A navy blue paint colour brings a sultry sophistication to a room, dark blues create a serene ambience when used both in abundance and in moderation.
A blue room is instantly soothing and welcoming, no matter what type of blue you use and where you place it. From bedrooms and bathrooms that are completely blue to living rooms and hallways that feature blue accents and feature walls. We love the use of a dark blue or navy paint colour as it creates a timeless feel and adds style and interest to the room it is used in.
Navy paint colours are adaptable, with a useful ability to offset other colours, as well as bridging many seemingly contradictory moods and styles such as timeless or contemporary and glamorous or relaxing. Navy is very usable and versatile across many rooms in the home.
Navy works particularly well in Irish homes as our northern light enhances its pigments, giving a sense of endless space and opportunity.
What colours go with navy:
Navy is a surprisingly versatile paint colour that works well with shades of grey-greens, pale pink and white for a muted colour palette. If you are looking for a more daring palette, go for browns and oranges, or even a hot pink, just remember that a small amount of these shades go a long way.
There are many ways to make the colour blue work beautifully with a wide range of other colours. We have chosen a range of dark blues and navy blue paint colours to create a stunning and harmonious colour scheme in your home.
