In The Navy // Interiors Trend

Navy blue has been gaining popularity in interior decors recently, and has been highlighted by Pinterest as one of the biggest home decor trends for 2017 in their annual Pinterest 100 trend report.

 Navy is a fabulous colour choice for an opulent vibe in living rooms and bedrooms, and gives a crisp depth to kitchens and bathrooms. I particularly love the navy shades of paint colours like Hague Blue, Stiffkey Blue, Inchyra Blue, and the darker Railings by Farrow and Ball that are among popular choices in many dark-inspired interiors on both Pinterest and Instagram. I've seen some stunning navy decors on Instagram from some of my favourite feeds to follow  - amazing interior stylists such as Lisa Dawson (Instagram: @_lisa_dawson_), Kerry Lockwood (Instagram: @kerrylockwood_)  Jen Streeter (@blissfully_eclectic),  Nadia Alessandra (Instagram: @artynads) and the doyenne of dark, interior designer Abigail Ahern (Instagram: @abigailahern), to name just a few who've embraced a stylishly darker palette in areas of their homes to create the most eclectically decadent decors. You definitely need to check them out.

So here are some inspiring navy hued interiors to give you the blues - in a good way.

I've been crushing on Kerry Lockwood's home for a long time now - it is simply stunning - you have got to check out the 'before and after' photos of her home on her blog - what an unbelievable transformation she has done. I adore her double living room and everything in it. So inspiring.

I love to see yellow and navy together in interiors - the yellow just gives a fab splash of colour.

Can you just imagine coming home to Nadia Alessandra's fabulous living room? Here she has used Railings by Farrow and Ball on the walls alongside divine plaid wallpaper to create this stunning living room, complemented with her amazing pieces that all work so well together to create such an interesting space. Check out her full home tour on Design Sponge.

How stunning is the vignette above from US Instagrammer Jen Streeter of this corner of her living area. Her home is an amazing eclectic mix and her instafeed is a feast for the interior-loving eye.

You can also introduce the trend into your decor via soft furnishings, artwork and key pieces such as sofas and cabinets.

Navy is also so complementary to other trending colours like yellow, green, copper, grey and blush pink.

I am lusting after a velvet sofa now. 

I love this navy chinois-inspired cabinet below, which really goes beautifully with the soft mauves in the rug,


Navy accents in a kitchen either on the wall, units and islands can take your kitchen to a whole new level of sophistication and it's a great way to update your current units rather than replace them  - and so much more cost efficient too. There are lots of people out there now offering their services to spray paint your old units but it is achievable to DIY this - you just need to use the right primers and paint for the job so before you rush in, consult with your local decor store to get the right advice first.

It goes so well with copper and gold too.

I love the mosaic floor tiles and gold hardware in this kitchen below.

Changing the hardware on your units to copper, brass or gold can make such a huge difference. I am obsessed with Buster and Punch whose kitchen unit hardware is just so crisp, modern and unique. They are very expensive but I guess cheaper than a new kitchen and their products will definitely give the wow factor. Of course, you can find similarily amazing handles etc. online and in DIY stores for a lower cost.

If you don't want to paint the entire kitchen, opt for just your island, or lower units instead as shown here in interior stylist Lisa Dawson's stunning kitchen that she recently updated on a pocket friendly budget  - read how she did it here on her blog. Her home in England is just stunning and she mixes finds from unique niche traders with High Street and vintage finds.

Tiles and kitchenware can also be used to bring a little navy blue into your scheme. How fab are these hexagonal tiles. and these mosaic wall tiles along with the Le Creuset stoneware give a lovely Mediterranean vibe.


First of all, let's just take a minute to admire this amazing bedroom. The botanical bedding together with the navy walls is just so lush. 

Having a feature wall painted in navy in contrast to white walls really gives a crisp aesthetic.

I love this room so much I had to show it from two angles. The linear chandelier is phenomenal, and that cane bed and juju decoration - divine! 

Jen Streeter's (@blissfully_eclectic) boho bedroom has gorgeous navy walls and I love her use of reclaimed wood panelling as a feature.

Again, just introducing navy in bedding, furniture or in artwork is quite striking.

Rose gold and navy work so well together. I love this artwork, which could be by the very talented Irish artist Lola Donoghue   - I so want one of her pieces.

These prints make this room look so fresh and vibrant.

This navy set of drawers just pops against the white wall.

I hope this curation gives you some ideas to add a touch of blue to your home.
