I’m over beige. I’m over gray. I’m over greige. Say hello to my FAVORITE neutral color – Navy Blue. I absolutely love this color, it’s become a signature for me. Navy Blue is classic with any style of decor, and I can’t think of a color off the top of my head that it doesn’t pair well with.
The Accent is Everything
Just ask any Southern girl and she’ll tell you that accents are everything. Have you ever really thought about what colors can easily go with a beautiful dark blue? Everything does. Think of your blue jeans – do you own a shirt that doesn’t work well with blue jeans? Doubt it. Let’s analyze the rainbow:
Red – oh yeah baby.
Orange – the perfect complementary color – use your color wheel and you’ll see that blue and orange were made for each other.
Yellow – absolutely. Don’t you love this? So sunny, even with dark walls.
Green – in all it’s beautiful shades. Lime green with navy? Dreamy…
Other blues – stunning monochromatic possibilities
Lavenders – gorgeous
White – stunning, just don’t let it go nautical on you.
Black – get an accent color going here or they’ll blend too much. Try gold for a high-end look.
Gray – especially a silvery gray. Heavenly.
Brown – it works with darker browns, but makes beige feel more up-to-date
I absolutely love navy blue in a home. It’s easy to incorporate and has a classic look that will match any accent colors you throw at it. Are you ready to fall in love with Navy Blue in your Home?
