To finish up our previous discussion, the one color I’m always drawn to in my wardrobe is navy. Love it and can never have enough. When I think of navy, I think of elegance and grace. Not a trendy shade nor one to draw too much attention to itself, navy is a classic shade that exudes a feeling of solidity and richness quite like no other.
Here is what the colorscope has to say about those of us who love navy:
Navy can certainly be a conservative choice, on the other hand, it can easily pop with the right burst of color. A good navy dress can be a staple in your wardrobe for years.
Navy can also carry off a mod vibe when donned with a bold pattern. Former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, who normally shied away from busy patterns, made quite a statement in this epic zig zag dress. She’s walking alongside her sister, Lee, in 1970, who is wearing another one of my favorite looks – all white ; )
I also love that navy is a pervasive color in the equestrian world. My very favorite saddle pad is navy with a white monogram…I’ve just about worn it out.
If you think you might like a presence of navy in your home, I strongly suggest painting a cozy spot in Benjamin Moore’s Hale Navy. Back hallway, accent wall, entire study, bookshelves – the possibilities are endless. You cannot go wrong.
Remember this delicious room all lacquered up in navy? It’s about the 27th time I’ve posted it, but it’s still slices me to the core. Someday I’m going to have a shiny navy study…someday!
Speaking of classic style, prepare to meet a guest here on the blog who is a design celeb. I’ll give you a hint, it’s just in time for Wednesday White.
Keep your eyes open!!
