BLUE AND WHITE: TRENDY & TIMELESS

November 10, 2016

You don’t have to be up on interior design to know that blue and white is trending heavily right now. Restaurants, retail stores, hotels and homes are chock-full of blue and white décor. It’s a palette consistently used by interior designers and decorators, regardless of their aesthetic. It’s a timeless combination that always seems to work. Whether you prefer minimalist, traditional, or eclectic design, there will certainly be room for blue and white in your space, and here’s why.

  • Blue is a universally soothing color with positive associations

  • Blue and white are compatible with every color

  • Blue compliments natural and wood tones

  • Blue and white patterns blend seamlessly

  • Blue and white can be used at any scale- small or large, without becoming overwhelming
