In the Navy

If you haven't noticed, navy is making a big splash these days.  Navy, black and brown are always colors that are used by designers to ground a space.  None of these ever go out of style, but there is always one shade that is a little more popular than the others.  This year it is definitely navy!  Everywhere I look- from Ballard Design catalogs to House Beautiful magazine spreads to product in local shops- navy is front and center.  What I love about the color is it offers a softer contrast to other colors.  

When paired with white it is a crisp look, but not harsh to the eyes. 

There are beautiful fabrics that utilize navy.
Lampshades are adorned with the color.
Area rugs are showcasing the shade.
