Elle Decoration: Rustic Blue Hues

Elle Decoration
I really enjoyed Red's take on the blue and white colour scheme for summer (think sun-soaked azure, sapphire and turquoise hues against a backdrop of brilliant white Greek buildings) but Elle Decoration's take on the colour duo is equally as appealing. In fact, this more rustic approach is a more adaptable palette as we head towards fall. Rustic linens and tactile textures in midnight blue and deep navy shades make the scheme warmer and not as saturated; whites, too, are cooled down into creamer shades. There's no denying that a classic blue and white stripe - saturated or not - provides instant style. I also enjoyed the flashes of burnt orange hues seen in their 'decorating' and 'homes' sections. What do you like about this rustic take on the classic blue and white scheme?


  1. Mr. Will Love anything in blue and white it is a favorite of mine and a forever classic. I did a post on this wonderful color today, Great minds think alike,Kathysue

  2. Hmmm...not the biggest fan of blue, and this seems a little too casual for me. It is summery, though!! Love your layout!!!

  7. No frills, no distractions. Just pure and simple. I just finished recovering an outdoor swing chair in blue and off-white striped linen. So refreshing for summer!
