Trends: Navy Blue

Blue is my favorite color, specifically a watery, aqua blue. But recently the richness of navy has caught my attention.

Navy everywhere! Wall color, clothing, fabric, accessories, you name it. Shelter mags, show houses and bloggies alike are using navy. Illustration of point,

  • I have been getting into the navy as well.. especially paired up with some crisp white. I recently purchased the cutest navy dray with a pattern made from white dots. I like the darker color between your two options. Happy painting :)

  • Ah! So much navy goodness! My bedroom is cobalt, red, and white, and every morning I’m happy to wake up surrounded by such a refreshing palette.

    I’m really digging the Black and Poole room, too!

  • We just painted our media room hague blue (farrow and ball). I can’t say enough about this color. It’s strong and dreamy. One day, when my husband is not looking, I will lick the walls.
