Sherwin Williams Color of the Year 2020 - Naval SW 6244

SW-6244-Naval- Sherwin Williams Color of the Year 2020

We talked previously in the year about Behr's Color of the Year 2020 and now its Sherwin Williams!  Naval SW 6244 is a beautiful color, plain and simple.  It has such a wide range of depth and simplicity and is dark and mysterious while being beautiful and bold.  This is one of my favorite Colors of the Year, in fact, it has been the color of my own personal house for 3 years.  We have helped clients come to the decision to use Naval on many occasions because of how beautiful it is.  

Color Trends 

The idea of color and how it trends really is amazing.  I believe its a culmination of Social Media posts from Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and much more.  I like to think of it as a wildfire.  It starts somewhere and the wind blows and boom, full-blown trend.  We have been watching the trends for years and watching the ebb and flow starting with one color and then as that fades another takes its place and sometimes eventually colors come back and combos come back. Color does things for peoples emotional well-being and in this time of uncertainty, painting your walls can provide a change in scene and a change in emotional state.

What Sheen to Paint The Exterior of Your Home


Paint sheens can be difficult.  We have mentioned this in other blogs as to what sheen is for what purpose, but as we are here in the Spring of 2020, we thought we would do a refresher course.  

For typical exterior work, wood and or cementious siding, we would recommend using a satin for both body of the house and the trim of the house.  Also, when you have an accent, like the front door, this is a good sheen to use.

Happy Earth Day 2020


On this 50th anniversary of Earth Day, we make a commitment to you, and the planet, that we will strive to reduce our footprint, recycle materials, reduce waste and contribute to our beautiful planet in a positive way.

In the construction business, there can be a lot of waste, with plastic, trash from prep materials etc.  As a company we have always, not just around Earth Day, but always cared for our environment and taken precautions whenever possible to use paint that has low or no VOC (volatile organic compounds), and recycle the paper that protects the floors or the plastic that protects the fixtures and furniture.
