Mark D. Sikes predicts navy, and this fabulous Center City home obliges.

Design blogger Mark D. Sikes was asked by House Beautiful what he thought a 2014 home design trend would be, and he said, “Navy blue will be a big trend for 2014. I’m seeing a lot of the shade on the runways, on the streets, in editorials, in chic interiors… I actually think everyone will get it in 2014.”

At 2221 Locust Street, the owner got it even before 2014, painting the living room walls a rich navy blue framed by white molding. It looks terrific, but everything about this restored 19th-century townhouse is terrific, from its high ceilings and two kitchens to its historic archways, built-in wooden closets, pine floors, and leaded glass windows. There’s a garden out back and access to a rooftop deck as well. And needless to say, the location is phenomenal.


The listing says the home was just appraised for 1.635 million, making the current asking price a "major value purchase."
