156 Hooked on Navy!

That is right!  I am so hooked on navy, that I brought it into our main living spaces!


As you may remember, we recently painted our living room to bring more flow to our upper level.  I know it was a shock to many, but we have been so impressed with the difference the gallon of paint made.  Wall to wall space for our kitchen, dining room and living room is about 24 feet wide.  By painting the rooms the same light color, it felt like our space doubled!  Although, after the painting update there was one thing that made it all feel a little lack-luster to me....


The creamy curtains seemed to just disappear into the windows and no longer supported the wall color.  With the green walls they offered a neutral balance, however, with the grey walls their impact was minimal.

Being a deer in headlights with my studio, I ordered a few fabric samples to bring in some color, pattern and softness to the space.  When I received the navy ikat pattern in the mail, I instantly placed it up against the wall in our living room and my gut said, "DO IT!"  I wasn't even really looking for fabric {I actually planned to just paint/stencil our previous curtains}, but it was just so right.  So I ordered twelve yards of the Premier Prints Raji Slub Premier Navy Fabric.  I always get nervous at this point, but I love that fabric.com offers coupon codes, free shipping and the ability to return your fabric if it doesn't work out {not paid to say that, just where I shop for fabric}.


When it arrived, we took a good week to measure, cut and sew up the new panels.  The process was pretty simple for a sewing rookie, however, I will say that a huge table and extra hands were helpful at times.  Four basic sewn rectangles later and we were able to use drapery ring clips to hang the new panels.


We used our previous curtain rods and hung the panels from ceiling to floor.  It makes such a dramatic statement and also gives the appearance of taller ceilings.


We also opted to do the same panels in both the living room and adjoining dining space to unify the feeling and flow between the two areas.


The updated panels brought in SO much warmth!  I can't get over the dramatic impact that the single change made to both spaces.




My favorite view...


The navy seemed to work well with the tealy blues and other accent colors we already had within the two spaces.  And although I was initially more giddy for the curtains to make a statement within the so-light-so-much-white living room, I was a little surprised at how much I loved them in the dining room as well.


And because no post is complete without a before and after, not only does paint make a statement, but apparently curtains do as well!


This morning when I walked up the stairs and entered the living room, my heart literally fluttered.  The room impacts my mood and I am giddy about how it is evolving!

The overall goal for the space was to only make a few minor changes to get a big impact.  We started with a gallon of paint, now added the curtains and the final stage is to address the white built-in with the addition of doors and a rustic wooden top.  Can't wait to see how that warms things up even more!

Navy is my current color crush, what is yours?  What one change have you recently made to a space that completely changed the entire feeling?

  2. I love those curtains. Great choice! I need to try out making my own curtains, but I am such a chicken.

  3. Mine is navy, too... which is weird, because up until recently I never cared for navy at all. I am slowly incorporating navy, turquoise and green into my own home and I love the change.

    Your living room looks totally different. So warm and tranquil... but elegant as well. Love the change.

  4. This looks fabulous! Our kitchen has a similar color scheme - white cabs, with navy rugs & curtains and teal accents! Love it and so easy to switch out the teal for a different accent color once the itch to switch it up appears.

    If I may make a suggestion, we just swapped out our switch plates to this line:
    http://www.amazon.com/Brainerd-126334-Architectural-Double-Switch/dp/B00368CH4U/ref=pd_sim_hi_3?ie=UTF8&refRID=1S6X158CJVHARPCD78TZ

    My hubby was able to swap out the actual switches for white instead of that builder dirty off white, and swap out the switch plates, so easy and super cheap! He was all about it and convinced me and now it makes such a difference we are slowly changing the switch plates and outlets room by room in the entire house :-).

    Just wanted to share my happiness each time I switch a light on or off! Your updates really do look awesome, such an inspiration!

  6. Looks great! Your gallery wall caught my eye as I'm thinking of doing something like that in my family room. Have you done a post on that project? I can't decide if I should buy the frames first or print the photos first?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I never did post about it as we did it way before I started blogging. :) I purchased the frames first {found them at IKEA} and then ordered the prints once I was sure of the insert size. We are hoping to get our gallery wall in our hall done soon, and because all of the frames are different shapes and sizes, we are just going to hang them empty first and then start filling them with photos and prints.

      xoxo!

