a penpal's point of view


I think it's safe to say that navy blue is my favorite color. 

If you've been following along with my Instagram and stories, you might have seen some peeks into our home here in Lodi! We bought a house last December and have been making updates to it slowly but surely. The biggest of which have been our floors and the kitchen. It's been an incredible process of designing and DIY-ing and hiring out and making decisions based on our goals for this house. I can't wait to share it all!

First things first, though.

Before we moved in we decided to paint every room in the house. It was very clear very early on that dark colors would win out. We ended up with a navy blue living space, dark grey bedrooms, and a blue-grey bathroom. All the darks! We chose Valspar paints throughout but the real show stopper is the navy... Royal Navy to be exact. It's my favorite and feels very appropriately named.

Here are some of my favorite dark room inspirations. The colors are so rich and fit perfectly with fall just around the corner. 

Is there a color that you favor in your home?
