Using the 2020 Color of the Year

Every year, household paint giant Sherwin-Williams chooses a color of the year. For 2020, they’ve selected Naval SW 6244. The rich navy color with Art Deco influences creates a calming space wherever you use it.
In décor, the color blends perfectly with natural elements like live greenery and stonework. It also adds a serene quality to walls, floor coverings, furniture, and even artwork.
We love this timeless color and want to make it easy to incorporate it into your décor and framing treatments. So, we’ve searched our wide selection of mat boards for a close approximation. Bainbridge Alphamat Artcare Indigo Mat Board 8526 is our darkest blue mat and features a textured white core, Artcare technology for preservation, and PrecisionCut™ edges for museum-quality results.
Pair it with white wood picture frames for an upscale nautical look, or graphite for an elegant twist. It also perfectly complements light-hued wood frames, for a close-to-nature feel. Gold wood frames give a playful nod to the color’s Jazz Age inspiration.
Inspired by this gorgeous color? Buy a can of the Sherwin-Williams paint and let your creativity run wild. For help throughout your DIY framing project, get paired with a knowledgeable expert through our Art Assistant™ program.
