To turn the once-drab powder room into a bold and cheerful space, the walls and ceiling were painted navy blue in a semigloss finish. The dark-colored walls and ceiling help tone down the intense chartreuse paint of the adjacent guest room.
Two white shag rugs separate this contemporary loft into a bedroom and sitting area. A contemporary navy sofa and black chairs sit around a black coffee table in front of the high-arched windows. Long navy curtains hang in the arches as well as around the windows in the exposed brick wall.
Navy blue ceramic tile serves as a functional backsplash and a striking accent wall that gives this kitchen a rich pop of color. Glossy gray countertops make a stylish impact. Simple white cabinets and walls balance the high-shine from appliances, tiles and countertops.
Wood tones run the risk of appearing too heavy when placed against a dark wall, such as this midnight blue bedroom hall. But just a touch of white can balance things out, as it does with this dresser and matted artwork.
Nothing beats blue and brown for a great color combination, and Susan Brunstrum used these hues to their best effect in this Park City, Utah bathroom redo. She painted the walls a navy blue and added a medium brown vanity and mirror to complement the brown woodwork. A pop of green in the artwork and vanity accents make a pleasant statement.
Most of this riverfront home's spaces display light, soothing colors as the wall color, but the dining room adds drama with its dark navy blue walls. Black wood chairs with blue and white cushions surround the oval dining table, with two neutral upholstered chairs in the corners for additional seating.
A cream colored headboard stands out against a dark blue wall and is anchored by a bed dressed with blue and white floral and geometric patterned linens and pillows. Blue and white art accessorizes the look while a white cottage-style nightstand lends a cozy feel to the room. A blue and white striped throw rug anchors the space and distressed antique white wall sconces add visual interest.
