Decorating with Blue & White

It’s a classic combo for interior decorating, and a perennial favorite. Blue & White.

The Blue & White palette is sophisticated, crisp, and versatile and brings poise to any room. It works with any decor and practically any style: provincial, traditional, modern, farmhouse, etc. You simply can’t go wrong choosing a blue and white color scheme, and something about summer months brings out the Delft Dreamer in all of us.

There are a couple of ways to incorporate “Blue & White.” As an accent, it lends a crispness and elegance to any room, and works with a neutral palette, jewel tones, pastels and brights. It’s particularly useful to add a summertime crisp & cool to the pale neutrals and creams found in so many homes these days.

Another classic use of Blue & White in design is to cover the room in the colors in various shades and patterns. Wallpaper, fabrics, pillows, accessories, rugs, lamps and more.  Perennially chic for those who love pattern and color.

Design Advice From Front Door Fabrics and Interiors 

As you can see, the blue and white scheme works beautifully as an accent pop with almost any color. It works in layered all-neutral spaces and in monochromatic rooms featuring a range of blues from pale sky to cornflower to cobalt. It is also beautiful grouped together as a collection, as a small accessory in a space swirling with other colors, and as a subtle accent such as a pillow or as a large scale statement such as a wallpaper.
