If there’s one color on the entire spectrum that embraces the royal aura like nothing else, it’s: navy blue. The deep charisma and elegant sophistication of this color is not only soothing, but also brimming with personality. It’s a color that can have a huge impact on your spaces, and below we’ll be taking a look at 5 ways you can use it in your interior designs:
1. The classic accent wall
Navy blue is the perfect choice for a statement worthy accent wall. It’s eye-catching, offers high contrast, and can emulate a lot of character in the space. However, you’ll have to make sure that the surroundings are light enough – preferably all white – so that the deep hue of navy blue doesn’t end up becoming too overwhelming and unmanageable in the long run.
2. A plain backdrop
Navy blue color can make lighter accessories – especially furniture – stand out a lot. So, if there’s a specific set of furniture that you want to highlight, then you can set it all up against a plain navy blue wall. Just take a look at this image – the light rustic features of the dining table set look positively stunning when paired with the navy blue backdrop.
3. Highlighting kitchen cabinets
The beauty of navy blue color is that it is available in a number of different materials. This gives you a lot of opportunity to experiment. Navy blue kitchen cabinet laminates may seem like a far off choice, but they actually have a way of adding charisma to your kitchens. Of course, you’ll have to contrast with lighter surfaces, but one look at this image can tell you how much this color can bring out the life in your surroundings.
4. Light against dark
If you like gradients and find color experimentation interesting, then we suggest going for a statement navy blue wall in your bedroom. You can easily lighten it up with lighter bed spreads (in any color that you like) along with neutral hued wardrobe finishes and curtains.
5. Navy blue accenting
If you thing painting walls in navy blue color is a bit too much, then how about using it for accenting? You can choose small items in this color and strategically place them all over your homes so that everywhere the eye catches, there’s a navy statement piece to hook you there.
