In Honor of the Royal Baby: ROYAL BLUE!

In honor of the newest arrival into the royal family, let’s talk about the on-trend style and versatility of ROYAL BLUE.

After all, it’s one of Pantone’s top fashion colors of the year – and there’s no doubt that dark blue is HUGE in the world of decor right now.  One of my favorite combos is royal blue and raspberry:

The truth is, dark blue is the new black – it’s a versatile neutral that can stand the test of time. I mean, what color DOESN’T work with royal or navy blue?  For more color inspiration, follow my Pinterest board, I Heart Color and check out my Color Video Workshop to learn how to choose the right colors for your home.

Loved this post! That second image really caught my eye as I am in the midst of adding Greek Key trim to some drapes.

All this week I have written Royal themed posts in honor of Prince George.

Love your blog!

Love any shade of blue. Glad by house is in line with the latest trend, because I love my blues.

That is my favorite combination- navy and pops of raspberry. Love your pictures- especially that first living room- gorgeous!

I purchased a royal blue couch for my first apartment after getting a ‘real adult life job’. Five years later, it is STILL my favorite aspect of our house! We’re starting the hunt for a new sofa, and I’m leaning toward another of the same hue!
Loved the post!
