There's Something About Navy

It is funny because I remember thinking navy was so ugly. Back
when it was in style the last time around. Does that date me?
LOL, oh well. These days I am sure loving it.
It brings such a hint of sophistication. Like this table setting.

What's not to love about this space?
I love every detail.
Or this one. I like this one because there are touches of navy, 
but it doesn't overpower the room. 
What a great rug!
Look at the drapes in this one. 
Not navy, but I love that little greige detail
around the top.

As much as I am loving it I haven't begun to put
any navy in my home decor.
But I have been putting some in my

And swooning over these Etsy shops!
You must visit!

What color are you loving?

Hi Jesse.
I so agree with you about the Navy. I'm usually not a blue person but I am loving Navy right now. I even bought two summer dresses in the color and love them.

I couldn't agree more...I'm loving Navy.

But, I think I'm loving all colors right now.

My affinity for grey is shocking me...I used to hate it! But I'm painting a room in our house grey right now!

I shy away from Navy too! But I LOVE a little in the wardrobe dept. SO Cute!

I really like that second room. I usually stay away from blues, but a little navy here and there is actually nice. I'm into a lot of bright colors nowadays :-)

Love how relevant this post is... we were JUST discussing painting our shutters navy blue instead of the standard black.

Cute cardigan. Is it old navy, or just the top?

I love Etsy...and I love the rooms. I don't know why I still can't do navy. :)

I have had the room from decorpad bookmarked for quite sometime. It is perfection!

I also love navy, but have never incorporated into my wardrobe or house. Your finds are inspiring me to think about it though!

I love that first bedroom. The details are stunning! Love the sweater as well!

I just received some fabric swatches of a navy for a slipcover for my boy! Gotta love Navy!

Leah said...

Oh I adore the second room! I foget about Navy sometimes but it is so pretty!

I've actually always loved navy. I see it as almost a neutral since it can be combined with most other colors. I decorated my first home in mostly navy and white. When it was time to sell we received so many compliments about the color palette from those who viewed the house. One of the most frequent comments was that they could easily move their things right in and it would work.

On another note, I LOVE that first sweater!
