Blue & White

Blue and white:  A color duo that has remained an important design influence from the 14th century in China until today. Is it the crispness of the contrasts, the ease in which it blends with traditional, transitional and contemporary interior decor? Is it the way it indicates military command or the way a navy blazer and white trousers always looks right?

It’s all of these reasons and  more.

You can’t go wrong with this ancient yet up-to-the-minute design classic.You can use blue and white as a neutral, add any color you want along side it. Always present in the most elegant rooms, it transcends class and culture and is at home everywhere. It remains a staple in upholstery, wallpaper, clothing, exteriors and really almost everywhere and every price point.  It is masculine and feminine. Blue, cross-culturally the most chosen color, perhaps its the influence of the sea & sky that unites us all in our love of this soothing color.

If you are having a hard time finding a solid ‘look’ or style in your home,  blue & white is a timeless theme. ( just promise to not add any anchors, wall mounted fish taxidermy, or boat steering wheels to the room!!!)
