If you ask me, navy is sadly underused in the design world. I love it because it pairs so easily with warm neutrals, and can quickly go from cool and stark to cozy and inviting. This sofa does the trick when balanced with cheery taupe in this adorable room. The layers of the colors are so well-balanced. The coffee table, pillows and textured walls come together nicely, and the sofa’s dark intensity is brought back in the room via the mirror, wood trim and dark crown molding fomr the adjacent dining room. The sofa’s white trim makes its classic lines pop with a bit of modern whimsy against the dark upholstery. I can’t help but imagine vacationing in this charming waterfront cottage every fall. My cure for the cold weather blues — add some navy!
