Part of being a designer is playing design style advocate when it comes to couples and their own particular views on style. I have sat through many of design meetings with couples that cannot agree on a colour, style or both.
The common colour that bridges both men and woman, younger or older clientele is Navy Blue-every.single.time. This colour pairs beautifully with greens which is also a great bridging colour amongst couples. Navy is best option for high traffic sofas that need a little colour while still standing the test of time-like this one we used in our clients living room:
We have also successfully used Navy as a kitchen island colour-it fits both modern and more traditional style decor:
Arguing over what colour will work for both of you? Navy is the answer. I promise.
