Navy blue is one of those colors that just doesn’t get enough attention. It’s super versatile, and depending on how you use it and what you pair it with, can create looks that range from dark and elegant to fun and colorful.
Here are 4 ways you can use navy home decor to create the blue living room of your dreams.
1. Paint The Walls
If you really want to commit to the navy blue color scheme, take the plunge and paint your walls. You’ll create a dramatic effect and be able to create an elegant yet modern interior with the furniture and decor you add to the space.

2. Couch / Sofa
If you want to add navy decor to your living room but aren’t quite ready to cover your walls in the color, try adding a navy couch. It’s the largest piece of furniture in the room so it will definitely make a statement, but it won’t be quite as dramatic as painting the walls.

3. Accent Pieces
Poufs, arm chairs, rugs, and curtains, are a great way to bring in navy without it feeling overwhelming. Small pieces of furniture let you create a cohesive look without letting the color completely take over.

The most subtle way to add navy to your interior is to do it in small doses. Curtains, an area rug, throw pillows, and wall art are just a few of the ways you can add touches of navy to your space without the color feeling too dark or dominating.
