Navy Fabrics + Green Paint colors = A classic easy update for your home!
So, we’ve designed an updated yet calm space full of rich livable Navy Fabrics to pair with the sophisticated yet serene backdrop of a pale green paint color.
Our 2017 Color of the Year chosen by Intentional Designs, AF-485 Crystalline from Benjamin Moore pairs like a dream with Navy!
Crystalline, our color of the year has been paired with 4 of our Navy fabrics from IntentionalDesigns.com shopping site.
We’ve created a beautiful space with a blue & green palette full of textural and visual patterns combining variations of blue tones.
First begin with draperies in Chimay, a stripe fabric with a tie-dye twist.
Then add an accent pillow or two in Mocha, a cozy rich velvet fabric with cut pile.
Toss an accent pillow in Basil, this hashtag weave is nothing short of amazing.
Opt to choose draperies in Macey, a unique and beautifully embroidered fabric.
Combining Navy Fabrics with a Green paint color is basically an Analogous color scheme.
Because they sit next to each other on the color wheel, blue and green create a harmonious balance. So it’s important to add a bit of contrast, like wood tones, textures or white hues to support our analogous design plan.
Finally, we’re finishing off our room by adding accent pieces with texture. These accessories look great with a cool color palette by adding much needed warm tones.
My Simple Real Life Truth ~
On the whole, decorating for real life is most often a compromise. Therefore, the design is a careful balance of color, pattern, texture & scale that work on all levels for those involved. Whenever I decorate a space for a couple or family it’s important to keep the design ratio as equal as possible for everyone. This is especially true for a public space like a family room. I have found that stripes and geometric prints strike a happy design balance. Surprisingly textured fabrics tend to work well as secondary patterns.
Happy Friday! Have a great weekend and as always, thanks for sharing your week with us ~ Nancy
