A blue and white bedroom

Simply Soothing

Let a weathered interior speak for itself. Blue and white suits a simple space without detracting from the wood’s natural beauty.

Classic New England Style

“There’s no better way to say ‘Nantucket’ than with classic blue and white.”
-- Anthony Baratta, designer

Blue Checks

Bring back decorative ceilings. Though they fell from favor after the 1960s (think trellis wallpaper), they’re back.

Instead of spending thousands on a hand-blocked paper, you can create your own ele­vated art with painted stripes, collages composed of colorful botanicals -- even nautical charts. When in doubt, go for less. A little embellishment overhead will garner plenty of attention.

Cozy Corner

"For some reason, I always come back to blue and white. Whether it’s a river, lake, ocean, or bathtub, I love the peaceful and cleansing effect of water."
-- Carol Murphy, interior designer

Blue Print

Repeat a pattern on multiple applications for maximum impact. A large-scale print in light blue and white looks dramatic and graphic but still pretty and inviting.

Coastal Character

“There’s no color that’s more coastal than blue. It’s a constant reminder of the sea on one of those it-doesn’t-get-any-better-than-this beach days.”
-- Sarah K. Johnson, Coastal Living, market editor

Stately Bunk

For a yachtlike look, dress a built-in bed with navy and white. Brass fixtures and polished wood accents enhance the stateroom effect.

Clean Lines

Put a contemporary twist on tradition. Pair more-familiar furnishings covered in navy with bold, white, modern pieces. The graceful lines will ensure the room still feels homey.

Easy Clean

Opt for a look that’s both sophisticated and casual. While stripes and embroidered details lend a touch of formality, slipcovers with tie-backs keep the room relaxed.
