{Colour Cocktail: Navy and White}

He's thinking green walls; you're thinking grey walls. We've all been in those situations when you just can't decide on a colour scheme that you'll both feel happy living in. Well, next time this happens, instead of grabbing the nearest pillow and heading in for your first whack (!), pour yourselves a navy and white colour cocktail. With it's perfect blend of masculine statements and feminine notes, this little number will sort you both right out. The bedrooms below show how to rock this look: a graphic wallpaper marries perfectly with the feminine floral fabric used for the bedstead. Meanwhile, across the way in bedroom deux, the three shades of navy adds visual layering and interest into the calmer scheme; that's why I picked out the ampersand (below) - a bit of cobalt thrown into the mix can help spice things up!

  4. Such a nautical feel, don't know why. I guess it's that navy and white trim sailor style dress I had in the 5th grade :) Have a fabulous weekend.

  21. You always find the greatest objects for your Colour Cocktail features. That pendant lamp is gorgeous!

  22. Yes I agree. Blue and white is divine - feels fresh, contemporary and classic all at the same time. Am particularly fond of indigo - the depth of that colour mesmerizes me every time.

    Have a gorgeous weekend.
