Have you noticed that everything is navy blue these days? Navy blue has recently crept up as a new neutral. A strong yet calming color, it can be paired with a number of colors and still look just right. Use it with pink for a preppy feel or with red for a dramatic look. My favorite way to use navy, however, is in a more subtle way. Here are some lovely ways to live in navy blue.
- Painted brick. If you have a plain brick wall, consider painting it a color like navy. It’s a surprising move—but it grounds the space well and adds a calming effect that only blue can achieve. Pair it with woods and other earthy colors for a mid-century feel.
- Navy in the bedroom. Navy is a wonderful choice for a bedroom because of its peaceful quality. It also feels both masculine and feminine. Try using the color in throw pillows or blankets.
- Here is the ultimate navy room. With painted walls and fabrics, this navy makes the room feel serious without being too heavy. The addition of a zebra rug makes the space a bit more playful.
- A similar feel, this study shows how navy can be paired with contrasting colors, like salmon pink, to feel more feminine.
- My absolute favorite way to use navy is in the kitchen. I love a white kitchen, but sometimes it’s not always the most practical solution. Navy cupboards below the counter do the trick!
- A close up of the counters. The navy acts as a beautiful canvas against the brightly colored food.
- Navy transitions well into a farmhouse look., see the kitchen above with open shelving and rustic pendants.
- Navy can also be incorporated into an industrial design, with exposed piping and metallic accessories.
