The colors we use in our home are a reflection of our personalities and can affect our thoughts and moods every day. That’s why decorating with colors that make us happy is so important. Color trends will come and go, so it’s best to decorate with colors that are pleasing to your eye, that way your home will always be beautiful.
One of my favorite colors to decorate with is Navy Blue. The color blue is considered calming, relaxing and serene and is said to even bring down blood pressure and slow respiration and heart rate. Who wouldn’t want to add such a beautiful color to their home?
House&Canvas Furniture Paint in Rich Navy has always been one of my favorite colors to work with. It’s so velvety, smooth, and rich, just like its name!
Here are 6 ways to add some Navy Blue (or your favorite color) to any home with just paint!
1 – Paint a statement piece of furniture: The easiest way to add a pop of color to your space is to paint furniture a fabulous pop of color. If you paint alllll your furniture one color, it may be too much. So, pick a piece or two in your space and paint away. Imagine painting your office desk Navy Blue!! Or just your bedside tables. Gorgeous!
2 – Paint your Kitchen Island: Painted kitchens are sooooo on-trend right now. Which is great, since it’s a cheap and easy way to update your dated cabinets on a budget. But painting an entire kitchen navy could be a bit much for some. A great option is to add a pop of color by painting just your island. You can use House&Canvas Chalk Finish Paint on cabinetry. Just remember to give your surface a good clean beforehand to remove any grease or grime! Topcoat with wax or any water-based poly!
3- Paint your Bathroom Vanity: Don’t just stop at painting your kitchen island, paint your bathroom vanity too!! Navy Blue is one of my most favorite colors to work with because it matches all metals. Faucets, light fixtures, and hardware can be expensive to change, but luckily the navy matches everything! – brass, nickel, chrome, black. It goes with it all!
4 – Create some Wall Art: Adding some new wall art is a great, inexpensive way to add your favorite pop of color to space. You can save even more money by DIY’ing your wall decor. You can often find canvas’s on sale at your local craft store and paint them in your style. Or, add a fun, personal, unique touch by giving your little kids a canvas, a paintbrush, and the paint color of your choice!
5 – Paint some Accent Pieces: Maybe painting a large piece of furniture in your home is a little too much for you! Don’t worry!! Take baby steps and try painting a few small pieces first. Lamp bases, picture frames, vases, side tables, trays, or even planters. Furniture Paint can be used on a multitude of surfaces like metal, glass, wood, or even mirror!
6 – Paint a Feature Wall: Painting just one wall in a room is a quick and easy way to add a striking pop of color to your space. Bedrooms are a great place to paint a bold color on the wall behind your headboard. Navy Blue is so neutral, that you can really pair it with any other wall color and mix and match complementary accent colors to match any decor.
