Trend alert: Blue and white

Trend alert: Blue and white

Blue and white is the perfect color combination for Spring, since it evokes carefree days involving placid lakes, cool pools and clear skies. Let's face it: New York City suffered through one very long and gloomy winter, but the sunny days are now upon us! To turn your home into a spring oasis, take a look at some stylish ways you can take advantage of the blue and white trend:

  • Lighten up your window fashions: Now that it's spring, you don't need heavy drapes. Instead, opt for light and airy curtains. You can choose sheer curtains which will let the sun into your home on a gorgeous spring day, or you can try out curtains in various shades of blue, ranging from pale blue to cobalt. The opportunities are endless!
  • Refresh your furniture: "Give your flea market and yard sale finds a new look with a coat of paint," suggests Houzz contributor Laura Gaskill. "Consider using all-natural milk paint — depending on how many coats you apply, you can allow some of the wood grain to show through, giving the furniture a fun, chalky, vintage look."
  • Use stylish accents: Make your room come to life with an array of homey accents, such as throw pillows and ceramics. To stay with the blue and white theme, you can opt for nautical motifs that already display preppy stripes in this gorgeous color combination.
