Re: Is Dark Blue the New Black?

I think blue is blue and black is black and they don't play the same. I like them both, depending on the context.

Love the blue with the fire place and this room!  I'd use a widely spaced plaid with white background upholstery over stuffed arm chair.

All of these pictures are lovely and beautiful examples of how to use blue.

Blue is my favorite color, and I think that I could even make #12 and #15 work.

Re: Is Dark Blue the New Black?

When I was younger, blue was my color.  Now I have all but eliminated blue from my life.  Don't care for it in home decor but these interiors are attractive.

 

Some that really stood out:

I would agree. Navy, to me, is  much more attractive and versatlle than black.  I really like most of these rooms. Darks only work for me if there is a lot of light coming in from outside.  I especially like the blue with the brick.

As a general statement, I prefer black to dark blue.

I really like most of these photos.  I can definitely live with the new (again!) blue trend.

Man plans. God laughs.

Not a fan of blue .... blue is too "blah."

I love navy blue, but some of these rooms have too much.
