Consider blue and white, says Carleton Varney
A chair is upholstered in a blue-and-white version of Braziliance, originally designed by the late decorator Dorothy Draper.

I adore the classics, and you cannot get considerably much more vintage in decorating than blue and white. It is among of my favorite colour mixtures for Palm Beach front living.

And the nautical combo seems especially best for summertime. It makes me consider of deep-blue beach front umbrellas and vivid-white beach front towels.

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

Permit us get started by painting the walls a rich sailor blue, complemented on the ceiling by smooth powder blue. All the woodwork will be sparkling white.

Those blue walls will absolutely make your home windows glow. To emphasize that charming result, hold shiny blue-and-white-checked material from white rings on white-painted poles, and be sure the curtains are lined in white linen. Under the curtains, hold roller shades of loaded sailor blue to match the partitions. These times, you can come across roller shades in a host of what are termed designer colors.
