4 Blue & White Ideas To Freshen Up Your Winter Decor

 Today I’m sharing 4 Blue & White Ideas to Freshen Up Your home For Winter!

It’s no secret if you’ve been visiting the blog in the last two years that I have a sudden obsession with blue and white. I love how it agrees with my favorite home color, green.  It mixes well and has such a classic appeal.  Traditional homes have used blue and white for generations in their home decor and furnishings.  It also pairs so well with a cottage aesthetic.  From pretty flower motifs to gingham to stripes, it screams English Cottage Style.

I added several pieces to my family room.  These on my coffee table along with a book add a blue and white touch to my neutral/ green space. You can shop a slew of blue and white porcelain on Etsy (LINK).

In the above photo, you can see blue and white porcelain on the mantel and also a piece as an end table.

I love the combination of the stripes with the floral.  Both being in the blue and white color scheme makes it not too loud.

I’ve used a combination of stripes and florals in my family room. These ottomans from Target (LINK) echo the stripes on the pillow cover.  My floral throw blanket (LINK) across the back of the couch is a larger print using the same color palette.

Another vote for mixing classic blue and white with other accent colors is to look out your window or examine your color palette in your garden. Blue and white stools with the green island above echos what you see in nature.

My green dresser (LINK) a DIY project from a few years ago is a pretty pop which works beautifully with the blue and white porcelain and stripes in this space.

Wrapping this room in blue even in a softer shade will make a statement in your space.  I recently went blue in my dining room and really love the timeless look adding blue to the walls gave this space.

I also really love how removable wallpaper can improve the look of a space!  You can see this gorgeous wallpaper by Indigo Design Co (LINK) in this post.
