I want to paint my bedroom navy. OK, no, I NEED to paint my bedroom navy. Seriously. It needs to happen.
We get lots and lots of light in our house, so while I'm not afraid of dark walls, I've tended toward light walls for the most part. But for our bedroom, I'm dying for navy walls. They're rich, cozy, and just beautiful.
Navy is one of those colors that can be really good or really bad in a room though, so I'm going to do my research before I buy any gallons of paint! I've been drooling all over Pinterest lately while doing that research, and thought I'd share some of my very favorite navy bedrooms!
This one from Our Fifth House proves that with enough white to balance the dark walls, navy paint doesn't have to swallow the room. The white also keeps the room from feeling too heavy with such a large, stately bed.
I looooooooove the giant white baseboards in this room from How To Decorate. The smoky blue is kinda moody, yet calm. I love the classic look of the greek key bedding too!
I love the navy in this room from Primitive and Proper . It's so rich and true. The gold accents make it even richer, and that pop of turquoise on the dresser is so.much.fun.
Emily's Navy & Coral bedroom over at Decorchickis just too cute. She painted just one accent wall in navy and left the rest white. With all of the color in this room, I think the white walls bring balance. And I think this navy is my favorite of them all; it's Naval by Sherwin-Williams.
HGTV featured this simple navy and white room. The high white wainscoting brightens the room in a big way. The addition of a little bit of off-white warms up the room too and doesn't compete with all of the bright, true white because it shows up in 3 places - the bench, the picture mats, and the carpet.
This navy is a bit more classic blue than some of the others. I love the navy and white decorative trim below the windows and the soft green accents in this room from Decoist.
Kelly at View Along The Way is a flippin' genius, as evidenced by, well, her entire house. She trialed 5 different navy options for her bedroom walls, and her choice of Benjamin Moore's Hale Navy was brilliant!
Here's another example of a single navy accent wall and a bunch of white over at SF Girl By the Bay. How fun are those thrifted brass sconces??
Here is a slightly softer, gray-er navy blue from the end-all, be-all of DIY blogging, Young House Love. It's a little more subtle than I want to go with, but it's still gorgeous. Because everything that comes from YHL is gorgeous. I seriously have dreams of waking up one day to a new post from Sherry & John.
This navy room from bedroompedia.com.is so simple -- just a few pillows, no curtains, just simple. It's sweet and feminine and that navy just speaks volumes to me.
So there you have it. 10 beautiful specimens. They've definitely inspired me to get my behind in gear and make our bedroom look a little more cozy! What's your fave??
