Keeping it simple and neutral, adding brown provides the perfect complement to a navy sofa.

It looks natural and helps make a blue living room look a little warmer in tone.

Adding other shades of blue feels cohesive and simple. It also takes the guesswork out of pairing random colors to your navy sofa.

2. Light And Airy

A navy sofa anchors an all-white living room, adding visual interest and drawing guests towards the seating area.

To enhance the light and airy feel, incorporate white planters, wall hangings, and sheer curtains that allow plenty of natural light to flow in.

3. Yellow Accents

Sometimes navy looks too dark and gloomy and needs vibrancy. Adding yellow accents achieves a youthful design that keeps your living room looking fresh. 

Balance the yellow decor with other shades of blue, gray, black, and white. 

4. Colorful Bouquets For Pops Of Color

In this chic living room, the navy blue sofa really stands out, doesn’t it? Its rich, velvety texture adds a layer of luxury and anchors the room’s design beautifully.

The sleek gold and glass side table next to it not only ups the luxury factor but also holds vibrant vases of fresh flowers, adding a pop of color.

5. White, Teal, And Pink

When your navy sofa looks teal due to its green undertone, pair it with other teals, pinks, and white tones.

Keep the walls white so that the teal and pink really stand out in your living room. If you own many books, turn them with pages facing out to create a more neutral palate. 

6. Boho-Chic Design

Boho-chic design isn’t going anywhere soon. One way to liven up a boho-chic living room with different colors is to add a navy sofa. This brings in softer, cooler tones than the ambers, browns, and black tones. 

Some staple elements of boho-chic design include rattan wicker light fixtures, geometric patterns, and leather poufs.

Poufs tend to be a bit expensive, so one way to bypass the expense is to purchase an unstuffed pouf on Amazon. Then fill it with leftover shopping bags or unused t-shirts. 

7. Monochromatic

When you like to keep it simple, opt for a monochromatic color scheme. Find a paint color that looks close in tone to your navy sofa, and then add some navy panel curtains. 

Monochromatic color schemes tend to look dramatic. If you want to tone it down a little bit, just add an appropriate accent color. 

8. Maximalist Gallery Wall

In contrast to the beautiful Scandinavian minimalism this decade, a new trend called maximalism has emerged.

Maximalism celebrates many different colors, wall hangings, and plants. It’s controlled chaos with excess personality. 

This design style is ideal if you have an extensive art collection and limited wall space. Create a gallery wall to showcase your diverse pieces. For a touch of uniformity, consider using the same type of frame for all your art prints.

9. Relaxing Beach House

A navy sofa looks perfect in a beach house because it complements the blue ocean and sky. Pair your navy sofa with light wood tones to mimic the sand.

Even when you can’t be on the beach on rainy days, you can enjoy a beachy atmosphere inside your own living room!

10. Cozy With High-Pile Carpet

If you prefer coziness above all else, place a high-pile area rug in front of the sofa.

Purchase a navy blue rug to match your sofa or soften the room even more by buying a cream-colored rug. Add to the coziness by layering plush throw blankets and plenty of velvet and faux fur throw pillows. 

11. Black And White Tile

Checkered patterns, especially in black and white floor tiles, are back in style. To add more visual interest to a black and white pattern, add some navy with a navy sofa. For more color, bring in real potted plants.

12. Fun Accent Wall

When you want the navy color to stand out in your living room, add an accent wall.

An accent wall featuring polka dots, geometric shapes, or chevron patterns adds a modern and fun touch. To keep costs down, opt for peel-and-stick wallpaper that’s easily removable.

13. Classic Vintage

A vintage velvet navy couch tends to look bright and almost royal in tone and brings elegance and class to your living room.

For more vintage elegance, look for gold-embossed mirrors, tiffany glass-style lamps, and vintage books to stack strategically around the room. 

14. Light Pink And Baby Blue Accents

Navy and light pink go together so well that its pairing will probably never go out of style.

The combination looks like pink sand beaches and old Hollywood glamour. For a more modern spin on this color combination, introduce baby blue accents as well. 

15. Scandinavian Minimalism

To keep a minimalist living room from falling flat, choose a navy sofa instead of a beige or white one.

With bare walls and minimal decor, it’s difficult to make a living room feel inviting. Adding in the navy makes a living room feel lived in and intentional, even with minimal decor.
