Blue and white ooze serenity and cleanliness. This power duo is set to brighten up any room, but it looks especially dreamy in boudoirs and bathrooms.
You can achieve a multitude of looks using this colour combination – from a Mediterranean-inspired oasis to a modern-rustic scheme. It can feel timeless but also very on-trend. You can pair it with a range of patterns and materials. Wood furniture and gold accents, for example, work particularly well with blue and white.
To help get your creativity going, we’ve compiled an inspiration gallery brimming with ideas.
Let’s take a look, shall we?
Blue and white bathroom ideas
If you’re looking to add pops of blue and white to your bathroom, you can start by swapping your soft furnishings and accessories with more colourful options, such as small storage solutions, mirrors, or towels.
But, if you’re ready to fully commit, why not refresh your bathroom walls with the help of blue and white tiles? You can mix and match monochromatic metro slabs to update your shower or vanity area. Or opt for boldly patterned solutions and pair them with terracotta tiles for a holiday-inspired look.
To take your wall coverings one step further, choose paint and waterproof wallpaper in a similar hue to the tiles for a cohesive blue and white bathroom scheme.
Love a bath? Then why not paint yours in a lush teal shade to get that tranquil retreat feel whenever you’re enjoying a bubbly soak. These days, you can find sanitaryware in a myriad of colourways, such as Burlighton‘s Bespoke basin and toilet in Enchanted Blue – perfect to complete your blue and white bathroom.
Furniture is another great way to welcome these calming colours into your bathroom. Dark navy and white are ideal for achieving a timeless look while muted tones, such as soft blue and off-white, work well in country-style boutique hotel schemes.
Calming bedroom ideas
Your boudoir should feel like a calming sanctuary – shades of blue and white are ideal for creating a sense of peace.
An easy way to introduce these relaxing hues in your bedroom is through bed linen drenched in sea blue shades, white translucent table lamps, and a mix of decorations in the same soft tones.
However, you can go for a complete bedroom refresh with the help of a new statement bed frame, Mediterranean-inspired shutters, and patterned wall or floor coverings. As an alternative to bold blue and white wallpaper or murals, you could use off-white plaster and limewash paint to add interest to your walls.
Whether you want to go big or small with this colour palette, make sure to include plenty of natural materials in your scheme, too. Think wood or rattan furniture, tactile jute rugs, and stone side tables. As for finishes, brass and gold make rich shades of blue really stand out.
