15 months ago when I decided to go with a navy palette in our new home, it wasn’t that popular just yet. But, I knew I loved it. (Always go with what you love.) At the time, we were still trending towards the lighter blues. Navy, or dark blue, was just on the edge of being thought about in home design again. But, now, navy is hot! Let’s look at some great examples!
In Orlando Soria’s apartment on the sofa.
In Emily Henderson’s office as the backdrop for an eclectic retro space.
How about mixed with a bit of red, but not so much that it goes patriotic.
Here it is again with red.
Navy can go with many colors and is virtually treated as a neutral. It can anchor a room and bring in some sophistication, helping the room not to go too little kid on you.
Yet, it still can be used in a child’s room (in a sophisticated way). Below it’s used in a little boys’ room with green.
Or, why not pair it with pink.
It even looks great with yellow.
Of course, it looks fantastic when paired simply with white as well.
I love these cabinets in dark blue!
Why only pair it with one color?
Indeed, now I’m seeing it everywhere – from painted furniture on Craigslist to showrooms to design magazines. I’ve seen it on window treatments, pillows, painted furniture, rugs, and even stairs. Where have you seen it?
