Tile Color Spotlight: Welcome Summer with White Wash and Navy Blue

By Susanne Redfield

Summer has us in the mood to get nautical and refresh with the classic interior palette: Navy Blue and White Wash. This timeless pair can be incorporated throughout the entire home. In kitchens, bathrooms and outdoor living spaces bringing a fresh and breezy quality to any area–from traditional, modern, to bohemian chic. Below are seven gorgeous blue and white spaces sure to inspire.

Navy is the darkest blue, and in its true form appears almost black. Paired with white, navy blue provides a solid, grounding anchor, lending depth and elegance to the minimal bath below.

Small hexagons in a color similar to our Navy Blue on the floor add texture to this clean, functional bath as well as giving it a brisk maritime feel. While, crisp white tile and walls provide a light and airy feel.

There are fives hexagon sizes to choose from on our website to recreate this look.

The 1/3 off set pattern below gives the kitchen a truly modern sensibility. Natural wood surfaces, navy blue cabinets and appliances help keep the space from feeling too austere, adding an urban and pleasing palette, a surprise for the eye.

Navy paired with white is a highly versatile combination and works well in a modern style of decor. Use it on the walls when you want to go dark but not quite black. The saturated dark blue wall forms the perfect contrast against white trim and interesting architectural details. Navy and white are a revitalizing way to give a room more depth and interest.

Navy blue is a chic and consequential color, it goes masculine beautifully without turning somber. The dark blue conveys a solidity and strength, flawless when paired with white and black in a traditional setting.

In the kitchen below, the navy blue and white color palette goes boho, eclectic and exotic–All in one space! Brass hardware and a classic rug give the room a glowing, ageless warmth. Sheer, pristine, and refined, this kitchen captures uncluttered elegance at it's very best.

A white accent wall in a navy blue room adds depth. The nautical color combination, striped window shades, and brass accents tell the maritime story without being too literal in this truly debonair bathroom.
