Navy walls, mustard accessories

A navy accent wall can add a terrific sense of depth to a room. Adding pops of mustard to your space in throws, pillows and other décor can awaken the personality in both tones. Consider using different shades of navy in the walls, furniture, carpets and drapes, with only splashes of mustard in the décor. You’ll find the depth brings out the mustard, rather than overwhelm it.

A splash of surprise

Perhaps you’ve fallen in love with a particular piece of décor that doesn’t match your navy and mustard theme. Not to worry; it’s a far more versatile theme than you think. Try a lighter navy accent wall, with deeper navy and mustard accessories. The sense of depth our shading creates will highlight your accent furniture beautifully.
