Decorating with Color: Blue and White


When it comes to decorating for the warm season I like to create a space that both my husband and I will enjoy.  The space should be eye appealing and also have a cool feeling as well as inviting to family and guests.  Blue is a cool color and white is crisp clean and refreshing thus complimenting the blue.  Whenever I am working in the garden and then come indoors to a blue room that is accented with white I naturally feel cooler.

Many people like the color blue but I find that men really like this color. Maybe it is due to the baby boys nursery being decorated with the color blue? Not certain but when it comes to decorating a masculine home I have found that most men like the color blue.

Another color that coordinates well with blue is yellow. Yellow is a cheerful color and is a nice accent. When it comes to decorating a blue and white room I will add splashes of yellow color, enough to be eye appealing but this color should not overtake the blue or white colors.


Here is a blue and white living room set that I created at polyvore.com that will show you how to decorate with the colors blue and white. Notice I added a splash of color by adding yellow flower stems to the vase of greenery on the coffee table. These stems were found at bluefly.com you can also find yellow flowers for decorating at nearlynatural.com I also added the color yellow with a blue and yellow floral print pillow that I designed at my Susang6 zazzle shop.
