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.
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.
Dark navy blue walls give a beautiful depth to this dining room design. Natural light, an open feel and white molding keep the space feeling light. A coastal, driftwood framed mirror pairs beautifully with the natural wood tabletop over white table legs. A metal sphere chandelier and black chairs finish the polished look.
Light hardwood and white walls create a beautiful and airy base for this sunny living room set up. Wood french doors and a navy accent wall add deeper tones to ground the room while the rugs bring an element of soft texture. Brass accents are drawn out with a sleek end table.
This modern family room features navy blue walls and ceiling, with a vibrant, floral accent wall. The furniture follows the same design style, with a large blue sofa and deep red armchair beside French doors.
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 living room with navy blue walls is complemented by four modern-style blue chairs, which are positioned around three different-sized round white tables, giving a contemporary feel to the space. A flatscreen television sits above a simple built-in fireplace to make this room perfect for entertaining.
