my search for the perfect navy blue wallpaper

Before I even had a timeline in place for my bedroom renovation, I knew I wanted to involve wallpaper. I wasn’t sure if I’d wallpaper one wall, all of the walls, or even the ceiling, but I needed to wallpaper something. The dining room and it’s navy blue wall has really set a tone for the rest of the house, a theme if you will. Now 6 months later, I’m still so obsessed with my navy blue wall that I want it to inspire my wallpaper decision. I swear, I might have looked at over 100 navy hued wallpapers… but I’ve made my decision, this stunning marble stripe by Rebecca Atwood.

With so many to choose from, I wanted to create a mini guide for you in case you’re on the hunt for the perfect navy blue wallpaper!

Part of my search involved finding the perfect pattern first and foremost. Did I want a navy blue wallpaper that was floral? geometric? nature-inspired? After looking for a while, I realized that I was most drawn to the wallpapers that felt more like a texture than a pattern.

I also really love wallpaper patterns that felt like they were gathered during travels around the world. Most of these have either a white or ivory ground, but with gorgeous shades of blue on top.

Or… did I want a wallpaper with a dark ground? And with metallic! Sigh. So many options…

If you’re looking for a navy wallpaper that’s also boho in feel, these ones have you covered (ha ha, see what I did there?).

I also considering going with a tropical themed wallpaper because when first bought the house, it had a ginormous palm tree in front of it! That sucker was at least 10′ tall. I had to remove it because of rodent issues, but it definitely made me consider giving the house a boho-tropical vibe like these wallpapers. I didn’t end up going that route, but these wallpapers are just too good not to share!

    Lovely! The Rebecca Atwood is such a great choice. Samantha Santana has some pretty navy wallpapers, too. I’ve been eyeing her contemporary florals, maybe the robin egg palm print for the space above our kitchen cabinets.
