The Dark Side of Neutral is Navy + It's Perfect

The Dark Side of Neutral is Navy + It's Perfect

I'm sure you've probably already heard, but just in case you haven't, I'm here to let you know that 

Navy is the it color for 2017

I'm pretty excited about this color trend + I thought you would be too. I like to think of navy as the dark side of neutral, replacing taupe + grey to mood-ify + modernize your space instantly. It's deep, saturated + full of resonance that will fill your home with warmth. Here are some easy, non-committal tips to bring navy into your own space! 

8 easy Ways to Introduce Navy

BATHROOM BLUES

Navy as an accent color in a bathroom is the perfect compliment to whites, nickel, gold + grey's. Use it as a tile, wallpaper, vanity, or maybe even some fun navy light fixtures!

Ceramics + Pottery 

The most non-committal use of navy is to incorporate moody ceramics + pottery into your collection. I love the stark contrast of the navy on white, but navy on black would be divine too.

Define your space

Accent walls are always great in a home as it places emphasis on a certain area. Navy is great to add depth + warmth, but be sure to pick a smaller wall to not overwhelm your room.

Sleep in saturated hues

I've always been a fan of light bedding but, after seeing some dreamy dark-toned bedding, I gotta jump on board. You can't get much better than some navy linen, lived-in bedding!

change up your kitchen

This one may require a bit more planning, but is still certainly do-able! I love the look of navy islands, or a mix of white + navy cabinetry. P.S if your kitchen tends to be dark, think of brightening it before introducing the moody color.

take baby steps

If you're not totally ready to commit to the bold sofa statement, think of adding in smaller elements like these rad navy, wool pillows. Throw pillows are hands-down the easiest way to hop on this trend. Go for indigos + creams to balance.

don't hate the room, just the chore

You may not like doing laundry, but you sure can love the room you're in. Adding a modern touch of navy can transform any laundry or mudroom. This space with white, gold + wood tones is the perfect companion to highlight the navy cabinetry. 


Now, go to your hardware store, grab some paint + go create!
