A classic combination – Blue and white décor still charms amid new trends and old traditions

Classic interior design never let it go completely, especially in the South. The blue and white color combination is a classic. But in the last decade interiors have been infused with muted tones and streamlined accessories, and the blue and white color scheme has taken a backseat in national design. No more. Today these classic colors are being touted by designers near and far as a way to warm up any abode.

“It always has been in favor in our Southern interiors, and recently I’ve noticed its popularity in all the major design magazines,” says Bill McMillin of McMillin Interiors. “Classic items like blue and white porcelain go with any room, no matter what the color scheme is.”

Indeed, homes for centuries have boasted the blue and white combination, and design pieces that use it are easy to incorporate today. From traditional porcelain to modern rugs and lighting, there is a blue and white accessory appropriate for any décor. Here are several pieces that demonstrate the power of this ageless look.
