Instagram inspo for the colour navy

Dreamlike and calming, navy blue has the ability to softly transport you, just like a slow-rolling wave in the deep sea. Unlike powder blues and brighter shades like cyan, navy evokes introspection and a yearning for deep connection. Maybe because of its presence in the night sky, it gives a sense of wonder as to what else is out there in the world and beyond. Having been a staple in homes and wardrobes for hundreds of years, navy is a tried and true tested hue that's likely to be colouring our world well into the future. Take a look at our expedition through Instagram to see the how navy is making people and places more beautiful.

The galaxy is full of mysteries unknown, but little by little, NASA is discovering incredible pieces of it, like the Lagoon Nebula.
