Undertone: Inky Navy

This rich depth of this ‘inky navy’ may appear more or less blue, depending on the lighting and what other decorative elements you pair with it in your interior decorating project.

As you can see below when we look at comparisons to other paint colours, that fact becomes more eye-opening.

Colour Comparisons

It’s only when we compare colours that we can truly understand the tones and whether they lean more one way or another on the colour spectrum.

When I do Colour Consultations in a client’s home, I am always comparing colours so they too can easily see the differences.

When I hold my large paint boards up to decorative elements such as fabrics, wallpaper or subway tile and then swap out one board with another board, it becomes much more evident as to which colour will work best.