  7. Love the navy accents.
    It is always a classic color.
    I am so hooked on Navy as well.
    I am a knitter and I gravitate towards the navy colors. Though I am trying to bring in other colors right now too.
    I just bought two sets of bedding for the two bedrooms in my home. Chaps and they came in either the navy or a deep red. I wanted the navy--that was not available. Got the red and I must say with navy accents it looks great.

  20. I love how you re-painted, but you are right the cream curtains no longer worked so adding the navy definitely does it! I really love navy (to wear also!) I'm now looking at our very plain curtains and thinking we need a change... and clever you, sewing your own panels, I'm very impressed :-)

  21. I absolutely ADORE the curtains! I literally gasped at my computer screen when I saw them (and then had to play it off to coworkers... "There was a fly. It scared me." ;) ).

Right now I'm crushing on "Watermelon" or "Poppy" color, light or dark. I just bought a white duvet color and a "Poppy" colored sheets, then added some pillows & throw in a lighter Watermelon/Poppy color. LOVE IT!!! Really brighten up our Master Bedroom. We have all dark furniture in there but get really nice light filtering in. Best decision I made...never thought I would buy a white duvet cover though. So worth it. Now I can change that up through the seasons. Can't wait to see what you do to your built-ins. Sounds awesome!!! :)

    1. So strange - wonder if they changed the name on their end or if I just copy and pasted the wrong title? I made sure to look at my specific order history and link from the item purchased and it is this one: Premier Prints Raji Slub Premier Navy - https://www.fabric.com/buy/0329814/premier-prints-raji-slub-premier-navy I have also updated the post. Thanks so much! And best of luck with your curtains! I am sure that the damask print will be equally as fantastic! xoxo!

  87. Where did you get the little table by your chair? It's perfect for what I need and haven't been cable to find one.

    1. Hello,

      The table near the chair in the living room was from Joss & Main, so it may be worth looking on Wayfair.com or checking out HomeGoods, as I often see a lot of the same items repeating from Joss and those home stores.

      xoxo!

  88. Love the curtains ! Did you ever do a window treatment in the master bedroom ? A while back you had mentioned it but I have never even seen a window in there. Just wondering what pattern/color you used.

    1. Right now we do not have any curtains in our master bedroom, just thick white blinds. I will be sure to share when we do add a little something, but it will most likely be something simple like a roman shade in a subtle pattern. xoxo!

  89. I noticed to added some accents to your IKEA entry cabinets (not the shoe cabinet, but the long one). What did you use? It looks great!

    Thanks!

    1. That is correct Chrystal, each panel was about three yards of fabric because we went ceiling to floor.

    1. Hello!

      I find pillow covers at many different sources, however, in this post they were from IKEA, Joss & Main, HomeGoods & Etsy.

  95. I love everything about your space! You're so talented. I'm especially obsessed with your colorful floral pillow. I saw in the comments where you got your pillows. Would you tell me where you got this one? And if you know of any similar looking pillows or fabric? Thank you!

    1. Hi Lindsay,

      The pillow is from HomeGoods and is really similar to the fabric print I used for the curtains which is this: https://www.fabric.com/SearchResults2.aspx?Source=Header&SearchText=Raji+slub&CategoryID=1d5f47dc-9991-4088-93f3-26a376046a5e

      I have seen other similar prints on fabric.com as well.

      xoxo!

  96. I love your spaces, each and every time, and I am so scared and not confident to buy items for my house for fear I wont be able to get the look I want. I have the basics, grey softa, white furniture, but now comes the scary part of injecting colour and pattern through curtains, accessories, pillows and side chairs. Stuff isn't cheap and we have a limited income and so I dont want to regret a purchase. I wish you could come and style my house. I dont know what direction to go in.

  97. Love those curtains! I may have to make some for myself someday...I currently have navy in my kitchen, which is open to my living room & I think these curtains would look amazing!

  99. I love this. So funny that I just found this blog and my living room is quite similar in color. I am trading my turquoise hutch (that had no storage) for a dresser I plan to paint a mustard color.
