Color Surge - Navy Walls

Lately I've been drawn to rich navy-hued walls.  Usually, I'm not a sucker for dark color on the walls (especially blue!), but my design appetite is changing...the saturated color is just so beautiful.  As Autumn approaches, deep jewel-toned colors become more and more popular in both design and fashion.  They're a great way to cozy things up a bit.  Even though blue is a "cool" color, when it's dark it seems to have a "warming effect".  Sapphire, indigo, cobalt, navy - I love the dark blue names too...

Here are a few of my favorite dark blue rooms:

The blue in these rooms has this quality of making everything look so collected - and the gold and white accents are so stunning with it.  I think I may have to give this deep hue a whirl in my downstairs powder bath.  Officially, putting it on the ol' project list...

What do you think?  Would you ever venture into these depths of color?

Yes! I think the navy accent against white is actually stunning. Dark colors make me a little nervous, but used as Emily Clark and Marcus Design did above - it's just absolutely stunning. Great examples!
