Paint Color Pick: English Channel By Behr

The paint color: English Channel (PPU14-19) by Behr is a sophisticated blue with dusky plum undertones.

Why we love it: Navy blue can skew as sophomoric or sporty, but this version is cut with grey-purple that lends it richness and depth.

How to use it: In a living room or library, this hue is especially chic when the moldings and trim are painted out in the same shade so it creates a dramatic envelope.
