Inspiration Board For Your Living Room

It’s Navy, Baby!


Today is Day 11 of our 31 Days to a Beautiful Home and I have created a navy & creme inspiration board for your living room. I’ve chosen pieces from 3 of my favorite places to shop…West Elm, Ballard Designs and Ikea.

I love the color navy. It’s such a great alternative to black…and I love black!

Navy is a color that is elegant and stylish. Plus, you can mix navy with a variety of other colors. Of course, it’s classic with white, but it takes on new life with bright colors like pink, green or yellow. Adding a pop of color can sometimes make all the difference. Check it out…

The neutral sofa is a good foundation for the room. You can completely change the look of the room by changing the pillows. I’ve placed three pillows with two different patterns of navy and some softer shades of blue on the sofa. This adds interest to the sofa and they coordinate nicely with the rug and chair.

Speaking of the chair…I love the navy blue chair! What a statement piece! The rug also ties the sofa and chair together and the additional pattern adds more interest to the space.

I’ve chosen to add a pop of lime green by incorporating a garden seat as a side table. Great accent tables are not always “tables.” I like that the side table is round and the coffee table is rectangle. I love mixing shapes in my rooms. I never have all square or all round of anything. I like to mix it up!

Gold has become a favorite of mine lately, so of course, I fell in love with the etagere and the sunburst mirror. I love the light, airy look of these pieces mixed with the heaviness of the wooden coffee table and the dark chair.

And finally…I love the little navy owl! Owls are so hot right now and you can see why! How cute is this guy?! He’d be great on the coffee table or on the etagere.
