COLOUR: 5 WAYS TO WORK NAVY BLUE INTO YOUR HOME INTERIOR
NAVY BLUE IS SO VERSATILE
Blue, especially Navy has always been top of my list of colours for interiors. I love how dramatic it can be and the huge variety of different shades. I also love how beautifully it sets off a traditional interior like a cosy georgian style library, and, how it can be used in an open modern space with the use of colour blocking for a bold contemporary statement. I'm currently painting my small home office a very dark navy and it's looking lovely so far, I am hopeful that using a dark colour in a small space can work. There are a few ways in which to work this colour into your interior and here are a few ideas I hope you find helpful. Here are my favourite Navy Blue and Indigo interior looks.
1. NAVY BLUE SHELVING AND ALCOVES
MAKE YOUR BOOKS AND OBJETS D'ART POP WITH DARK BLUE ALCOVES AND SHELVING. BUY A SIMILAR COLOUR HERE BY FARROW & BALL
2. FULL WALL OR SEMI-WALL COLOUR BLOCKING
THAT CONTEMPORARY BLUE COLOUR BLOCK LOOK I WAS TALKING ABOUT. TRY USING A BLOCK OF NAVY BLUE AS A FEATURE WALL LIKE THIS - BUY THIS COLOUR HERE BY THE PAPER & PAINT COMPANY
3. NAVY BLUE PRINTS
TRY USING A NAVY BLUE ORIENTATED PRINT LIKE THIS RICH AND SUMPTUOUS BLUE TOILE WALLPAPER. ADD IN SOLID NAVY BLUE ACCESSORIES OR FURNITURE TO COMPLETE THE LOOK - BUY HERE AT LITTLE GREENE
