Color Combo: Deep Blue and Crisp White

These 5 photos show the timeless beauty of an elegant color pairing


A serene blue sky dusted with fluffy white clouds, the azure Mediterranean sea dotted with blindingly white boat sails, a shiny porcelain vase with cobalt blue Chinese characters—blue and white is a classic and classy pairing, whether in nature or in interiors.

For 2016, Crate & Barrel is giving the classic blue and white its moment. This season’s color signifies strength, wealth, and dependability, however, in skilled hands and combined with Crate and Barrel’s signature white-with-wood look, blue can just as easily be used to create a casual atmosphere. No matter how you use this powerful color, the result is always clean and fresh, calming and timeless. Here are some wonderful examples.

This inky abstract print by Kate Roebuck juxtaposes modern, cobalt-and-agate lines against the creamy softness of a tufted, upholstered headboard.

Makena table napkins in different naïve-modern patterns in dark blue and white will look fresh but bohemian when placed above shiny white dinner plates over wooden chargers.

Even plain white pillar candles and votives look extra special when placed inside these glass-and-cobalt-blue San Miguel candleholders. Arrange these in a row on a table for outdoor dining at night.

Even a rustic-modern piece like the Paloma Table can get a modern update when laden with lime-finish accent pieces coupled with weathered-blue Patina vases.

Available at Crate & Barrel, SM Aura Premier, Mega Fashion Hall at SM Megamall, and SM Makati. For more details, visit
