It's so hard to show in the picture, but it is the perfect combination of navy, coral and light taupe. Here's a close-up shot:
Again, pictures never capture the true color! So frustrating. I'd love to try to incorporate this color scheme somewhere in the house. Currently, the only room that is a blank slate is the office. I'm not sure if the Mr. would be down with it, but I thought I'd give it a try! So a little searching on the web and I found these two colors:
Here's the deal, the office is small, and it doesn't get the best light, so I'm conflicted over whether or not to paint the wall the dark navy or the coral. The taupe on the dress is almost an identical match to the color already on the wall, so I could just keep the existing color and use the above colors as accents.
So here are some inspiration pictures:
Dark walls. Hmmmmmmmmmm. I do appreciate the color contrast. The tree wallpaper is pretty awesome! It's from Urban Outfitters.
This picture proves that dark walls does not shrink a room. The white and navy contrast is great!

I pretty much love everything about this room. The headboard is unbelievable, the quatrefoil pillows rock, and the coral stools at the beds' end are a sweet touch.

I love the design on the back wall, not to mention everything else. I wish I could incorporate a little office nook in the closet! It would save us so much space.
Coral walls! And the rug could totally play in to a modern nautical room if styled correctly.
Love, love, love the headboard! Not exactly navy, but I had to post this pic!
It's really not like me to be this bold (quite frankly, it might not even be very bold to some of you) but I am just really drawn to this color scheme. I think because it reminds me of being on my boat and snorkeling in the ocean.
Using these pictures, I found some great items online that would go perfect with this theme!

What are your thoughts on this color combo? Too bold? As far as walls, what would you do? Navy, coral or light taupe?
