It would be hard to find a more loved combination than blue and white. The classic pairing – which manages to be both sophisticated and breezy – is a staple in Greece and the palette appeared on Chinese pottery way back in the 19th century.
When the two colours are combined – blue, calm and soothing, and white, clean and simple – you get the ultimate serene, tranquil space. The blue and white palette can be used easily as the main focus of a room, or just in accents (scatter cushions, vases and ceramics for instance). What we like best about this combination is how easily the rest of the room falls into place – natural rugs and carpets make an excellent choice, while a collection of creamy neutrals add a very ‘Hamptons’ look.
