The color of jeans and summer evenings, navy can instantly convey a relaxed vibe. Play up its casual side with a pile of pillows on a sofa, a bed, or a window seat. The result is a part-preppy, part-bohemian space that will put you at ease anytime.
Navy blue and white is a traditional palette that has stood the test of time. Easy to incorporate in any space of any style, it’s a pairing that designers go to again and again. Gather a collection of ceramic pieces like ginger jars and bowls on a console or a dining buffet for a scene straight out of a still life.
In a contemporary, clean space, navy can be a great partner to muted hues and modern silhouettes; it adds color without overwhelming. A deep navy sofa blends beautifully with dove grays and creams and allows the pops of orange to shine.
While navy is often thought of as a masculine color, we think it can amplify the feminine allure in any space, especially the bedroom. The navy velvet headboard adds texture and beguiling charm when paired with an oversize floral wallpaper in metallic and a mixture of unfussy printed bedding.
