Decorating with Navy Blue

Navy blue is an "in" color right now. And the best thing about this trend, is its timelessness. Navy never goes out of style! Navy can be a neutral or a color. You can pair it with neutrals or colors. It can be bright or muted. It's pretty and awesome!

Right now, I'm getting ready to redo the Little Man's room and navy is one of the main colors I'm using. It's gonna be gorgeeeeoooous! It's my new favorite color!

Anyways, there are so many great navy color combos out there! If you've been thinking of using navy in your home, here are some beautiful inspiration photos to get you going.

I love the classic navy and white! Everything just pops against it! To keep it from feeling too cool, warm it up with natural fibers, like a cowhide or sisal rug, and layer on the textures with lace, paneling, or baskets.

This is my second favorite navy combo. Green will also be in the Little Man's room!

I never thought I was a fan of orange, but I am loving these rooms! I think I'll try to bring some pumpkin orange in with pillows come fall. And the coral nursery is so sweet!

Red can come off looking too overtly 4th of July-ish when paired with blue(not that it's a bad thing if that's what your going for!) But it can also be playful, moody, or sophisticated. I love that moody navy bedroom with the dark red rug!

Yellow isn't my favorite, but it can look so cheerful and bright, or even moody, when paired with navy.

I just picked some of the main color combos out there. There are so many variations and different shades to pick from, this post barely scratches the surface! So what are your favorite navy color combos? What color scheme would you absolutely never use?
