5 Ways to Style Navy at Home

Classic and chic, navy is a versatile neutral that can grab attention or demurely accent. Navy’s dichotomous nature can conjure a sense of strength while still offering blue’s overarching calm vibe. In honor of our newest color addition, we selected our favorite styling tips to help you incorporate navy into your home.

1. Neutrals and Navy

If loud statements are not for you, try mixing navy with neutrals. When surrounded by neutrals, navy attracts your eye and anchors the room.

2. Add a Pop of Pink

Layering bright pink on navy lightens the mood and is an easy way to achieve a look that pops.

3. Mix in Gold Accents

Gold and navy are sophisticated bedfellows. We recommend mixing different textures of navy to add depth to this color scheme.

4. Use Bright White Walls as a Backdrop

There is something about navy in front of a clean whitewashed wall that is incredibly pleasing to the eye. Although bright white walls are an amazing background for nearly any color – we vote for navy!

5. Paint Your Walls

Common decorating rules dictate that dark walls are a faux pas. We could not disagree more. When paired with the right lighting, dark walls can upgrade the cozy factor in a room. Adding white moulding will help showcase the strength of the navy paint.
