One of the most popular and evergreen colour trends is blue. From pale sky to deepest indigo, this hue is constantly adopted in nearly every part of the home, in any room and in any style, navy blue is a new classic. If you’re looking for a shade that adds a dose of stylish elegance to your space, here’s how to incorporate Navy Blue into your home design.
Take inspiration from Kimberley’s dining room. The dark blue against the bright colours of the wall art gives it a fun punchy look, without making it look too cluttered. The cohesion of the navy blue wall just makes the look work.
For a more sophisticated and refined look, go for a monochrome style. Pair your navy furniture pieces such as the Highgate range with a lighter coastal blue. Decorate with cream lamps, flowers and ceramics to soften the look.
Take this beautiful living area – the navy feature wall grounds the space whilst retaining an airy modern look with the contemporary furniture pieces. The golden oak of the Parquet also pops beautifully against the navy wall.
It works beautifully with pale grey as well, another trend that has been going strong for a few years now. Used as an accent within a room, it lifts the pale grey and makes a nursery look fresh and modern.
In a master bedroom, navy blue cocoons and creates a restful environment, conducive to sleep. Paired with sleek industrial style furniture, it looks fresh and contemporary too.
Even in the living room, deep blues work beautifully. If you don’t want to commit to painting the walls, why not opt for a navy coloured sofa as the feature piece? The beautiful Evie sofa in this colour looks sophisticated and stylish.
Yes, gone are the days where everyone stuck with light neutral paint colours. While dark blue is not a colour for the faint-hearted, those who have taken the plunge rarely regret it for the transformative powers it has on a room and the items within it. Marry it with any colour combination or style and either as a room colour as an accent for a fresh look that won’t date.
