Moody Blues

Since seeing the cover image on the May issue of Home Beautiful, I’ve been itching to paint a room navy.

I’ve always preferred Navy to Black in my wardrobe and get very excited when the winter clothes start appearing in the stores and there is navy amongst them.

I think painting the walls a dark colour is a great way to cosy up your decor. The bedroom on the cover of Home Beautiful looks so inviting as does this room from Aura.

Some of the navy blues that would work on the walls in your home include:-

Madison by Resene

Biscay by Resene

Blue Velvet by Dulux

Academic Blue by Dulux

Just remember if you are going to paint your walls a dark colour then most of the furnishings need to be light to balance it up.

Diane Bergeron has chosen off white sofas and window coverings to complement the navy walls.

One of my other favourite combinations is Navy and Taupe and this fabric would look fantastic on a sofa in a navy room.

Perhaps if all this navy talk has you hankering for a touch of blue in your home, but you don’t want to go overboard, you might like these beautiful Ginger Jars available from The Store Room.
