There’s something clean and crisp about the combination of blue and white. Plus, because blue visually recedes this colour scheme is perfect for making smaller spaces that lack light feel larger and more open.
Try layering shades of light blue with plenty of white and touches of navy for a breezy room or use a rich navy with a clean bright white for a more dramatic space.
For modern spaces where a cooler feel may be desired pair with shades of grey and accents of stainless steel, pewter or silver. To warm up this colour scheme for a more traditional room use a background of warm neutrals, add fabrics in floral patterns and look for furniture with soft edges.
TIP: Painting the walls a light colour? Use a high quality washable paint in either matte or eggshell. You’ll be able to keep those walls cleaner longer without the need for frequent repainting.
