Blue & White

This timeless combination never goes out of style. Handsome stripes paired with nautical prints and hand-rendered accents impart a sophisticated edge to any outdoor room. Choose your blue hues according to the mood you want to set. Darker tones create a more serious, tailored look, while softer shades lend a playful air. Layer varying shades to give depth, and try pale blue on the ceiling-the color not only recalls the sky, but also is rumored to deter insects.
