Hot trend for 2012!
Just in time for the new year, there is a new colour trend on the design horizon!
Navy is making a comeback as a crisp, cool neutral which can be paired with unlimited colours. I have used a chart from Home Furniture Catalogues to show you just how well it goes with almost any other colour.
This colour also looks amazing with taupes, sands, greys, reds, etc.
This is why it is also considered a “neutral”.
There are so many ways to incorporate this hue into your home’s colour scheme.
1. Paint a wall.
Just one wall painted in this rich, classic colour can drastically change the look of your space. Pairing it with crisp white makes it look fresh, and prevents it from being too overwhelming.
2. Paint some furniture.
Most of us have a piece of furniture that needs a fresh coat of paint. Why not choose navy? Spray painting the handles gold will give it an elegant new look.
3. Add a pillow or two.
Adding some navy pillows to an existing colour scheme will allow you to incorporate this trendy colour in a small way.
4. Add some accessories.
If you’re not sure about a new colour, it’s a good idea to introduce it into your space with some accessories that can easily be replaced, such as a throw, lamp or lampshade, small rug or a grouping of vases.
Here are some more inspiring pictures for you – enjoy 🙂
Try using this rich, dramatic hue in your space and see how it can make a difference!
I’d love to see some photos if you do 🙂
Have a great week,
