How To Add Simple Navy Decor Accents

Blame it on quarantine, but after staring at my home day in and day out, I got the major itch to switch.  After a couple of years of having black and ivory accents in our family room, I decided it was time to change the black to navy.  After all, “Naval” is Sherwin Williams official color of 2020!  Adding just a few navy accents was really pretty simple to do!

Since we have an ivory-colored sectional sofa in this space, it’s easy to play around with the decor.  Having that neutral background allows me to switch out the rug as needed (our rugs REALLY take a beating in this high traffic area).  The neutral furniture also allows me to rotate the throw pillows for the different seasons.  And with summer supposedly just around the corner, I feel like navy just brings that summer vibe that I’m so badly craving.  Trust me, there are sooooooo many cute blue throw pillow options out there to mix and match!

Another easy way to incorporate navy into this space was by adding soft cotton throw blankets.  I like to drape them wherever I can because someone is always wanting to cozy up on this sofa (especially the dog!)

I also mixed in some navy patterned and solid vases here and there to brighten up this room.

Lastly, I added some navy blue glasses to my mug racks to tie everything together.  I fell in love with this beautiful line of glassware and hope to keep collecting it through the years.

I’m really digging all the little changes back here and now just need Mother Nature to get on the same summer lovin’ page as me.

What’s your go-to summer accent color?
