color pairs with more muted and neutral tones to let the Yankees Navy do all the talking! For anyone looking to create a calming and relaxing atmosphere, pair Benjamin Moore Yankees Navy with Sherwin Williams Aqua-Sphere (SW 7613). The lighter shade of Aqua-Sphere balances out the darkness making it the perfect combination throughout the home. 

If you’re looking for a warm color palette that largely focuses around Yankees Navy, then use Sherwin Williams Eider White (SW 7014). The combination of the navy paint color and this warm off-white shade brings warmth to any space. This works well for living rooms, dining rooms and even bedrooms. You can even work all of these colors into into sophisticated kid’s bedrooms or playrooms too!

How to use this color in your home…

Benjamin Moore Yankees Navy is perfect for either feature walls or bold allover wall paint. You can even go one step further and paint all the surfaces in a small room to really make a statement, this is particularly well received in home offices or library rooms. This warm and rich navy color works well as a fun feature wall while also being picked up in the accessories of the room too. You can use this paint color in both north and south facing rooms – watch the color come to life in sunny rooms while a more intimate interior can be achieved in naturally darker rooms.

Alternatively, it’s really easy to incorporate Benjamin Moore Yankees Navy into your spaces through accessories, curtains, and rugs. As the color is a dark and vibrant one, it is fantastic to use as the main focal color to otherwise neutral spaces.

Aside from painting the walls of your home, Benjamin Moore Yankees Navy is a great color to consider for your kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanity units. It would make a great feature of your kitchen island when paired with a more neutral run of main cabinets, and work amazingly in a powder room environment with gold hardware!

Benjamin Moore Yankees Navy is a true classic that will never go out of style.
