Color Moods: Ole' Navy

I don't know about you, but I hate it when my real job gets in the way of my blogging! The sad thing is as I wrote that I meant it as a joke, but I realized that I'm kind of serious. But luckily I found an extra few minutes to add in a Color Moods post...and I couldn't be more in love with this color-heck, it was THE color in my wedding, along with aqua and yellow, and it's one of the accent colors in our bedroom.

Navy, here's to you!















I think my favorite has to be navy paired with neutrals, how about you? Whats a great color to use with navy in a space?

Funny, I feel the same way about my job, particularly since it has nothing to do with design.

I'm not big on navy myself, but it looks good with gold, yellow, green, coral . . . I guess just about everything.

I LOVE navy! My living room is a very dark blue (just a shade shy of navy) which was a bold thing for me to do because I've never gone so dark before. I paired it with silver (I have a silver tin ceiling).
Great post!
Hope you're having a lovely week!

New reader/follower here. Great blog!

Love these shots...especially the ones with navy walls. Wish I could do something this saturated and deep in my rental house.

Yellow, pink, gold, white...and apparently emerald green is making a comeback.

I completely agree with you on the "real job" thing. Oh how productive I would be if I loved my real job as much as blogging!!!

I really LOVE those yellow ceramic garden stools! I think pink is a good colour to use with navy, but you gotta like pink i guess!

I have really started to love navy recently. It looks fantastic with so many different colors and is very dramatic. Your inspiration photos were lovely today.
