blue and white

my blue and white obsession started many years ago...
i never tire of it.

i love an all white background with blue and white stripes as the only pattern. it's perfect for coastal decorating and reflects the sea and sky outside. it makes a room feel more spacious and has a calming and uplifting effect at the same time.

some dreamy blue and white coastal inspiration for your enjoyment...

ralph lauren's boat shaped seating area



  1. I like the combination very much. But it always depends on where and how these two colors are used. Near the water they fit fantastically. But white&blue home in the hills or in the countryside looks funny. And of course it depends on the shade of blue.

    Thanks for this post!!!

  2. I love blue and white. Anywhere. All shades of
    blue. Beautiful photos. Inspiring. Love Ralph Lauren's deck over the sea. Wow.

  3. This colour combo never ceases to amaze me. I love it.

  4. I have always loved blue and white. Even though my colours have changed now, it is definitely a classic. It is something I will come back to for sure. Leahxx
