Yep, you read the post title right, navy can serve as a neutral. What exactly does that mean? Basically that navy is one of those colors that goes with pretty much everything. Can you run through the colors and they all look good with navy? Then I'd call it a neutral. What's so exciting about navy is that it's dark & rich making other colors really pop. So here's a little interior inspiration for your Wednesday morning!
I'm showing you interiors heavy on navy with only a few other color introductions since navy is the star here. Don't let this limit you though. You can add bright colors or lots of neutrals to fit your personal style. Hence, the neutral title.
Use navy in an unusual way, think of it as replacing black. This kitchen island is a great example. Navy isn't as flat as black so it really adds a luxurious touch.
Just so you don't start thinking navy is only to be paired with soft neutrals, I thought I'd share a departure from the previous rooms. Obviously there is a lot of color here. Now try to imagine it without the navy chair. It would feel different don't you think? The navy adds a sophisticated feel & depth to the whole look.
