Is Navy the New Neutral?

11385607_441957332653243_1738935545_nAccording to Miranda Cullen of Duet Design Group,, one of the designers of this year’s Designer Show House, the answer is, yes!

At this year’s Designer Show House, we have put a spin on the traditional show house format by transforming a duplex with one side designated the “color” side and one side designed primarily in a “neutral” palette. One of the colors in the color palette is Naval; a warm and rich navy color from Sherwin Williams, From the look of the design boards and the labels on the walls prior to painting, this color will feature prominently as a base color for many of the rooms and will be featured in a good amount of the artwork.

We are big fans of green, navy and chartreuse, said a representative from Knape & Zibell. They are doing the master suite on the color side. You can see some of their work at


We also talked to Megan Kane of Megan Kane Interiors, . Her team is taking on the basement on the color side.

I am in love right now with blue, purple and gray tones.
