The Simple Delight of Blue & White

I feel I would be remiss if I did not post about blue and white. While all of my favorite design bloggers cover it enough for me, I need to say my praise to the classic and timeless color combination. I thought about doing a post on my favorite triple color palate of blue, green, and white, but I decided to pay my respects to the perfect pair.

Whether it is a porcelain piece or pretty fabric, blue and white will always incorporate elegance into a space. Here are beautiful blue and white designed rooms and resources that will surely inspire you to add the delightful duo in your home.

Immediately this picture makes me think of the old adage- something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. The chair pattern has a modern feel next to the blue and white porcelain beside it. Designed by the #blueandwhiteforever fan Mark D. Sikes. Photo by Bethany Nauert.
