There are so many ways to make a navy stripe fresh and interesting. Here we have variation within a framework, 6-7" dark stripes broken up by thin white stripes. This could make a great hallway runner and easily incorporate several new colors.

We can do all kinds of custom color but sometimes it helps to start with a favorite sample and make adjustments.
This client had a cream and blue sample of ours, FWT-33 Coast (below left). She wanted to replace the blue with purple accents. She gave us paint chips, fabrics and poms so we could not only match the purple she wanted but also the neutral tones in the room.
The winner was Option 2 with it's cool tones.
Weaving the Twill. By alternating 3 shuttles of yarn, we can create a little accent of purple.
In the photo below, you can see the purple dominant group just above Aurora's shoulder. One shuttle has no purple and the 3rd shuttle( in the foreground) has just one thin purple and the rest are cream and white.
Here's the finished rug that came in at 6'3" x 9'0" on our shop floor. The colors combine to create a nice hazy feeling.
After finishing this Darby Cape Blue 8'x 10', we had some extra warp so we created new color ways. These two new guys, Darby Bronze Lapis and Darby Smoke have rich, winter colors.
The vertical warp yarns play a more active roll when you have a dark background color. We love the sparkle of gold.
