Color Inspiration: Decorating with Blue and White

Inspiration in Blue

When someone says the words “decorating with blue and white”, each of us will have an image that pops into our mind – most likely based on our personal design preferences or experiences.

Those images won’t all be alike, and that’s the great thing about blue and white (or any color scheme, for that matter) – there’s more than one way to spin it.

Here are 5 blue and white looks that we’re loving right now:

Clean and simple.

Pair white walls with a neutral sofa and chair with clean, modern lines. Simple indigo and white accents keep the look fresh and light.

Just a hint.

Go neutral with white textured brick walls and furniture with a soft gray wash complimented by white chairs. A large piece of canvas art lends the perfect subtle touch of blue to the space.

Warm it up.

Whites don’t necessarily need to be bright or crisp. Use warm whites complimented with interesting blue and white patterns for a softer, more traditional, look.

Commit to blue.

Most of the time we think neutral when it comes to sofas, but when you stop to realize how many colors can be paired with blue you quickly realize that it can act as a “neutral” as well.

Our Janet sectional proves that it can be a wise choice. Pair it with the Grayson Swivel Chair for a geometric spin on blue and white.

Of course, we know that blue is trending, and so is white, but did you know that florals are making a comeback?

An accent chair or some pillows can be a fun way to add some floral personality to your blue and white space.

    Love the simplicity behined all these ideas. I think it’s easy for people to forget how neutral of a color Blue actually is. Oh, and I’m in LOVE with the Ikat pattern chair—sassy and lots of fun!
