Navy is a color with the power to take over a room and the confidence to make its presence known through bold accents. A room transformation can occur simply by painting. However, covering a wall or two with fabric or a wall-covering to add patterns, texture and dimension in this deep tone produces a distinct level of sophistication.
A vibrant element of style
Clearly, navy isn’t a shy hue. In fact, it can mix up the entire ecosystem of a room. The versatility of this tone makes it ideal as both an accent and a neutral (think blue denim). Navy pairs well with neutral palettes, spring tones, and crisp white. It brings a strong contrast to sunny yellow and orange and adds rich opulence with ruby reds and purples.
Not a hint of gloom
While many dark colors can feel a bit gloomy when used abundantly, navy blue evokes an optimistic elegance with a touch of mystery. White and bright tones have had their time in home design for a few years now, so it’s the perfect time to switch up the vibe with a moodier tone.
