If you’ve read my blog for a nanosecond, you may have discovered that I’m a big fan of navy (Exhibit A – my dining room). Always have been. It’s like a good pair of jeans – it’s comfortable and it goes with everything. You can dress it up, or keep it casual. It just works. Perhaps it’s because spring is on the way (or that I am wishing for it so much), but I have a navy and blush color crush. I had navy bridesmaids dresses when I got married almost 24 years ago, and I think if I got married now, I would choose navy again, with blush accents. Not to be confused with Shelby, from Steel Magnolias, whose colors were “blush and bashful”. 😉 This post contains some affiliate links.
I’m thinking about adding some punches of navy and blush to my family room to spruce it up for spring. That’s the upside of having a neutral couch – you can easily change it up with throw pillows, depending upon your mood. Maybe something like these pillows –
Or maybe some navy and blush abstract artwork. I love this high impact piece – and that it’s printable. I still need to give this printable art a try, don’t I?
Or this piece of abstract art, perhaps (also printable).
I’m considering throwing my hat in the ring for another One Room Challenge this spring (because I’m crazy like that). My basement office has turned into a basement junk room, and it would be nice to reclaim it as my own, or repurpose it into something completely different. A guest room, maybe? You could create some fun color palettes with navy and blush.
Throw in a little bit of pattern along with it – so pretty.
But the idea of a fresh office space is certainly appealing.
Dare I say, I would consider adding some wallpaper a room? I could totally get behind something like this (as long as I’m not the one hanging the wallpaper, that is).
What do you think of navy and blush? Trendy? Or a look that could last long term? Like anything, I think if you don’t go overboard, it’s something that you can incorporate in your home, with the option to change things up once you tire of it. Although I don’t think I’ll ever tire of navy. 🙂
