“Sharp and structured or deep and moody, let navy blue be your colour muse.”

Navy crosses all boundaries in decorating – from classic nautical stripes to the opulence of bold velvet.

Warm and cosy as they may be, winter decorating doesn’t have to mean sticking to all browns and greys. The addition of classic navy and deep dark tones of inky blue work beautifully to add depth and sophistication to your decor.

Why we love navy blue

Navy blue is easy to use with other colours

Sprucing up a space with blue is as breezy as sailing on the ocean – the many tones and hues of blue can transform a look when included as part of a whole colour palette. Add a punch of colour with a bright orange cushion or artwork for a look that is bold and contemporary – hello Greek island holiday!

Navy blue works well with neutrals.

Pair royal blue and sapphire with warm neutrals – timber tables, leather sofas, chunky natural knits and welcoming off-white textured walls. Add a touch of luxe with accents of metallic finishes – brass lighting, chrome tapware or pewter drawer pulls will all play nicely with navy and cobalt blue.

You can’t go wrong with navy blue & white

Colour confidence is at its best when you keep things simple to make a statement.. For a modern look team a navy feature wall with crisp white bedlinen, or include bold stripes to create the ultimate in nautical chic. Embrace the timeless age of artisan makers with a feature wall or entry hall of Moroccan tiles. Form a vignette with pieces of classic chinoiserie-style ceramics – think your Grandmother’s favourite tea cup, or the time-honoured ginger jar on a coffee table or mantlepiece.
