Is that not the cutest little house?
I’ll admit that I’ve been dreading this post ever since I typed out the words “navy blue” on my last one. I was afraid that all I was going to find were traditional, masculine rooms, and I couldn’t have been more wrong!
I absolutely love this combination of colors. I never would have thought green and blue could be paired together so beautifully, but I think it adds such a warm, homey feeling to this room!
And if I was worried about navy blue being a masculine color, this bedroom defies that stereotype. It’s beautifully feminine and delicate — and also light and airy — adjectives I would never have associated with navy blue before I started searching for pictures!
I think this is my favorite use of navy blue. Not necessarily this room in particular, but the warm, cozy, inviting feeling that it adds. It makes you want to sit down with some friends over coffee and dessert or curl up with your family to watch a movie!
This kitchen embodies that same feeling (and I love the accent of the sunflowers on the island and the peaches on the window!). It manages to strike a perfect balance between traditional and modern.
Of course navy blue will always be associated with nautical themes as well.
But I’ve realized that it’s really such a versatile color, for indoors or outdoors!
And of course we need our token picture of navy blue combined with silver and white just to prove my theory that any color can be chic and modern in this combination!
Do you have navy blue around your home? Did any of the pictures above challenge your previous thoughts about the color?
I haven’t decided what color we’ll talk about next week yet, and I want to hear from you! What color would you like to see featured in the Splashes of Color series?
