The color I’m Loving Now – Navy Blue

Navy blue is quickly becoming the new neutral – see ya gray! It’s an easy color to work with because it pairs so well with so many other colors: apple green, tangerine orange, fire engine red, navy with other tints and shades of blue, and of course the classic navy and cream.

But how do you use navy in your decor? Navy is a beautiful and bold wall color choice – I love it in dining rooms – but if you aren’t willing to commit to so much color on your walls then consider using it these ways:

There’s really no way to go wrong with navy. Plus it’s super forgiving, hiding spills and such, which makes it a fav among my clients with kids.

Plus I’m pretty sure Bears fans will love it.
