Navy Blue: 2017 Color Trend

Navy Blue is on the rise for home decor in 2017! Shades of blue have always had a broad-based appeal with homeowners. So it’s no surprise that Navy Blue is trending!

Navy Blue is on my radar for the color to watch in 2017 for a few reasons. Navy gives deeper gray tones a little competition. It also works well with lighter gray tones. And paired with white, Navy rivals the traditional Black & White palette.

Injecting navy blue in your home can be as simple as paint or home decor accents, decorative accessories or upholstery pieces.

If you don’t have a lot of natural light in your room, try painting an accent wall in a blue.

A blue color scheme is a great choice for just about any room of your home. It’s associated with calmness, confidence & intelligence and perceived as soothing.

Because blue is a cool color it can be perceived as cold maybe even aloof. In addition this cool color is often thought not to be an appetizing choice for a dining room or kitchen. Personally, I really like blue and especially a navy & white color scheme for a dining room or kitchen. So basically it’s up to you!

My Tip:
Add blue tones to balance a southern sunny exposure.
