Navy and mint room combination - Tobi Fairley Collection - Living With Color Designs

It’s been a busy but great week at the High Point Market.  I’m really excited about sharing some beautiful new products which will be available for your home.  I have to start with the new bright and bold collection launched by Tobi Fairley in a partnership with CR Laine and Sochier Marin.  I have to give it my “Best New Collection” award for it’s stellar use of color, attention to detail, and clever design.

It’s funny how I can get all excited about a fabric.  This little fabric is the best adaptation I have seen of a classic print updated for a new generation.  I’m calling it chinoiserie for kids.  Playful and fun but classy and classic.  What better way to seep a little design savvy into their heads then to splash it all over their bed or crib.

I am truly “Mad about Navy” and I mean in a good way.  This is not really a new passion for me but one that has been a long time coming back around to me.  When I first built my house twenty years ago I painted our study Navy.  Now, just when we are ready to change up the study, and I have renewed my love for navy, we will be moving the navy into another part of the house.

I thought I would give you a little sampling of some of the hot products for all around your house, all featuring deep rich beloved tones of blue.  The wonderful thing about Navy is that it acts like a neutral, it pairs beautifully with so many colors.  Make a statement in the bedroom with the bedding above which is paired with tangerine, from Pottery Barn.

I love these pillows from Villa Home Collection.  Use a few on your living room sofa to change it up for the new season.  Don’t forget that your porch areas may like a little love after the summer season, spruce up with a little Navy.

Who wouldn’t love this Kings Grant Chair in cobalt by a great little company Taylor & Burke, started by two Carolinian sisters, Julianne Taylor and Lauren Burke.  They offer unique designs, quality furniture, and keep an eco-friendly focus. Tuck one of these at each end of your dining table or pair two together to make an cozy conversation area with a lot of style.

Navy Kelly Desk Barclay Butera- Living With Color Designs

You can learn more about this piece, the Kelly Desk, in this earlier blog post about Barclay Butera .  His collection was filled with plenty of Navy inspiration.

Kate Spade evidently is also “Mad about Navy”.  Many of the Kate Spade dinnerware collections include this color.  If you are local you can check these out at the newly opened Belk Home Store at Friendly Shopping center.  Check out the cute Navy and Green combinations in her About Town and Wickford collections.

And I will end with one of my favorite Navy combinations, Aqua and Navy.  This Palm Beach bedding collection by Eastern Accents is also from a Barclay Butera collection and is available through Living With Color Designs.

Hope my “Mad about Navy” post doesn’t have you feeling a little blue because it is meant to get you all excited.  Have a wonderful weekend.   –  Marianne
