Navy blue is classic and bold. It looks fresh and preppy most of the time, especially when paired with crisp white. I have been using navy in almost every project for the past 5-8 years. Navy front doors, navy offices, navy kitchens, navy bathroom cabinets, navy master bedrooms, navy foyers and, at least one navy dining room. It’s an easy color to work with, it looks fantastic with wood floors and, once you paint something dark navy, you’ve got your bold move and everything else can be simple. Do you need some strong style for a smaller room? Paint the walls and any built-ins in the room navy blue and you’ll have instant panache.
