Color Crush: Navy

Time for another color crush!  Navy is such a great color, I just had to write about it.  It's so versatile and has such a wide range of personalities.  Preppy, coastal, sophisticated, moody, glamorous, you name it, Navy can probably do it - and in a great, gorgeous way.  Here is a collection of some navy images that I think will show you just what I mean.

Navy easily equals nautical, but this room is done in such a subtle way... It's just barely nautical.  Which I appreciate.  I think we can all agree that sometimes an understated theme is easier to love than a really over-the-top one.

I've been vibing on navy walls pretty hard lately.  These are some gorgeous examples.

This nylon tote is amazing.  I used one for my baby bag and it cleans up beautifully with a little soap and water.  (Just in case you were wondering...)

Love this.  I gotta have it.

Simply divine!

How about navy wallpaper?

I really love tattoos (on other people), I think they can be beautiful works of art, but this navy one BLEW MY MIND.  I'll have dreams about it, I'm sure.  (Not the GUY, ya'll, just the tattoo.  GEEZ.)

I hope you enjoyed this edition of "Color Crush"!  What do you think?  Do you rock navy in your clothing or in your home?  Is navy not for you?
