I love to discover paint color pairings. My most popular pin is this paint color pairing. I have a lot of blue and white decor and I found that green is a great color add-on. It compliments the blue and the green just adds a pop of color. 


The easiest idea to add green to navy decor is to add plants (either real or fake). They freshen the space in the spring!



Plants are neutral in the decor. They don’t compete with paint colors or furniture. Plants never argue with this creamy paint color on most of my painted accessories.


There are no power grabs between plants and navy.

Potted faux plants like this Target find is happy to take centerstage to my favorite clock on the Hale Navy window sill in our dining room.

It’s funny how we land on color combinations. While I was prepping for this kitchen nook update, I moved this olive basket to under the kitchen window.

I loved the look so much I snapped this photo.


This was a fun project, and as a blogger,  I snapped a few photos. Later when I created the post I noticed how great the herbs looked against the navy window treatments.

Plants, real or fake, give us fun shades and textures to play with during the year. So unlike some colors, navy and green and plants play nice year-round.

When we purchased these swivel chairs for the family room I found these pillow covers on Etsy. I love the blue and green combo.

Finally, in my office, this fiddle leaf fig plant, which has made multiple appearances this year, looks so regal against the Hale Navy walls.

In our family room, high above the floor, this plant looked great against the navy walls.

If you are a fan of navy and green I bet you have navy and green plants in your decor and you never thought about it. That’s because plants never need to make backhanded comments to their navy counterparts.

There is no jealousy which might explain why they are so fun to photograph.

What are your favorite color pairings?

  3. Laura, I rely on greener because it never fails me, or looks sad in pictures. I can relate to your starting a post then changing direction. It’s a good trait to be able to quickly navigate in a different direction. Your hale navy walls look even better with the green/blue combo.

    Thanks for sharing at the FWF party.
