Crazy For Navy

It is hard to believe tomorrow is the 1st of September. It is the month where summer fades into fall, wardrobes transition for cooler weather, and seasonal preparations for the home begin. I find Navy to be an ideal transitional color. It is the perfect pair to a white stripe in the summer, and sultry in high gloss and velvet in the winter. While navy is it’s own shade, it also embodies many shades of it’s own. From a navy shade of ocean to the almost black shade of Russian navy, all hues of the classic color seem to work for interiors. Weather the color of a front door, a wall, or an accent chair, navy adds a rich warmth and refreshing ambience to all rooms.
