Color Crush: Washington Blue CW-630

March 2, 2019

Hey everyone!  This Benjamin Moore’s paint color Washington Blue is from their Williamsburg Collection. This navy is right now one of Ben Moore’s best selling blues:

I love it. A true blue beautiful navy!

I was working on finding a paint color for a client to update and paint her bath cabinet. She was not as crazy about the Hale Navy as I am, !,  so I suggested a few other navy blues:


From left to right : Hale Navy, Newburyport Blue, Van Deusen Blue and Washington Blue. If you compare the Hale Navy with the Washington Blue:

You can see the Hale Navy looks darker and less blue than the Washington Blue. Which do you prefer? Like other navy blues, it works well with white, gray, turquoise and many other colors as well as stained trim.

What I also love about this navy is that it gives a  less serious, more playful look.  It does not look as nautical as Newburyport blue, just a deep, pretty blue. I would not suggest for exteriors, except for a front door, that would look fabulous!

Washington Blue may be one of my top favorite paint colors for the new home. I would LOVE a navy and white bath. Or maybe a navy and white office:

Or maybe a focal wall behind the bed. Decisions, decisions. I love navy blue. How about you?

Be sure to check out the paint colors in the Ben Moore Williamsburg collection if you are looking for a new paint color.  Beautiful, rich colors!

Have a great weekend everyone!



  1. Oooh, thanks for this. I’m planning for our retirement home where we will be moving in June, and I want to bring touches of navy throughout. I like this slightly more blue version of Hale Navy, which can sometimes read a little too black.

    Navy sofa, navy office wall, navy in my new laundry room. Hmmmm, the possibilities are ripe!

  2. Hi Kelly,
    What do you think of BM Stunning Navy paint color? We have this color in our dining room with BM Carlisle Cream? Thoughts?

  3. If you do not suggest Washington blue for an exterior paint color, which deep blue do you suggest? We have a certain teed reshaun shake brown color roof.

    • Hi Barbara,
      I just think the Washington Blue is a bit too bright for an all over exterior color. There are so many other blues. If you would like to work together, send me an email and I will explain in more details of my online color consulting. I would need photos and a brief description email from you to get started. Let me know if you have other questions.
      Thank you for writing!
