Classic Navy for a Sister!

Okay my sister in law loves navy. The problem she has when it comes to putting it in her home is that she feels like it can over power a room. Well, it can, if used the wrong way. So I am showing her how she can bring a little navy in her home without feeling like she has walked into space!

First start with a nice dark blue like Sherwin Williams "Naval 6244" Then add some glossy ultra white trim like SW "Extra White7006" and then your set.


get a nice dining table like this (she loves a "Perfect Circle").



Then you get some nice chairs but you get them in white like these:

or these

or these sinc she loves herself some arm chairs

and then you change out the fabric for something like this

(BUT MAKE SURE THE CHAIRS ARE WHITE)

or she can just get my personal favorite chair





Then you put a nice centerpiece on it like these arranged in a group:


or these arranged in a group and even better made into terreriums to let some of the out doors in


then the perfect chandelier


(IS SHE A BEAUTY OR WHAT?!)
Then for the walls she can add art like these with white frames for one wall

Then the large wall add ledges like these

and add family photos in black and white in frames like these (silver)

then for the french doors: hardware and treatment


and yeah add a plant stand with a plant of course!

And there you have it a navy blue room with a timeless style

Now if I only had photoshop on my computer!

If this don't make sense, blame it on the fact that its almost 1:00am my time!

Spectacular advice for free! I love the white drum, french doors, and white frame. And the simple center pieces. And I feel like these ideas are ones that I can actually accomplish! And then I could also take the curtain rod up much higher than when then actual trim is. Now finding the perfect curtain/drape will be a challenge for me. And I already have the plant stand (their black, should I be painting them as well). Love the chair ideas u suggested, but nervous about changing the fabric. WOW! Impressive innovated ideas!

Linen on the chairs would be nice, too. How nice of you to do her room! And I love those chairs, too. I might have to check out that navy--I love a rich, deep blue.
