Using Navy Fabric as a Neutral

Posted by  in Design Ideas, Featured Fabrics   Comments Off

Recently, we endured an icy winter storm that caused the majority of those affected to stay home. During this dreary mess, I decided to rummage through my fabrics for some refreshing inspiration. While I was searching, I noticed that I was drawn to my navy patterned fabrics.

Navy blue, along with cobalt blue, is a huge color this year and for great reason. This shade of blue has always been a color that never seems to go out of style. Navy is much like a neutral and can be used in several décor styles and can be coupled with a variety of colors. It serves as a great base color for your décor, much like black, white, beige, and gray, and makes the perfect accent color. And because it is similar to a neutral, it can stand alone, used with all Navy décor and accessories. Using several monochromatic patterned fabrics together creates an elegant, dramatic look.

Pantone Colors
However, if you’re looking to add an extra punch of color, navy coordinates ideally with the new 2014 Pantone Colors of the Year: Radiant Orchid, Placid Blue, Hemlock, Sand, Cayenne, Violet Tulip, Paloma, Freesia, Celosia Orange, and Dazzling Blue. It also looks stunning with gold and hot pink, creating a glam look!
