When it comes to color, blue is the most popular. It is natural, relaxing, and gender neutral. We use it in home staging all the time because it appeals to everyone and always adds beauty and a sense of elegance to a space. One of my favorite shades of blue is navy blue.
What’s great about navy blue is that it’s bold without being overwhelming. It manages to be both calm and eye-catching at the same time, making it a wonderfully versatile and timeless color. It’s most often paired with white for a crisp, clean look, but you can pair it with a lot of other colors, too, for different results based on your taste. Pairing it with orange and green, for example, would create a very eclectic look, pairing it with pink would bring out a more feminine side, and pairing it with gray would make it more masculine.
Here are 10 stunning rooms with navy blue decor that used the color in various, inspiring ways.
