There is nothing quite so fresh, crisp and alluring as a bed room dressed in blue and white. You can always mix and match your shades of blue, (periwinkle, ocean blue, sapphire, navy and light shades of ethereal pastel blues.) The same rule applies for all of your ‘shades of whites,’ using accents in butter cream, egg shell, bright white linen, as well as shimmering pearl.
I love this blue and white bedroom with the “woodsy” ambiance …It reminds me of being up at Big Bear Mountain in a cabin by the serene and beautiful lake.
There is nothing as alluring as a myriad of shades of white amongst a rich, regal navy blue. The monogrammed pillows add class and style…I love this bedroom. 🙂
Using blue and white decor is another way to repeat your color scheme and show off your creative personality, such as enchanting book collections, blue and white china, delicate lampshades and hand painted furniture. (Even a white chair accented with blue stenciled flowers would be striking.)
I love these quotes and sayings about the color Blue ;
‘Blue is seen as ‘trustworthy, dependable and committed.’
‘Blueness doth express trueness.” ~ Ben Johnson
“A morning glory at my window side satisfies me more than the metaphysics of books.” Walt Whitman
Wow, I never thought about nature helping me out with the decorating of my home this way! What a great idea! We have a large Mimosa tree outside our bedroom window and even though our bed room is not a magnificent and bright pink, it sure is a beautiful sight to wake up to, in the months when it is in full bloom!
Introducing WHITE to your soothing BLUES is a “match made in heaven.” 🙂 White is ‘color at it’s purest form.’ It signifies, ‘purity, innocence, wholeness and completion.’ No wonder combining these two colors brings forth such order, serenity, accord and charm. I think blue and white is a lovely choice for any season, as it is as warm as it is refreshing. I love to use a potpourri of shades of blue in my dining room. Setting a table with blue and white china, accessorized with different textures and shades of these two popular colors is such a bright, cheery change, for any season.
This blue and white bedroom is very unique as it takes a turn form the “norm” with it’s pale, greyish-blue hues along with it’s animated yet docile decor style. very refreshing!
