My color was navy.  How did I add navy to my home?  And, how’d I like it?

First, was the art project (décor).  I do like it, though the color of the matting is a little too purple toned (indigo) for what I’m ulitimately doing, so I’ll probably eventually change it out.  Otherwise, really nice and it was free!  It’s in the half bath, so I don’t really mind it for now.


Second, I had our family room ceiling painted in Loyal Blue by Sherwin Williams!  Looks awesome.  We love it!


Third, I wanted to add navy curtains in the family room.  FAIL.  Having striped curtains made was beyond my budget.  And, I never found affordable fabric (substitute for the stripes) that I truly loved in the room.  So, decided to make gray and white striped curtains for the room out of shower curtains!  Will post on that some day soon.

However, I do have navy in the form of fabric on those chevron pillows that you see there that I added to the room, from the master bedroom at our old house.


Did I like the navy overall?

I liked it so much I am adding more!    I painted our yellow faux bamboo dining chairs blue!  Yep, I’m painting in the garage and nope, the blue is not as dark as it looks.   The chairs will go in the breakfast room.


A bit of a better shot of the color and a sneak peek.  Ignore the items on the table.  We’re putting up custom curtain rods and those are the pieces…


And, that’s a sneak peek at our new breakfast room rug.
