Color Obsession: Navy and Plum

Navy and plum make a deep, sultry combo.

Navy and plum make a deep, sultry combo.  What I love about them is how they are such a saturated.  So many people want blue or navy for their interiors which is so typical to see paired with white or red — things that are basic.  I want to be able to counteract with something else, and plum does that.  It doesn’t create a high contrast, but the two colors pair well because they are on the same level of saturation.  Part of my obsession is my serious desire to get away from what everyone else is doing.  Yes, an interior is an investment, and some people are braver than others.  I see so much similarity and safeness as a designer, so when I am working on projects with repetitive palettes, it is nice to jump outside the box.  With a color like blue that everyone loves, I like the idea of being original and pairing it with something that isn’t the norm.  Add a little spice!
