Hale Navy is my Hail Mary for interior paint. The first time I went to Home Depot (where the paint department color matches Benjamin Moore colors), I asked for a gallon of Hail Mary in Eggshell. After multiple attempts to find this misnamed paint, me and the Home Depot staff member figured it out. We had a good life about a Hail Mary forward pass in football. I nodded like I knew what that meant.
For my Revere Pewter walls, I think they said their own little prayer when a gallon of Hale Navy made an appearance. The bold color is addictive and there’s a part of me that wants to keep painting past the niches and nooks that need a little boost.. a navy boost.
I shared these niches and nooks that got a Hale Navy color block boost.
The Hale Navy color definitely elevated their game.
Color block is also addictive. I walk around the main level of what I call our brownstone in the burbs and look for corners and niches to paint with this habit-forming paint project.
I got my eye on this awkward space in our living room. There’s a bench in the space because I needed a place to stash it.
The voices in my head suggested I create a faux fireplace, but we have a long-term plan for a fireplace for the wall between the living and family room (the wall behind the hutch).
Do any of you feel like sometimes just taking a photo of a room gives you a new perspective. Like, why are the chairs so far from the chaise? Or that coffee table is too small for that space.
Here is a close up of the awkward space in our living room. I got my eye on you!
And I got my eye on these ceiling insets in the adjacent hallway.
PS Same paint color (Revere Pewter). Same photographer. #lighting
