One of my favorite color combinations is Blue and White. It's a color scheme that never goes out of fashion, and I'm happy to report that it's one of the latest trends in interior design today. Whether used in china and tile patterns, toile and floral fabrics or a wide variety of carpet designs, it represents age-old design elements from many centuries and cultures.
In the photo above, I love to see how the collection of Canton china was used as inspiration for the
stunning fabric on the upholstered chairs. Without the blue accessories in the photo below,
the all-white living room wouldn't be nearly as interesting. I think the pillows, lamps and pots add such sparkle to the design.
Blue and White can be used in many different settings. Maybe you like the comfortable look of denim slipcovers in the family room or prefer crisp blue tiles in a bathroom.
Do you prefer the look of a traditional bedroom with deep blue walls, warm antique furniture and the historic patterns of a woven coverlet?
Or , do you like the way the intense teal color in the bedroom below shows a modern approach to the classical style of the furnishings?
I especially like to work on kitchen renovations and the next two photos highlight the impact of the color blue used in these next two very different spaces.
A Blue and White color scheme is enlivened in this charming dining area with a mixture of fabric patterns on the chairs and pillows.
In the living room below, the soft blue colors of the sofas, chair and carpet convey a neutral scheme
with almost no pattern.
A friend of mine has decorated her entire house in Blue and White. In each room, she has used
different color variations of blue fabrics and accessories against walls and cabinetry of pure white.
It's comfortable and elegant, traditional and modern at the same time...everything I like in a home.
