Known for its calming and also dramatic effect, navy blue is one of Mother Nature’s favourite shades. From the evening sky to stormy seas, use this hue in place of comfortable cushions that will add just the right accent to your favourite space.
An unmistakably classic colour, navy blue dates back to the 18th century, when it got its name from the uniforms of officers in the British Royal Navy. Since then, the strong association with all things noble and nautical has not faded, making it a favourite among decorators looking for some serious style. Bring home a touch of this rich shade with gorgeous navy cushions, a comfortable accent that will add refinement to any space.
No stranger to the traditional bedroom scheme, our selection of navy blue cushions run the gamut of maritime to uptown chic, it’s only a matter of finding which best suits your taste. From blue and white stripes abound in a sailor’s abode to a deep dusky hue found in elegant hotel suites, navy blue can truly blend into any personal style for the ultimate master bedroom. Thrown on the bed for additional colour and comfort, or on an accent chair, these pillows look beautiful when paired with rich, natural accents made of wood. Incorporate a set of teak side tables for a sleek mid century vibe, or a deep stained oak bed frame for a statement that says you’ve been yachting with the Kennedys and it’s no big deal.
Whether you prefer just a few cushions to offset your room or intend to go all-the-way navy, this is a colour that is hard to get wrong. Bold yet understated, timeless but always in the moment, navy also looks amazing in a dramatic living space. Try contrasting with another neutral tone like a white sofa and seating for a nod towards the Hamptons lifestyle. You don’t have to be an aristocrat to make the most of this rich shade—you just have to have exceptional taste.
