Decorating My Bedroom Using a Navy Blue and White Color Scheme.
I am feeling blue lately… as in the decorating color scheme of navy blue paired with white.
I have always loved the crisp cool color, it is right up there color love wise in my mind with turquoise, purple, chartreuse, and pink. I am sure you have been seeing hints of this from some of my latest posts where more blue is showing up all around my house.
The color blue, navy blue to sky blue just makes me happy, but I never went with an all navy blue and white room before. I think that is about to change.
On a recent trip to my local furniture store I came across this bed on the showroom floor. I love the overall feel of it. Modern, classic, simple. Not too much fuss, but still warm and inviting. I took the photo with my phone so the colors may look a little funky, but since I saw it I can’t get the bedding out of my mind. You know how that is when you see something and you just keep thinking about it, right? It doesn’t happen to me a lot, but when it does, I listen.
Now that I have most of the big home improvement/updating projects done around the house (at least for now) I have been trying to focus on the decorating aspect of the living room and my bedroom.
I haven’t posted about my bedroom very much since I haven’t done much with it.
You may remember when we moved into the house that the bedroom walls were painted yellow.
I am not a fan of yellow walls and my first update to the house…
…was painting the walls a soft blue color.
Since then I have restyled an old headboard I had, painted the ceiling fan white and added white window treatments…
…but that was about it. I took this photo two years ago right after painting the walls and it still looks just like this today. I had bigger projects to take on and was content with just getting the walls painted light blue. I didn’t really have a plan and didn’t want to decorate just to have it done. I wanted to see how we used the room, how the light comes in, etc.
Now I am ready and have a decorating plan where I really want to add a punch of color to the room in the way of navy blue and maybe a few hues of blues along with it. I pretty much know what I want, but have still been searching for inspiration.
Navy Blue and White Bedroom Decorating Inspiration
I already have some navy blue and white bedding, but could use new shams.
I love the blue channel quilted shams with the mini pom-poms that are right against the headboard in this photo.
This photo sums it all up very nicely. I like the casual no fuss feel.
In this navy blue and white bedroom the navy accent is more subtle, but I love it all the same. My master bedroom bath vanity is grey like the one in this photo. It makes me happy to see so I know that once I start making changes my master bedroom and bath will coordinate with each other.
So this week I am in planning/research mode. I am waiting to see how much the duvet cover costs that is on the bed that I love from the furniture store. If it is too pricey I may be making my own if I can find a similar fabric. I am still searching for just the right area rug. I will keep you posted on my progress.
