5 Ways To Incorporate Navy Into Your Design

Updated: Feb 4

1. Your cabinetry

An entire kitchen? Maybe too dark, but possibly your lowers! An island? Sure! Keep the drama centered! A bathroom vanity? Definitely! A sweet pop of deep dark navy with a light/white bathroom scheme is probably my absolute favorite!

2. A bedroom

(Keep note that it can get very dark, very quickly. I think combining a navy with white judges paneling or wainscoting is so gorgeous!)

3. Wallpaper

Yes! You heard me! Walllllppaaapppeerrrr. Don't cringe, I promise you'll love it. I do love a dark navy grasscloth, or you can find wallpaper with just a pop of navy. Think: behind your bookshelves, above wainscoting in a dining room, or bring your powder room to life! This isn't your gram gram's house, so we're not putting it all over the place!

4. Interior doors

Painting interior doors a deep, rich color like navy blue says: "I'm cool, but I'm not crazy". It's a great way to add drama without completely committing because it's literally just a quart of paint! If you're super conservative with your designs, but looking to make a change, I think this is the perfect route for you!

5. Exterior

Whether it's an entire house or just a front door, I absolutely love adding navy to an exterior color palette!
