Navy blue is one of those colours that have a very impactful presence, and is versatile enough to be used in a number of interior design styles. It can help emulate a solemn vibe in a modern or minimal style ambience. Yet at the same time, it can help evoke a fun, glitzy aura in a retro or vintage style interior design. It’s a globally appreciated colour and today we’ll be presenting your guide to using navy blue accents in your home interiors!
1. Hues and tints
If you want to create a visually dynamic home interior, you can go all out by using different hues and tints of this colour in your spaces. Don’t know how to do that? Take a look at this image. It shows a great way you can incorporate this technique in your bedrooms. The printed bed covers features so many variations of navy blue, which end up making the space seem absolutely dynamic!
2. If you’re going for understated
If your goal is to create a fully understated space with an emphasis on neutral colours, then you can use navy blue to add a hint of visual weight to the space. Take this living room as an example. It features a navy blue area rug, which nicely complements the rest of the light colour scheme. It doesn’t take away the understated elegance of the space, but does add a nice balance to it.
3. As contrast
Navy blue is the perfect colour to introduce contrast in your interior designs – especially if you’re working with a light colour scheme. You don’t have to be very bold about it – you can simply use a single, small object in a visually forward place to achieve this goal. The scarf hung on the coat hanger in the corner of this dining nook is a great example of how to accomplish this.
4. In between warm and cool
While blue colour is inherently cool, it can pair nicely with both warm and cool accents. This is shown very nicely in this image. The navy blue area rug looks great over the slate floors, and the navy blue bed sheet looks even better against the warm wooden ambience of the bedroom.
5. Single décor objects
As mentioned before, the navy blue colour has a very active presence and a great visual weight. So even if you use it in small amounts, it can still have a healthy impact on your ambience. The navy blue tissue box in the center of this table is a great example of this technique.
