In the Navy

I was sitting in our office/dining room this weekend and came to the conclusion that I need to paint it navy. There is really beautiful wainscoting around the bottom, painted ivory, and it would look so striking with a navy top hat, so to speak. The room is in the front of our house, just as you come in the front door to the right, and gets a ton of sunlight, so I don't think it would be too dark and cave-y. And even if it were, so what? But it won't, so there.

These are some of the rooms I was pinning like a madwoman this weekend, after inspiration struck. Let's just hope Tom is on board with such a dramatic paint job.


See? Wouldn't that look purty with the wainscoting?


An oriental rug in reds or oranges is a must. Does it look like that bed is floating in space above that rug, or is it just me?


I love lamp.


Those mid-century mod chairs are KILLING ME.


I could do blue and yellow...



Blue and coral...


Blue and Granny Smith green...


Ooooohhhh.....blue and GOLD....


SHUT UP, YOU BLUE LACQUERED BITCHEZ. With blue velvet, no less????!!! I just shat myself.

So whaddaya think of navy? Should I go for it? Happy Monday, yo!

Merci,
Shan

it's pretty. it's a color you don't normally see on interior walls, but it certainly does have a regal, royal feel. i love a medium dose like in the first picture.
