{inky blue is (still) the new black}

Call it indigo, inky blue, or navy ... these deep shades are still HOT! I love the depth they create in a space. And fall just seems to make me gravitate towards these dark & cozy hues ...

I am just loving all of these spaces. But if I had to choose I would take the office with the white panelling, I think it perfectly frames the dark navy, don't you? And a den just seems like such a great spot for these deep hues. YUM!

Great ideas....Thanks for doing the work for us!

Brandi said...

You're right about the paneling really popping that office and the chair is fabulous! I've had that powder room pinned to my favorites for a while though so I think that's my first love! Trying to decide now if I should paint a bamboo dresser this color too!

Hi Nancy,
Deep navy and indigo walls create the illusion of being surrounded by the velvety quiet of a clear night sky. I love the sense of romance and mystery a dark, silky blue adds to a space.
Great post!

I am in love with those curtains with the gorgeous wallpaper in the first pic! Lovely Nancy.
PS: I do think dark blue is too cold for me in the winter but god, do I love any blue with white. They were born to live together!

Sarah Klassen said...

It's a gorgeous color, indeed!

As luck would have it, I was just discussing this very color with my Mom the other day, as she wants to have four velvet chairs in this blue for the library... can you imagine—with a large antique copper dome, grey accents, books—lovely, right?

I will send her a link to your post here :)

I wish I could whistle (like a construction worker) these images are just gorgeous!

The navy in these settings is so understated, and bold at the same time. I really love it. My favorite is the Windsor Smith chest... I wonder if I can upcycle something to look like it?
