In the Navy! 11 ways to decorate a room with Navy Blue

Navy blue is a classic and lately it has been trending in both fashion and home decor.  Navy is a great option is you want depth but aren't willing to go as deep and dark as black.  Navy is a great way to stay timeless in your decor but you can also make your space look fresh using pops of navy. 

We love working with Navy blue because of the possibilities, here are our 11 favourite ways to decorate with navy

1.  Try a NAVY sofa.  We always recommend a neutral toned sofa so why not navy? Navy is a classic tone and it works with all colours.  If you like the idea of a darker sofa, navy is a great option.  Add some texture with pillows and a throw blanket, mix some pattern and print and we love the modern floor lamp in gold finish - it all works so beautifully together and it has a cool style in classic tones.

 Layered patterned pillows adorn the sofa in this living room, creating texture and a stylish sense of coziness. Above, a world map in beautiful shades of blue adds interest and color.:

2. NAVY in the bedroom. doesn't this bedroom look crisp and clean? The contrast of the white and navy is so fresh and still warm.  Navy can have a glamorous vibe too, it doesn't have to be nautical.  Look at the shape of the headboard and finished in navy velvet very chic and then paired with glass lamps and the geo print shams and duvet with just a pop of orange - it's perfect!

3.  Accent wall in NAVY.  Accent walls are still 'a thing' but we are seeing them more in deeper and darker neutrals.  We actually did a commercial office and painted some accent walls in Hale Navy by Benjamin Moore - it's amazing!! We love the classic colour yet the bold statement it makes on the wall.  Add an over sized piece of art and instant chic!

4. One furniture piece in NAVY.  Since navy is a neutral it works with everything, so if you are on the hunt for a new furniture piece why not look for something in navy? This navy tufted over sized ottoman is the life of the party in this soft neutral room.  We love it's function but also how it pops in the space (to bridge it all together, a few pillows with some navy would be perfect)

The 5 most important things to focus on when expecting company:

 5. NAVY kitchen.  The kitchen is the heart of the home so make sure it looks it's best!  Try using navy to freshen up those kitchen cabinets.  We love the navy blue lower cabinets in this kitchen - again a great alternative to black or espresso stain.  It looks amazing with the over sized stainless steel pulls and against the white - the whole kitchen looks so bright. Colour in the kitchen can be a risk but not in a classic colour like navy.

6. Pattern drapery in NAVY.  We love patterned drapery it has such a 'designer' look and it's like art framing your windows.  We love this fresh look - the pattern isn't too busy and the contrast isn't too harsh.  It adds some fun to the room but it still feels classic.

7.  NAVY blue wallpaper.  A wallpaper accent wall is a great way to make a statement.  But we are also loving all walls in wallpaper in a small space like a powder room.  It's fun and if you get bored it's an easy room to update and switch up but if you have fabulous wallpaper why would you want to? This navy and white zebra print wallpaper is not for the faint at heart but for those who love to be noticed this is for you! We love it but caution this isn't for everyone!

Most effectively drawing a zebra print room ideas in the interior will look like, where neutral colors and shades. Description from I searched for this on

8. NAVY blue Boys Bedroom.  I know we sound like a broken record but with navy as a classic it just doesn't age.  So it is a great option for a boys' bedroom - it is a neutral tone that he can grow up with even as his tastes change. we are big fans of light colours on bedroom walls but we do love this room - the navy with nail head bed looks great with the white and beige bedding but it would also look great with Kelly Green or Candy Apple Red, too.  So it is a great piece in a classic colour.  We also love the navy and white rugby stripe rug, so fresh! The pops of orange and the natural wood tones in the room make it stylish and perfect for a boy!

9. NAVY on the floor.  We are huge fans of a pattern rug - it's like art on the floor.  We do love colour but we know that many are hesitant to invest in colour and pattern for their floor coverings, so a navy pattern rug is a great compromise.  We absolutely love how this navy trellis pattern gives life to this soft neutral room.  We also love using a glass coffee table on a pattern rug - you get to see more of it! The rug colour and print is echoed with an accent lumbar pillow in same tones but slightly different pattern - but it's all chic!!

10. NAVY and the unexpected.  We started to see the mix of navy and pastels last year but mainly on the racks and runways - unexpected colour combos with navy blue.  We have all seen the typical combos - navy and white, navy and red, navy and yellow, navy and gold but what about navy and mint green, navy and soft pink (rose quartz, maybe?), navy and lilac but one of our favourite combos right now is navy and coral - it's bold and bright but fun and still warm, we love it!

Funny to see this as I painted my girls nursery navy blue... I loved The way it created a rich background for the corals, yellows and turquoise accents.:

11. NAVY accent pieces.  Anytime you are introducing the idea of colour to your space, start slow...starting with accents is the easiest way and most affordable way to know if you are ready to commit.  So have an 'audition' and introduce some small accent pieces like pillows, candles, art, table lamps and just decor accent to the space and let it all sink it.  If you like it and want more see the list above.....
