A Blue and White Color Scheme Continues to be Classic

I absolutely love the combination of blue and white and have for years.  The photo above, taken in my home sunroom/photo studio,  shows my long-suffering blue and white rug that badly needs replacing and I haven't found one that I like nearly as much.  Blue is such a great color and I thank Ralph Lauren for keeping it alive and fresh as a standard of fine decorating.  I remember about eight years ago when I was shopping at Calico Corners Fabrics and eying a drastically discounted blue and white toile fabric.  The salesperson told me that the color was just not fashionable and they had a hard time selling it.  I purchased the fabric and used it to have club chairs in this same room reupholstered - they still looks great!

Today, I am happy to say, you cannot pick up a decorating magazine that doesn't have quite a few blue and white spaces and I am finding lots of inspirational photos on pinterest.

I like blue because it is soothing and cool.  It just always looks crisp and works so well with other colors - particularly yellows.  It is not hard to find some great blue and white eye candy - here are some!
