Add a splash of nautical navy to your home
Don’t feel overwhelmed when it comes to adding colour. If you want to start small but still reap the rewards, begin with accessories and focus pieces like cushions, vases and accessories. This way you can make a decision, adapt with the seasons and give your home a new lease on life without spending a fortune.
Take a modern twist on tradition
Next steps if you don’t want to paint feature walls throughout your home, or update your elevation, is to choose doors and detailing to add depth. This is a great way to make your rooms stand apart and give them a modern lease of life.
A midnight blue works perfectly within a workspace or reading room. It’s a colour of wisdom and tranquillity. So if you’re designing your den, consider your paint palette for a peaceful room to retreat to. This also works well when added in minimum to bedrooms. Relax and get lost in a sea of navy.
Dramatise a small space
Controversially, consider painting your powder room and cupboard interiors – a coat of dark navy paint will open the space upand add elegance without going gothic! Unlike black, adding cream or white features within the spaces will create a beautiful contrast.
Teal tiling is a big tick
Clinical white kitchens are a thing of the past, a touch of blue can bring the hub of your home to life… or transport you to the beach. For a bold, but subtle nautical element, why not choose a blue backsplash?
Earthy, natural tones and navy are a match made in heaven – wood, leather and bronze all offer a stunning contrast, helping bring this more masculine tone down to earth.
This alternative to black pairs perfectly with dusty pinks, light lilacs and purple pastels. An intense hue deserves a more subtle contrast, reducing the drama of the room.
If you’re feeling bold, why not combine it with a warm yellow tone? It will break up the darkness, simply add an accent piece and create multiple depths within any space.
