Why Blue Works
What is the perennial appeal of blue and white? It’s easy and fresh on the eyes, as evident in this outdoor room.
What Makes It Work
The double whammy here is that this outdoor room has a blue-and-white palette plus a glider! There was a glider on my grandmother's porch, and for a while I owned one too. It took me back to childhood every time I sat in it. And I do love the life preserver hung over the glider. It's always nice to have artwork over the sofa, but it's difficult to find something durable for outdoors. The life preserver has a great shape and provides just the right nautical note.
