Contemplate blue and white, suggests Carleton Varney

I love the classics, and you just can’t get substantially more vintage in decorating than blue and white. It is among of my beloved colour combos for Palm Beach residing.

And the nautical combo seems in particular great for summer time. It will make me feel of deep-blue seashore umbrellas and shiny-white beach towels.

Here’s a blue-and-white scheme for a residing area that is as pretty and stress-free as a day at the seashore.

Permit us start out by portray the walls a abundant sailor blue, complemented on the ceiling by smooth powder blue. All the woodwork will be glowing white.

People blue partitions will undoubtedly make your home windows glow. To emphasize that beautiful result, hang shiny blue-and-white-checked material from white rings on white-painted poles, and be confident the curtains are lined in white linen. Less than the curtains, hold roller shades of abundant sailor blue to match the partitions. These days, you can come across roller shades in a host of what are termed designer colours.
