Color I Love This Month – Navy Blue

I have had a color crush on navy blue for the past year or more. It started with navy blue cars. I fell in love and wished my car was navy instead of boring silver. Then it was fashion, from dark, navy denim to navy summer dresses. Navy is basic. It’s classic and so versatile.

Try it with white for a high contrast. With tan or grey it’s a bit more sophisticated. It sings with its complement, orange. It’s classic and American with red and white and is bold and modern with black.

Here’s how I’m loving in the home.

How do you use navy blue in your home? What is your favorite navy color pairing?

Happy decorating!
