Struggling to Pick the Perfect Paint Color?

Picking a paint color can be very overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be! I’ve created a guide to help you pick the perfect paint color. 

Gentleman’s Gray

2062-20 / LRV: 5.37

Gentleman’s Gray is an elegant deep blue that leans toward classic navy. I think it has undertones of green, but it really depends on the lighting. 

Gentleman’s Gray pairs well with:

Danville Tan HC-91
Gray Mirage 2142-50
Pike's Peak Gray 2127-50

Hale Navy

HC-154 / LRV: 6.3

I love the mystery of this color. Sometimes it looks blue, and sometimes it looks black. You have to be careful with this color in small spaces because it can make a room look smaller than it already is. Regardless, if you’re looking for a deep navy, this is by far one of the most popular.

Hale Navy pairs well with:

Edgecomb Gray HC-173
White Dove OC-17
Sea Haze 2137-40

Hudson Bay

1680 / LRV: 7.91

Hudson Bay is visually similar to Van Deusen Blue. It’s a softer blue, but still dark. I think it has a hint of purple undertones. 

Hudson Bay pairs well with:

Thundercloud Gray 2124-40
Genesis White 2134-70
Golden Garden 221

Old Navy

2063-10 / LRV: 3.11

Old Navy is more of a royal blue. While it’s still a very dark color, it doesn’t have as much black in it as Hale Navy does. The cobalt blue really pops when it’s paired with a bright white. 

Old Navy pairs well with:

Rosemary Sprig 2144-30
Solitude AF-545

Have you heard about Samplize? 

If you’re trying to pick paint colors, you’ll most likely want to sample the color first. Samplize offers peel and stick samples. These samples are easy, MESS-FREE, and affordable. 

A few reasons that I love Samplize:

  • You can order online, and samples are delivered right to your doorstep in 1 day! 
  • The samples are much more cost-effective. You won’t have to purchase a paint sample, poster boards, AND brushes. You’ll save yourself time/energy and money!
  • No more messy application with wasted paint or leftover paint cans!
  • Buy 8 products, get 2 for free!!

Polo Blue

2062-10 / LRV: 3.61

Visually similar to hale navy. It doesn’t have quite as much blue in it as old navy does. If you’re looking for a color that’s in between hale navy and old navy, this would be the best option. 

Polo Blue pairs well with: 

Stardust 2108-40
Drummond Blue DC-32

Van Deusen Blue

HC-156 / LRV: 10.04

Van Deusen Blue is the lightest blue out of the ones I’ve listed. It’s less of a royal blue and more muted. I think there’s a nice mix of blue and gray, without being too dark.

  1. this is really helpful. I am painting my sons room Old Navy because I want a nautical feel but also a color that can grow with them. What white trim would you pair with Old Navy? I know this mentioned bright white – would you use Chantilly Lace or is this too bright? There is tons of trim in this room so the white will be important. Please lmk if you get a chance. thanks.

    1. Hi Mar! Chantilly Lace is definitely a bright white, but I personally like using a bright white trim with a dark wall color because it makes the wall color really pop. Chantilly Lace also has a hint of gray undertones, which would tie in well with Old Navy. If you’re concerned about it being too bright though, here are a few other options… White Dove, Simply White, and Decorator’s White. I’d really suggest you get samples and see what looks best in your lighting.
