What color is your walls? What kind of floor do you have; carpet , tile, wood, polished concrete? Do you like solid colors, or strips, flowers light colors make small rooms seem larger. Dark colors can make big rooms seem smaller.

I think white will go with any color, good luck.

I would use a gold, cream or white, depending on your walls colors, etc. It's always nice to pull out a color in a throw rug, too.

Because your furniture is dark, I'd use white curtains or certainly light colored ones. perhaps you want to make them the same or similar shade as the walls. I wouldnt use navy curtains in that room.

If the furniture is Navy, think of Tan with a touch of Burgandy accents. You will have Americana and that is a nice warm color combo for the living room.

Gold color would look really classy with navy blue.

I have navy furniture, light cream tiled floors, light beige walls and a rug that is mostly navy with a hint of burgundy so, I opted for burgundy curtains.

Look at a color wheel. There are 3 rules you can follow for different results:

Choose two colors that are adjacent to navy on either side and add one or both of them.

Make a triangle inside the color wheel, with all sides being equally spaced, navy included. Use colors at the points of the triangles as complementary colors.

Use the color directly across from navy.

Choose solids or prints, whatever floats your boat!

Go blue! Why not? Stay away from royal though, might look odd, ha ha! I'd Choose from the medium light blues, or go with paint and 2" white wood blinds instead of drapes/curtains. You can always add a sheer later if it feels nakey! Start by typing 'blue room' 'blue room decor' 'blue room styles' etc. Into the google bar and clicking images. From the keep a notebook, purse size, with ideas, measurements, color names and brands, and on, and on.

Also, buy a small measuring tape to keep in your purse & measure everything! Add throw pillows and pull a color from them. Ross is great for pillows, I bought 4-45$ over sized, silk, down filled pillows for my sofa/love seat @ 9.99$ each (had to dig though)!

Also when you look at paint, grab any & every swatch that catches your eye, weed, and weed again, until you have ten or so. Tape them up on the wall a few inches apart. Lay them on the couch, carpet, and take notes! It's a big process, but it's a major high when it's all done and beautiful!

Good luck!

I'd blend with the wall color so as not to detract from the navy blue.

I am not a professional decorator, but I learned something from nature. Green is a neutral color. Look around; green grass, green trees. Green goes with everything! Green even goes well with the blue sky, so I think that green is the safest color of all, and not boring like beige or grey. (no offense to the beige and gray lovers - I tend to like gem tones.)
