Nautical. Neutral. Navy.
Written by: Karen Bradner
Thanks to its connection to sailor uniforms in the early 19th century, this indigo dye inspired color was initially dubbed marine blue, but soon changed to navy blue, a name that has been firmly anchored in our color world ever since.
Recently, navy has been heavily enlisted to cover walls, furniture, and floors in our homes. It’s being called the “new” neutral, but in reality navy blue has always been a neutral. It can swing classical or contemporary.
