Beautiful Blue and White Rooms: Top 8

Here are some of Southern Lady’s favorite blue and white rooms. From modern to traditional, every space does well with an appealing touch of these vibrant colors.

1. In New Light 
For this bedroom, the owners capitalized on the airy ambience of the residence with a fresh and clean palette of powder blue and white that exudes tranquility. “It’s pretty, feminine, and peaceful,” Meridy says. These qualities make it the perfect room for its double-duty function as a nursery for the homeowners’ granddaughter. 

2. Azure Heaven 
From the kitchen to the family and dining rooms, the main living spaces blend not only because of the open layout, but also because of their unabashedly blue refrain. The hue was layered throughout with traditional ginghams, fun animal prints, classic china patterns, and contemporary motifs. Despite the eclectic variety, the tranquility of the blue-based palette brings a sense of comfort instead of clutter, rest rather than disorder.

3. True to Form
This French home reflects contemporary appeal while staying true to its distinctive architectural identity. It also showcases a screened-in porch, which features a love of color—especially blue. The space was created  to display chic comfort with high-style elements that still encourage laid-back living.

4. Secret Hideaway
A piece of furniture with exquisite lines can create dramatic flair in an otherwise sparse space. This high-back chair from provides a cozy hideaway brimming with blue right there in the middle of a home. 

5. Warm Welcome
A thoughtful palette of blues and corals brings vibrancy to a guest bedroom in this Tennessee abode. A theme of linking geometrics are repeated on the linens, draperies, and carpeting to create a fresh and complete blue-and-white look.

6. Playing with Color 
Plump pillows and a cozy swing create the perfect lazy-afternoon perch. Arranged with a laid-back, mix-and-match feel, this blue haven is a perfect getaway for a weekend escape into your favorite book. 

7. Modern Marvel
A bright, fresh renovation awakens this contemporary Birmingham home from its decades-long design slumber. Select pieces from the Baileys’ previous house, such as the draperies and the navy-patterned armchair, found a home in the master bedroom. A curvaceous headboard offsets the strong geometry of the stylized campaign tables on either side. On the screened-in porch, a slatted wood wall offers both privacy and visual texture. 

8. Blue Cove
A scheme of beloved blue and white imbues this small-town cottage with comfort and charm. This master bedroom blends soft blue and white palettes with feminine flair. The result is a beautiful en suite that celebrates a delicate, more subdued version of the blue-and-white palette seen elsewhere in the residence.
