Blue and white is a color combo that has stood the test of time for good reason. I’ve always loved how dynamic the pairing is; it inevitably looks both fresh and familiar in every context. When I was working on my new book, Blue and White Done Right: The Classic Color Combination for Every Decorating Style (Monacelli), I dove into the history behind the colors and found that their roots as a duo ran even deeper than I knew. From ancient Chinese pottery to Portuguese tiles to modern Danish design, blue and white has been favorite around the world for millennia. Wear it, drink from it, sleep in it, love it!
