As I look around the stores at the fresh,summer home and fashion accessories, I see a lot of navy and also the nautical trend, It's a perfect fit at this time of year.Navy is a wonderful colour to add depth, drama and elegance without going all the way to black. There are many ways to use it, starting with the crisp and traditional look of navy and white. Try stripes or a pattern, or mix it up by adding a new twist. How about these new colour combinations.
Using two colours and adding texture keeps it interesting. For instance grasscloth wallpaper. Also the tufted headboard and chevron throw.
The nautical look and feel can be made by bringing in a few small pieces. Just be careful not to go overboard and make your home a theme park! Look at these examples I found.
So if you need some navy, go for it! Not just at the cottage.Any room, any design style. Something for everyone. Just like this room to the left. Traditional and contemporary furniture brought together with a muted navy wall and damask drapery. Touch of navy in the striped pillows. Statement light fixture from IKEA and a hint of pink on the table.
