Mixing black and navy blue is one of those things I've always known not to do. But after spotting the photo above in one of our house tours, I've grown more intrigued by this particular recipe for mixing neutrals. Could it be I've been lied to my whole life? Can dark blue and black really work together in the same room? Let's hear the arguments.
Then take into account the black buffet in this vintage modern dining room, offering an anchor and interest to the monochromatic blue artwork and textured wall.
The black artwork and artifacts on Boon's Newbury Port Blue bedroom wall play off each other well. Nobody would dare accuse this kid's room of being moody or dramatic.
Consider, too, how the addition of a blue sofa and pillows affects this black-and-white living room. Against all odds, this deep, cool shade somehow gives warmth to the room.
In conclusion, please draw your attention to this tranquil bedroom. Even with it's basement windows and moody neutrals (the brightest shade is a dusty gray), this bedroom manages to remain bright and welcoming.
Lets hear from the jury: Would you ever mix dark blue and black together?
