• Since the whole of last year was spent renovating, i barely ventured into any stores looking for clothes but this year (as i’ve mentioned before) is another story and i developed a small wardrobe-filling fixation. Lately i’ve been drawn to lots of navy blue, which i’m loving.

    i’d LOVE a coat like this one and am definitely going to be on the look out for some suitably navy nail polish. I’ve also been seeing lots more navy blue in interiors…

    I popped into my friend Suzie’s house last week and she’s painted the wall of her entrance hall navy blue…it looks fabulous don’t you think?

    i love the contrast of the bright white skirting against the blue wall and the red poster too

    these other images of blue hued interiors are inspiring me

    such a clever idea to take a series of bandanas and turn them into a wall feature, pic from this blog

    So far i’ve only done the navy blue thing with certain fabrics, i’d love to paint a wall or maybe a piece of furniture?

      OMG – u have just hit another of my weak spots. Luv the images, as much as I love the colour. It is makes the most awesome back-drop colour and does so much for the other colours around it. Timeless beauty.

      I just bought the most gorgeous navy dress from Mango. Navy was also the color of my bridesmaid dresses. Now if only I could convince the hubs to let me paint a room navy…. Oh Navy, how I love thee.

      Navy rocks! And although I generally go black, it is a gorgeously glamorous alternative. BTW, Essie has a beautifully rich navy called Midnight Cami.
      Lovely pics.
