In The Navy

How was your holiday weekend? Fun and relaxing, I hope! Between spending time by the water, the color scheme of the weekend and a conversation about navy lacquered walls….I’ve had NAVY on the brain.

I feel like gray was the color for so long…and I’ve got it in my home, too. But, I’m feeling drawn to something a little more strong. Not the nautical version, but a glammed up, sophisticated navy blue.

This study by Jan Showers has been one of my favorites for years. I love the color contrasts and that she painted the walls and the trim the same rich blue.

This butlers pantry is one of my favorites and belongs to my pal, Sue, over at The Zhush. She has an amazing eye for color and I love that she took a cue from Miles Redd and then added her own touch.

Are you feeling a little BLUE now that the long weekend is over? If so….consider feeling NAVY and it might just cheer you up!
