A Crisp Combination
Nothing pairs more beautifully with navy blue than ivory. We love the bold statement made by HGTV fan kaceyluvi in this contemporary dining room with dark navy walls set off by a sparkling chandelier and white molding.
Sweet and Subdued
To spice up this cottage-style bedroom, HGTV fan homemom added a turquoise damask pattern to all-white bed linens. The color evokes a lively feel without taking away from the subdued palette.
A Work of Art
Dark blue needs a light counterpart to work well. That's why we love the idea of adding white trim and molding around artwork set against a navy wall. The contrast creates an eye-catching balance that looks crisp and clean. Design by HGTV fan hriftydecorchick
True navy never goes out of style. HGTV fan Layla Palmer mixed navy accents with white and ivory linens for a preppy and sophisticated sea-inspired bedroom.
Baby Blue Accents
One of the most successful and unexpected color combinations is brown and baby blue. From the crib bedding to the leaves on the tree, these colors blend effortlessly for maximum impact. Design by HGTV fan Sharon Kuplack
Blue works beautifully as a bold accent in a little boy's bedroom. HGTV fan tutulady mixed patterns and textures in various shades of blue to create a dynamic and playful space.
