Navy blue is the perfect accenting colour. It’s deep, rich, and stunning. It has a huge visual presence and is able to complement many other colours really well. Its cool and understated beauty can definitely add a lot of charisma to a space. So, if you need some inspiration to accent your interiors with this colour, here are 5 that will blow you away:
1. Classic kitchen cabinets
Navy blue is a beautiful colour to paint your kitchen cabinets with – especially if you’ve got a wood and white backdrop. The deep and rich tones of this colour would emulate a lot of personality within your kitchens. Plus, it’s really easy to complement with gold-tinted hardware, beautiful wooden textures, and even patterned Peranaken tiles. Just take a look at this image for inspiration!
2. Accent area rugs
If you want to make your navy blue accents an important part of the overall interior design, then you can incorporate them in the form of an area rug. Navy rugs are patterned with white geometry most of the time, but they can also be found in solid colours. You can pick whichever one suits the overall theme of your space the best!
3. Pro tip for kitchen blues
The one thing you should keep in mind while using navy blue in your kitchens is that it’s an accent colour. This means you have to use it less than the primary colour scheme. Therefore, you can only feature it on your kitchen cabinets if they take up relatively less real estate. For example, the kitchen in this image only has lower cabinets, so the navy blue of their finish takes up less visual space than the white and greys that make up the primary colour scheme.
4. Shelf inserts
If you’ve got open shelves in your home interiors, then you can introduce some navy blue accenting by finishing their interiors in this colour. It’s a subtle but impactful way to introduce casual accents within a space. It also gives you the opportunity to further accent the navy blue with metal accessories, trinkets, and baubles.
5. Statement walls
Lastly, you can use the evergreen and timeless concept of statement walls to emulate navy blue accents within your home interiors. The dresser mirror wall backdrop done in rich navy in this image is the perfect example on how to carry out this tip.
