One piece of caution I have for you regarding decorating in blue and white is to be careful not to overdo the blue. Blue is known for being a calming, soothing, relaxing colour, and it will automatically do exactly that to the atmosphere of the room you bring it into! Therefore, blue is best for bedrooms and bathrooms, where the atmosphere should be tranquil and peaceful. Choose your color and placing of the colour wisely. Too saturated of a blue can seem so low-key that it can actually feel depressing or saddening (hence the musical genre: “the Blues”).
Too dark or too much of blue will make a room frigid or icy, dark or dim. Blue is on the “cool” side of the colour wheel, along with green and purple, so it is best in rooms that are naturally warm, sunny, and cheerful. Shades of turquoise blue or sea blue are wonderful because they have a bit of yellow added to their blue, and yellow is a warm colour. With lighter colours of blue I like a creamier white instead of shocking snow-white because this also “warms” up the colour tone of the room.
White is known for purity, cleanliness, innocence, health, sanitation, and sterilization. For this reason, white is great in bathrooms, laundry rooms, and craft rooms! Add a bit of navy blue to your white and you’ll get an atmosphere that is pure, refreshing, and soothing.
