The rich and regal colors of navy and gold are this month’s dynamic color combo of the month. These classic colors paired together make for moody comfort like no other. Combined they elevate any style from masculine, beachy, deco, or regency. In this post we will explore the many different looks of navy and gold, plus designer tips and picks from our design team at Jigsaw.
This color combo knows no bounds and can work well in most any room. Navy cabinets in the kitchen are refreshing and refined, as well as in the bath. For a modern twist on the color, use a bold wallpaper in a small bathroom to wow your guests.
Navy and gold in the bedroom can make for a happy marriage. Okay, maybe it takes more than that, but between style and color navy will bring a masculine touch while the gold brings on the glitz and glamour to satisfy the ladies. Laying the colors on top of creams or white will break up the dark color for a soothing bedroom in any style and create the perfect combination for an elegant hotel vibe or a traditional retreat.
Striking and bold or subtle and sophisticated all describe the personality of navy and gold in these living rooms. From a slightly masculine direction in a New York apartment to a light hearted beach-bungalow, melding these colors together make for gorgeous moody glam sophistication.
A great place to experiment with a fresh color combination is in a dining room. Lacquer the walls in navy and drop a grand gold chandelier for high impact to liven up you dinner parties. This color match made in heaven plays well in any type of setting from traditional to modern. The following image includes a navy rug with high back chair and a splash of emerald green that builds a creative setting for an evening of fun in the image below.
Want to get the look? Being classic colors, navy and gold are always pretty easy to find in the marketplace. Starting with a few foundation pieces like a navy sofa or arm chair and pairing them with a gold side table or coffee table is the perfect place to start; then starting building from there. Check out the great Jigsaw Designer picks in the images below.

You know how the saying goes…Go big or go home! Curtains in bold colors and patterns can add tremendous wow factor to a room.
The more patterns the merrier. Mixing different scales of patterns surprisingly keep the overall view of the room from looking too busy. While these rooms have a pretty mellow color pallet as a whole, the mixed patterns from the rug, pillows and curtain play together in a fantastically delightful rhythm.
Don’t be scared of mixing boldly painted walls and drapes in bright hues. Even working in the same color group like the forest green lacquered walls in the following image work perfectly with the chartreuse drapes. An interesting trend to watch is mixing blues and purples, turquoise and purple. Bold moves but very appealing to the eye.
Not that brave? Popping a neutral room with a bold drape creates an exciting atmosphere, and as the trends changes, it’s a relatively easy to update.
We love floor to ceiling yellow drapes for a bedroom shared with hubby, not too girly, but brings a lovely balance of masculine and feminine when paired white black and white or charcoal grey.
The trend we are loving right now at Jigsaw Design Group…layering roman shades in bold patterns paired with dramatic drapes in vibrant colors. This look layered in a room in subtle shades draw the eye to this artistic focal point in the space.

Shoppers are already out and about as the holiday season is upon us. With Thanksgiving around the corner and Christmas on the horizon, you might be feeling the need for a little update in your decor for arriving guests and cocktail party goers. In this post we will highlight some simple quick fixes with on-trend ideas to get your creative juices flowing before that juicy turkey arrives.
Quick fix number one: Throw Pillows. Easily accessible and at any price range, you can instantly update your sofa, settee, or bedroom with throw pillows in the season’s latest colors and patterns. We love throw pillows by trend setters like Jonathan Adler; his quirky light hearted flair will always be of the moment and typically a conversation starter.
Quick fix number two: The Throw. Get cozy on the couch this winter and snuggle up in a new cashmere throw. Treat yourself to the ultimate throw by Hermes. This luscious wonder will set you back about $1500, but oh how it’s worth it! For adding some texture to your space, a fur throw by William-Sonoma is great for the sofa or the bed.
Quick fix number three: The Rug. This change will make the biggest impact on the space due to its size, especially if you choose a bold pattern. How often you like to make changes will influence what you want to spend on your updated rug. A gorgeous high quality Schumacher rug is more of an investment, but will feel wonderful underfoot for a long time to come, and while always current in style they tend to be more classic providing more longevity. If you like to swap out your rugs as trends change, then a West Elm rug or CB2 could be a good option as seen in the image below.
While making only one or two of these changes will be refreshing, updating all three will feel like a new space. To get a little more milage out of your foundational pieces like sofas and accent chairs, try purchasing these high dollar pieces in neutral colors so updating with trends in color and patterns will always be easy with the above quick fixes.

As the clouds roll in this fall, do you find your space feeling a little dreary or in a funk? Elevate your style with a few punches of bold colors to brighten your space and boost your mood.
Even if you are a little color shy by nature, you can illuminate your space with bright pillows, throws and rugs; mixing multiple colors and patterns creates a fresh perspective for the winter season. Whether your walls and furniture are grey or beige tones this is a quick fix that can easily be changed out when you’re ready for a change. This allows you to get the trend without committing to a more permanent item like a sofa or even painting.
Colorful decor pieces on a neutral background always make an impact. Try selecting a piece of art that you love and find bold accessories, sculptures and other decor by pulling colors that compliment the art. A little goes a long way, so no need to overdo this look with too many knick-knacks.
Starting with white walls is the perfect blank canvas for creating a room that is a work of art. At Jigsaw, we love mixing bright bold colors, or strong jewel tones of similar colors in a bright neutral or all white room. This creates a sophisticated space with 70’s undertones.
A dining room is the perfect space for launching your bright new look. The place where you gather with friends and family and share your life. Adding captivating colors are sure to invigorate and excite making a great conversation starter.
This look is not limited by particular rooms, or even styles. It’s perfect in an uptown ladylike apartment, or boho chic haven. Why not apply these same ideas to the kitchen, seriously…who wouldn’t be inspired in bright airy fun-filled space!
We love to use bold color here at Jigsaw and hope you are inspired to add a little bright and bold into you life!!
