Now that it's finally spring, the flowers are blooming and the blue sky is in site. If you want to lighten your color palette for the season, we suggest opting for a stylish combination of blue and white. Symbolic of the soft clouds in the sky, this pairing evokes feelings of a care-free spring day. Take a look at some ways to use the look in your own home:
- Curtains and drapes: Window fashions can certainly make a statement while creating visual unity throughout your home. When it come to picking the right hue, the opportunities are endless. For a more dramatic look, opt for navy or royal blue. In casual rooms, select light and airy sky blue curtains that can be pulled back to let the sun in.
- Fresh coat of paint: Many homeowners and interior designers are using light blue as a neutral shade, making it the ideal color for your residence. Try painting outdated furniture items with this trendy hue. Or, you can even paint your ceiling blue for a one-of-a-kind look that will set your home apart from the rest.
- Throw rug: "A bold patterned blue and white rug is a great piece to invest in. Roll one out in the living room, and your decorating will be virtually done for you," writes houzz.com contributor Laura Gaskill. "Solid furniture pieces in blue, linen and white make great mates, as do rattan and wicker pieces."
