Forget brown, black, white, or beige — when it comes to neutral colors, give me the deepest, darkest blue. From midnight blues to indigos and deep navy, this shade has so much life to it and infinite variety. Pair it with Winter white for a cool, elegant look, or mix it with rich chocolate browns for a warmer, cozier feel. I'd also love to see it paired with a hot pink, fuchsia, or electric yellow. However you choose your color mix, here are some great midnight-blue pieces to get you started.
One of my favorite pieces from Anthropologie is the Henri Dining Chair ($170, top row, right). Made in Italy, this chair would look amazing with a contrasting cushion — I'm thinking Joel Dewberry's Heirloom home decor fabric collection in dandelion would look particularly smashing.
I have to admit I'm completely lusting over the Milo Baughman Velvet Sofa ($14,000, second row, right). This incredible 1970s-era sofa is built on a wrap-around chrome-plated steel frame and has been newly reupholstered in a decadent blue/gray velvet. It's the ultimate elegant lounger.
For a lighter touch of this versatile shade, add a set of Vintage Navy Blue Glassware ($8, third row, middle) to your collection. Use them for entertaining or everyday service; each piece is dyed in a beautiful navy-blue color.
