There’s nothing wishy-washy about darker blues, such as midnight, royal and navy. They have a presence that demands to be noticed. Thankfully, these shades can be used effectively to underpin a wide range of schemes, from classic to maritime, sophisticated and country – even mid-century modern. And while we may refer to them as moody, the only mood they evoke is one of calm.
Here are three easy wasy to make a case for the bold and the beautiful in your home – deepest blue!
Navy and white are a classic combination that will never date. Go for pared-down simplicity and you’ll be on a winner.
Opt for refined elegance
Couple darkest blue with timber, then for a look of time-honoured craftsmanship and character, introduce hand-tooled leather trunks or boxes.
Rock a contrast
Complement handsome moody blues with pinks, reds, corals, greens and yellows. But it’s a good idea to avoid primary colours so the outcome isn’t too kiddie.
