“And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother”
1 John 4:21
Who does not like the clean and crisp look of blue and white? It simply looks beautiful with any other color…yellow, red, green, orange, purple, you get the idea! I love to incorporate blue and white into vignettes and tablescapes in my home. I thought it would be fun to look at this magical combination as I share a few photos from my house. Then we will take a tour of an entire home designed in this always perfect color combination!
One of my all-time favorite design books is “A Passion for Blue and White” by style-setter, Carolyne Roehm. She takes us on a private tour of her dazzling homes that she has decorated in blue and white…a must have book for any fan of this color combination!
If you are a regular blog follower, you know that I love color. Our bedroom is swathed in peacock blue, but I added white Euros with blue embroidery and Spode Blue Room plates on the wall.
“Whenever you place any color next to blue and white, something magical occurs: all of a sudden, the focus sharpens and the visual field has clarity and power.”
A BLUE AND WHITE HOME TOUR
via Traditional Home
The center-hall foyer boasts a bronze antique chandelier and an 1800’s table with antique English benches. Notice as we tour this home with its antiques and beautiful furnishings, the blue and white palette keeps it clean and fresh without being stuffy!
In the living room, a beautiful blue and white fabric dresses the window!
French bergeres are pulled up next to a lovely fireplace mantel. The gold mirror and crystal sconces add formality to the French blue grass cloth!
Rich wood furnishings, an opulent chandelier, and gold leaf ceiling make for a dramatic dining room. But, the indigo sisal wall covering and skirted chairs lend a casual feel to an otherwise formal space!
Do you like a blue and white palette for a room, or just adding a touch of it in accessories?
