2016 Interior Colour Trends – Navy Blue
Blue is an extremely versatile colour for interior design. Light and pastel blues can make a space feel bright and fresh, enhancing natural light and a sense of space. Meanwhile, darker blues appear rich and moody when used on larger expanses. Timeless indigo and navy blue shades, with night-time and nautical associations, have an intensity that means even the occasional splash within a scheme will immediately catch the eye and create a vivid focal point. There are endlessly possibilities, so let us inspire you with some of our favourite designs in bold blue.
Small Blue Gouvy Stool, £64.80, Amara
We know, it’s another hairpin leg design! We do love them. But how could this playful take on an industrial design not appeal? We love the combination of hairpin legs, tractor style seat and vibrant blue. This striking stool by Nantavia is ergonomic and adaptable and would work equally well in a home office or kitchen.
Haller Modular Storage, £1563, USM
Make an impression with iconic USM Modular Furniture in a navy shade. Whichever configuration you select for your cabinet, it will be a true statement piece in any room, practical and stylish in equal measure.
Cooper Two Seat Sofa Velvet Navy, £1400, The Conran Shop
Upholstered in luxurious navy velvet, this two seat sofa will take centre stage in your living room. The deep blue shade adds to the drama of the textured upholstery and the understated mid century inspired shape makes this an elegant choice for any home.
Miniature Bell Enamel Lamp Shade, from £14.60, Nook London
Brighten your space with the glow from this Nook London lamp and the smart navy of its shade. We love the beautiful contrast of the vintage inspired shape and the contemporary chrome holder. Whether hung individually or in a grouping, this lovely light demands, and deserves, attention.
String Pocket Shelving, £101.66, MyDecoShop
Here, String shelving perfectly demonstrates the powerful impression created by layering colour upon colour. Pairing the blue String Pocket shelving with traditional china crockery against a vivid blue wall is an stunning visual statement.
Nick Fraser Candelabra Four, £85, My Warehouse Home
From our second Capsule Collection, this candle holder in a deep Midnight Blue, with copper and brass is very on trend right now!
Stolen Form Brick Dish, £42, My Warehouse Home
Incorporate blue into your scheme one step at a time with this Brick Dish by Stolen Form. It won’t dominate the space, but is bold enough to make a difference.
Stolen Form Brick Dish, £34, My Warehouse Home
Or try the Brick Vase model by Stolen Form instead. The vibrant colour contrasts nicely with the vintage design and appearance.
Primary Grey Dining Chair Midnight Blue, £175, My Warehouse Home
Give your dining area an update with this chair handmade from plywood and tubular steel. It’s at once fun and classy!
