Blue connects us to nature more than any other color. But it also connects us to worlds of possibility. We gaze out at the sea, fantasizing about exotic lands, and stare up at the sky, contemplating the limitless universe. Just like the universe’s unlimited potential, blue knows no bounds,” writes designer and author Phoebe Howard in Coastal Blues: Mrs. Howard’s Guide to Decorating with the Colors of the Sea and Sky (Abrams, 2018). Incorporate blue and white into your kitchen and dining area by sticking with white cabinetry but adding splashes of cerulean, azure, and aquamarine on everything from curtains to counter stools, backsplash tiles to bowls. When designing with this classic color combo, you can’t have too much of a good thing.
