Navy Blue bedding is popping up everywhere

As part of my ongoing quest for what is trending in home design, I take to the streets.  I love to do my power walks in the malls and downtown store fronts to see what seems to be trending.  This week I noticed everywhere I went I say navy blue bedding.  I love the rich tone!!! It is both traditional and contemporary at the same time.  Even if your bedding in neutral (tan, taupe of gray) you can add some navy and update the look in you bedroom.  Here is what I have been seeing.
