For the Love of Color: Navy

I’m not sure why it is, but as of late I’ve been totally taken with anything navy. So much so, that this past week I spray painted my outdoor bistro set the most gorgeous shade of navy. It turned out beautifully, giving me just the look I wanted. In the past, navy was never really a color that came to mind when decorating. However, lately I’ve been introducing touches of it in my spaces and loving the results.

As amazing as it could look, I’m not the type to paint an entire room navy. However, using it as an accent color can be brilliant. I especially love the space in the photo above. In this room, the architecture is the star. The bursts of navy blue in the pillows not only make the space look inviting, but give it a contemporary edge. I think the reason I’m loving navy so much is that depending on how it’s used, it can feel traditional, regal, or even modern.

Thankfully, I’m not the only one loving navy these days. I’ve been seeing more and more accessories and furnishings in this fabulous shade at so many of my favorite stores. Today, I’ve pulled together a few pieces to inspire you to give navy a try in your own space. What do you think? Have you been bit by the navy bug?

Happy Decorating!
