Send in the Navy

If you thought navy was just for dress clothes and seafaring uniforms, think again. Lately, it’s become one of the most in-demand colors for interior design – and not just within those nautical-themed rooms in Pottery Barn Kids catalogs. Though the dark blue color is very traditional, it’s also versatile. Navy walls can be just short of black, so they pop against white trim or wainscoting. Modern designers also love to pair the elegant hue with spring-like colors, from peony pinks to sunflower yellows and vibrant greens, for an unexpected and fun overall look. We’ve accompanied our love for navy with a few botanical elements – like pressed flower prints and faux succulents – to inspire your creativity.
