It’s a match made in design heaven.

Certain colors were destined to be together: black and white, pink and green, navy and gold?
Though unconventional, the latter duo has emerged as one of Pinterest’s most popular new decor trends, and we can’t help but love the way glamorous gold punctuates the strong, classic quality of navy blue.
There are endless ways to approach this dazzling fad. Here are 10 of our favorites.
A GILDED BAR CART
Give your cocktail fixings a pretty place to perch with a classically cool, golden bar cart. Style it against a statement blue wall, as Park and Oak Interiors did here, and it will immediately draw the eye — and the desire for a tasty drink.

A SLEEK OFFICE SPACE
A moody color palette keeps the vibe of this home office, created by Emily Henderson, contemporary. Dark blue walls set the tone, while subtle details like gold-plated desk legs and office supplies complete the look.
GLAM BATHROOM ACCENTS
This double bathroom by Leslie Cotter Interiors shows just how chic and minimalist a navy and gold color palette can be. Tone down your bold cabinets with elegant marble countertops and gold faucets, mirrors, and lighting.

Dark blue is the perfect color to use when creating an accent wall in any room, especially the bedroom. Alex Evjen of Ave Styles collaborated with Decorist to create this modern boho master bedroom, full of original pieces, including a mid-century-inspired pendant light.
A COLORFUL WELCOME
Greet guests with a fancy vintage gold doorknob, set against a shiny navy blue door. Choose a sparkling white paint for the door molding and line the nearby walls with chic white and navy wallpaper for a stylish entrance, just like Erica Burns did here.
What better way to pull off a two-tone kitchen than using navy blue for your cabinetry? It’s an unexpected color choice that still feels neutral and inviting. The geniuses at E. Interiors added gold faucets, lighting, and decor to give this particular design some depth.
DON’T FORGET LIGHTING
Bright white rooms are perfect for those seeking a clean and tranquil space, but small pops of color here and there never hurt. Cathy Poshusta of the Grit and Polish added in navy blue pillows against the white bedding and cream headboard, but kept the gold decor minimal by add a simple bedside sconce.

A RANGE OF HUES
From the velvet couch to the modernist painting, Marks & Frantz played with a range of blues in this cozy but stylish living area. Take his lead and experiment with more than one shade of blue,and then inject some regality into the space with gold underpinnings, like this grand coffee table.

PRECIOUS KITCHEN DETAILS
Designers at Grit and Polish transformed their old and outdated kitchen into a bright and airy cooking space. The top cabinets were kept white to match the walls, while the bottom set were painted a gorgeous navy blue and accented with gold hardware. The crisp white backsplash, along with a few plants, make for a lively but minimalist kitchen.
THE PERFECT VELVET SOFA
This spacious master suite — the work of Leslie Cotter Interiors, and shot by Tim Furlong Jr. — draws from both vintage design and contemporary decor. Add a few industrial touches, like these golden bedside lamps, and a little old-world charm with romantic furniture like this divine blue velvet sofa.
