monday color combo


what can i say about today's combo? i mean is there another duo of prettiness that can be all at once coastal beachy, country cottage, hamptons compound, english manor, sweden's finest, upper east side regal modern and downtown traditional? i think not people. (well probably, i'm not curing cancer here-its just pretty colors). the REALLY cool thing about blue and white together is they kinda work as a neutral base. perfect on their own or as a base for another colorful moment to punch it up like yellow, brown, gold, pink, green or red! so happy monday and enjoy the soothing beauty of blue and white.

Ooooooooo...

We really need a new sofa and we were considering a navy blue one but I kept wondering if it was the most practical of colors. I think you just tipped me over the edge.

Any resources info on the bird pic? I can' stop staring at it.

My favorite, my house is done in almost all blue and white. I would love to copy that blue and white striped circus tent ceiling someday. MB

You made my day. I love blue. If you post about green, I will write, I love green. What a great way to show the colors.
I like the colors of Greece with all the white and blue there.
Thanks for the post.
Found it on Kirtsy Popular of all places. I will follow you and watch for fun colors.
Cheers
