Navy may seem a daring choice for an interior– and it is! But its associations with stability and calm make this deep, dependable blue a sophisticated favourite. Navy pairs especially well with classic neutrals such as beiges, creams and browns: So if you love the mystery of a stormy sea or a midnight sky, don’t be afraid to evoke it in your décor. Navy can be a compelling element of a cosy, inviting space.
Deeper shades of blue can be cleverly used to add drama and sophistication to any space. It looks particularly good as paired with strategic lighting, and dark wooden flooring. A single splash of colour can make a big impact in a bright, light space – like a navy kitchen island in a white or ivory kitchen. For a modern look, use black accents (light fixtures, hardware, or accessories).
If you’re drawn to navy but fear it could be too dark or overpowering in your space, consider limiting it to a single feature – a sofa, a kitchen bureau, bedspread or statement wall – while exploring this palette’s neutral tones for your walls and flooring.
