#1 // Navy Siding with White Trim
When it comes to navy blue house colors, Hale Navy by Benjamin Moore is one of our go-to shades. It’s saturated, sophisticated, and straightforward. There are no complicated undertones, so the hue reads as a true deep navy. Since Hale Navy is such a dark color, our designers balanced the design above with light gray cultured stone. To bring in even more contrast and dimension, we used Benjamin Moore’s Chantilly Lace — one of the whitest and brightest paint colors in our palette — for the trim.
#2 // Navy Brick with Greige Trim and Wood Accents
Sherwin Williams’ Needlepoint Navy is a medium-toned shade of navy that translates well on any texture, including brick. To bring more warmth to this navy blue house design, our designers went with Sherwin Williams’ Oyster White — an off-white that leans greige — for the trim. The wood paneling and accents, along with the cultured stone and copper gutters, bring more texture and layers to the design.
#3 // Contemporary Home with Navy Vertical Board-and-Batten
Sherwin Williams’ Naval is even deeper than Hale Navy. This deep, rich blue lends itself to a daring, dramatic façade. The sharp peaks on this home make for a striking aesthetic, which is amplified by the saturated navy siding. Our designers used subtle wood accents, copper gutters, and Corten steel planters for some contrast.
#4 // Natural Stone + Navy Shake Siding with Copper Awnings
Copper is a breathtaking accompaniment for a navy blue house. For this rendering, we used Hale Navy for the shake siding, which acts as a lovely backdrop for the statement copper awnings and coordinating gutters. The design of this navy blue house is tied together by the stone cladding, which has both warm copper and cool blue tones throughout.
#5 // Navy Blue Siding Panels and Wood Siding
James Hardie’s Evening Blue is a midnight navy with a bold effect. Above, our designers enhanced the shade’s depth with the wood cladding and black exterior lighting, containers, and furniture. This siding color also pulls out the blues in the stone veneer.
#6 // Modern Navy Home with an Industrial Vibe
Benjamin Moore’s Westcott Navy made our list of the best Benjamin Moore paint colors for 2023, and it’s not hard to see why. The dark shade reads slightly more gray than it does navy, but when it’s paired with the right accents, its rich blue tones come out. Here, our designers included light gray modern stone cladding against some of the navy siding on this home to bring the blue to the forefront. The sleek wood paneling and black and iron accents lend an industrial vibe to this design.
#7 // Ranch with Navy Siding and Natural Elements
If you want to embrace nature with your exterior, you don’t necessarily need to confine your color palette to traditional earth tones. Needlepoint Navy pairs perfectly with natural elements like the cultured stone, copper gutters, and wood accents used on this ranch home.
#8 // Vertical Navy Siding with Dark Accents
If a bold design is what you’re after, James Hardie’s Evening Blue will help you get there. Pair it with the right design elements to seal the deal. Our designers know how to make a design look intentional by using interesting, functional accents. From the in-ground lighting and pavers to the staggered stairs and glass railing, this sleek design is both dynamic and daring.
We always recommend sampling and testing paint colors before committing. Factors such as natural lighting, undertones, and your property’s fixed elements will have a significant impact on how a color will appear on your exterior. Our friends at Samplize offer extra-large 9 x 14.75 inch peel-and-stick paint samples of the colors we love for exteriors. Order your ‘Real Paint, No Mess’ samples from Samplize here.
#9 // Dark Navy Stucco
While the majority of the designs on this round up showcase navy siding, this navy blue house adds stucco to the mix. Westcott Navy’s saturated hue makes a moody statement on the stucco of this home, especially against the black trim, awning, and roof. Our designers brought more of the blue tones out with the contrasting copper gutters and light fixtures, as well as with the light gray cultured stone columns surrounding the entryway.
#10 // Modern Rustic Home with Navy Siding
When it comes to modern rustic designs, we love darker paint colors. For this navy blue house, we opted for Naval on the siding. The wood columns and accents and black trim throughout the design provide contrast and texture.
#11 // Navy Siding with White Brick and Wood Shutters
For this rendering, our designers juxtaposed the depth of the Hale Navy siding with warm white brick, painted with Sherwin Williams’ Shoji White. The wood shutters and porch columns add more dimension to the façade and serve as a bridge between the dark and light exterior paint colors.
#12 // Navy Vertical Siding with Wood Paneling
On a modern farmhouse, navy siding is an wonderful, fitting paint color to elevate curb appeal. For this home, our designers used Naval siding on the bottom half paired with a lighter wood siding on the upper level. The bright white trim makes the blue pop, exuding a crisp, classic aesthetic.
