To add some variety to the white-navy composition, reach for furniture and decor made of wood or metal, such as a coffee table or a bookshelf.

If you want to use blue as a wall color as well, go for a lighter shade of blue like dove blue to contrast with the blue couch. If you decide to put a navy blue sofa in front of a dark gray wall, make sure the living room has a light-colored floor. A medium-colored parquet floor in oak or chestnut or light gray wall panels would work well. The rest of the furniture can have elements of natural wood or gold-colored metal. Luxurious, bright metallic shades look especially nice in interiors based on dark color combinations. So don’t be afraid to add some golden details, such as an openwork coffee table, a mirror in a radiant frame or an elegant lamp. Dark colors will be brightened up by green potted plants.

Japandi, one of the biggest home trends for 2021 , combines the Japanese love of order with the relaxed casualness of Scandinavian design. Although the style’s color palette is based mainly on gray, white, black and wood tones, a touch of navy blue certainly doesn’t hurt. Warm wood, ceramics and natural materials create a sense of arrangement in harmony with nature. The navy blue color of the sofa here is associated with the element of water. A blue sofa in the living room will bring variety to the interior without disturbing its harmony. A simple sofa with slightly rounded shapes or a plain model with wooden legs, reminiscent of retro-style furniture, will go well with a Japandi living room. Decorate the sofa discreetly with a few pillows in beige or hand-dyed linen covers.

To give the sofa a colorful accent, we usually use matching pillows. That is why the carpet is often kept in subtle natural tones such as white, beige and gray.

Geometric and abstract patterns as well as interesting carpet structures also set themselves off very skillfully.
