Hi, all, I’m Susi, a writer for Design Shuffle, a fabulous community where interior designers, home enthusiasts, and other design professionals showcase their design projects, share inspirations, and network. I'm happy to be visiting Swirls of Happy to talk about trend spotting and related interior design ideas. One trend I've been seeing on blogs and in shelter magazines is the new love affair with navy in interiors. From cobalt to indigo, near black to true navy, dark blue is showing up in upholstery, on walls, in accessories and lighting. Why navy now? See the first picture for my theory. Enjoy!
Piniterest viaPerhaps the current navy trend can be traced back to the new Duchess of Cambridge. Her chic, feminine style embraces classic colors like navy in a modern way.
Princess Anne County viaLove the high gloss enamel finish of the navy walls that reflects light. Navy blue matte velvet offers a nice contrast to the wall. Gorgeous.
Lindsay Christensen Design viaNavy, white and gold are a classic color combination with a nautical inspiration; think of Navy dress uniforms with shiny brass buttons. Love the navy sofa with a white lattice pattern against the modern painting and rug.
Princess Anne County viaGlossy navy cabinets are gorgeous! Love navy in kitchen designs, but navy cabinets are new to me. What do you think? Do you love them?
Singing in the Rain viaThis navy wall behind the bed offers a dramatic backdrop for the charming animal portraits. A navy accent wall or an entire room painted navy looks crisp when paired with white accents and moldings.
Pininterest viaNavy paired with brown and burnished gold makes me think of navy blazers and leather riding boots. The textured navy walls are beautiful against the shine of the gold and the suppleness of the leather.
House and Home viaNavy and Kelly green is another favorite pairing. This preppy combination can work in both traditional and more modern rooms.
Interior Design Trends and Ideas viaInspired by blue and white porcelain, the classic navy blue and white interior is just as timeless. Geometric patterns, florals and stripes all look crisp in navy and white interior designs.
