Capturing the Timeless Beauty of Blue and White Design

Leslie Joan Interiors 


For decades or more, the ultimate sign of elegant beauty in home design has been a blue and white colour palette.

That’s something that we love so much about Hamptons-inspired design—while it always feels fresh, it also leans on a traditional foundation.

Blue and white interior design doesn’t just capture classic and timelessness, but it also reflects the sky and sea and natural beauty in general. Nature is a pivotal point of inspiration for Hamptons design.

There are so many ways to use a blue and white colour palette, and you can choose the shades that speak to you the most.

That might be deep, dark navy blue for drama and a nautical feel.

There are also lighter shades of blue, like our favourite duck egg blue that feel like a newer take on blue and white.

Duck egg blue still takes its cues from nature, but in a soft, serene way.  This calming and appeasing colour scheme is often used in the bedroom.

Even with a simple blue and white colour palette, you can utilise texture and pattern in visually exciting ways. It may be a classic colour combination, but it never feels tired.

Not only does blue and white work beautifully in patterns, it makes a striking combination for a buffalo gingham that utilizes these contrasting colours to an amazing effect.

The blue and white combination is a universally liked palette.  It really works in any space and with so many decorating styles and rooms.
