Navy and Yellow Color Trend

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

One of the most superior and elegant color combinations with a timeless appeal and transcendent elegance is navy and yellow which never fail to draw attention.  While navy is powerful and strong, yellow is its cheerful opposite complementing and contrasting without being too overplayed.  Together this modern color combination is easily adapted into any living space and decorative style.  For example, in the modern bedroom, upholstered beds like Florence platform bed or Squaring platform bed by Bonaldo are a great starting point, both of these can be accented with Ultra Royal Blue viscose rug by Henzel and an original modern art painting by Jordan Carlyle.  As an accent chair, the ultra-trendy Richard III by Philippe Stark for Cerruti Baleri is a must have and so is the Fenice Tiger murano glass table lamp by Costantini Pietro.
