Wednesday: Do it Yourself Challenge!

When it comes to décor, there is something striking about the appeal navy blue and gold. The elements nestle together the way champagne and luxury intertwine, in order to create a bold and extravagant statement. The colour gold can stream through accents such as: Pillows, lighting, or even furniture legs. The navy can be incorporated through window treatments, upholstery, or a deep navy blue accent wall. Are accent walls still in? Glad you asked! It all depends on how it’s done.

If you are to do an accent wall, the first rule is to make your choice of colour the anchor that holds the room together. The wall should be where the eyes first glance, and where the accessories play as an extension to the ensemble. It is also very important to balance light with dark by making your wall the focal point, but contrasting it with light colours. Take for instance, the ceilings and adjacent walls in the photograph above, which help to brighten up the space and makes room for the “drama” of navy blue.

Even if you do not own anything navy blue or gold in your room, but you like the visual appeal, start with the wall. Spray paint chandeliers or table lamps gold, and find a blue and white throw to toss over the edge of the bed. Another way to create the colour contrast on the wall is the use of wall art! You can marry the theme of your room by hanging art that gives hints of the colours you want to repeat throughout the space. The concept of white frames on a navy wall captures the essence of contrast, creating a bold and sharp statement.

You can have a room that looks like it should be on the cover of “Style at Home,” on a tight budget. All you have to do is see the vision, and get creative. I hope you all enjoy your evening! Happy Wednesday everyone!
