Royal Blue Revelation

June 27, 2012

Lately I’ve been crazy over royal blue, or as others sometimes refer to it as, navy.
Which term do you use?

I’ve mentioned here and there that since Spring sprung, I’ve been introducing this new-found hue throughout my home. It all started with a drapery panel (yes, that one right below in the pic) that I purchased with the intention to use as a shower curtain.  Once I got it home though, it was perfect for my dining room (the center of our home), and thus the beginning of my Royal Blue Revelation.

So how have I introduced this classic blue hue? Come and see…

I didn’t want to overdue this new navy color, but a few added accents go along way.  The new window drapery panels are from Lowe’s and are actually a Waverly fabric similar to their more expensive version – at $20 bucks a panel, they were a steal!  And did you check out my navy and white chevron throw – yes, to die for!  That I scored a few weeks ago from Joss and Main (don’t forget my Curator’s Collection starts next Sunday). The vintage sunburst mirror is a new DIY project that I just shared with a little added touch of blue and the adorable blue and white pillow is another Joss and Main find.

The blue hue is a perfect complementary color to orange since they sit opposite of each other on the colorwheel.  As you may know, orange is a dominant color throughout my interior, so it’s like a marriage meant to be!  The blue also starts leaning the overall aesthetic more towards a cooler direction rather than warmer.

I also have big news for you.  Aside from the royal blue accents that I’ve been adding here and there, I have a larger plan of painting the front room… {drumroll}

a dark navy.  Squeal :)  I’m still finalizing the EXACT blue hue, but it’s going to be divine.  I mentioned a few times (but have yet to write a post on it) that I’ve been painting my mouldings from oak wood to white, and the navy blue with crisp white paint is going to be spectacular. OMG – I can’t wait.

I’m off to make my final royal blue decisions.  This is where you’ll find me this afternoon…

Are you a royal blue / navy fan?  Are any of your walls a rich, deep royal blue hue?

    • Me too Liz! I’m thinking the navy will be really striking as you walk in the door – can’t wait to get started. xo Jenna

  2. I had navy walls with white woodwork in our entry/stairway in our last house. It was absolutely stunning when you walked in. The white woodwork just pops. I think you will love it.
