All Hale Navy!

That is not a typo (I know there are people rolling their eyes). Rather, I’m referring to a beauuutiful navy blue color called Hale Navy by Benjamin Moore. It has made its way onto many a pin on my Pinterest boards, not to mention all over the internet, and for good reason.

Hale Navy is a great modern navy with a gray undertone, allowing it to go with pretty much any other colors. It’s also not too dark where you can’t tell if it’s black or blue – this color is definitely blue. Here are some of my favorite rooms and pieces featuring the color.

That last photo leads me to the reason for this post. I, on a whim, was at Home Depot picking up plexi for some dry erase boards I’m installing in my office (coming soon). I decided to pick up a quart of paint, so I had it color matched to Hale Navy seeing as HD doesn’t carry Benjamin Moore paint. I knew I wanted to cover up the green front door I painted a few years back (I regretted the color ever since Vito called it Eagles green!) and I thought it could also be perfect for a Craigslist bar cart I picked up for $35 that’s been waiting in the garage to be finished. Vito is blaming the entirety of our over-stuffed garage on this bar cart and a small dresser, so I thought it was finally time to remove half of that problem for him. Ha. Married life, folks!

I don’t know that the color-matched paint is 100% accurate, it looks a bit more purple than the photos above, but I think it’s all in the lighting.

    Mal, Loved Hale Blue and the way you use it. Was that the original door in your house. I can remember so many doors with three pieces of square glass but have never seen one like yours. Your house looks terrific and I hope to get to see it one day.Tell Vito
    the garage will have to do until he builds you a large shed to hold your treasures. Love the bar cart! See you in September. Love, Grams
