Sherwin Williams Forever Green paint color

Color of the Month | Sherwin Williams Anchors Aweigh

With summer in full force here in Chicagoland, I’ve been swooning over front porch decor and plants. I just had to feature this beautifully traditional front porch and gardening area! That’s why we’re featuring Sherwin Williams Anchors Aweigh (SW 9179) as our color of the month! Being bold and adding some darker colors to your home can make it feel more grounded and allows you to be more creative with other choices too. The Sherwin Williams Anchors Aweigh paint color is great for making a bold statement, without committing to “black”! Pair this with lighter neutral colors to create a feature wall, use in home accessories, or use with other equally bold colors to completely diversify a space.

Pairs Well With…

Sherwin Williams Calico (SW 0017) and Nacre (SW 6154).

We love how this dark navy paint color pairs well with other bright colors. Consider using Calico (SW 0017) alongside Anchors Aweigh to make the colors really pop! Calico is the perfect accent color to Anchors Aweigh when used with off-whites and creams. The blue tone helps liven an interior space while providing a calming feel. This combination is perfect for living rooms, dining rooms, hallways, bathrooms, or even bedrooms!

If you’re seeking a warm neutral paint color to add to Anchors Aweigh, then use Sherwin Williams Nacre (SW 6154). The combination of the Anchors Aweigh paint color and this warm cream shade brings warmth and energy to any space. This works well for living rooms, dining rooms, and even bedrooms. These are both fun colors to work into sophisticated kid’s bedrooms too!

How to use this color in your home…

Sherwin Williams Anchors Aweigh is perfect for either feature walls or bold allover wall paint. This deep navy blue color serves as a fun feature color to a room, working extremely well as a key color in accessories to lead your eyes around the space. This color works well in both light and dark rooms – watch the color come to life in sunny rooms while a more intimate interior can be achieved in naturally darker rooms. You can use Anchors Aweigh as a bold all-over wall paint to create cozy environments. 

Alternatively, it’s really easy to incorporate Sherwin Williams Anchors Aweigh into your interiors through accessories, curtains, and rugs. As the color is deep and dark, it is fantastic to use as the main focal color to otherwise neutral spaces. This is the perfect paint color for using on feature wall paneling too.

Above all, Anchors Aweigh is a great color to blend into your interiors throughout the year – it’s a deep tone that will never go out of style, and will keep the rest of your interior well grounded.
