I have had a navy blue living room for 35 years and in two houses. In each house, these was a lot of woodwork, which I had painted white. The first time I painted the room navy, the painting contractor tried his best to talk me out of it. The painters were completely silent as they worked, completely convinced that this was a disaster. They admitted to me later that they were wrong. I love my navy blue living room now even more than I used to because I have added pieces that I love to the room, such as an oriental rug, and the deep color really sets them off. All I can add is, if you have enough contrast, don't be afraid to try it!

Navy blue? A classic color. A lotta Ralph Lauren and that is a good thing in my book. I do not believe it is over used. Thumbs up. Good choice.
