We’ve Got the Blues
Let’s just call it the ‘unofficial’ color of the year. Although it didn’t claim at top spot on color forecasters’ lists, navy is suddenly everywhere. Whether mixed with hot pink in updated nautical motifs (think anchors and stripes) or paired with burgundy shades that echo Pantone’s Color of the Year–Marsala–this classic hue has certainly made its way back into our hearts and homes, in both accents and statement pieces that become the focal point of the room.
Peacock can be considered navy’s peppier cousin and is a great way to add interest and life to your décor. Peacock paired with beige or white looks both clean and fresh and alongside gray takes on an air of rich sophistication. Although they may be getting the most design attention, the current blues repertoire isn’t limited to navy and peacock. Periwinkle, cobalt, slate, indigo, and lapis are all on-trend hues to explore and can be found among American Leather’s array of leather and fabric choices for your custom-created furniture. And if you just can’t commit to that peacock sectional, consider American Leather’s ottomans, benches, and even pillows—all small touches that can make a big color statement in your space.
