Classic Wednesday, white and blue

 
Very few color combinations is as classic as blue and white. A combination that has been used since the time of the Ottoman Empire and in places as exotic as Morocco, it's been adopted by American Design since the longest time. Blue and white is a timeless combination of which one never gets tired, because as someone recently said: “it's in nature.” That is probably why we never get bored of it. Below are a few images of white and blue rooms dating back as old as 1966 to prove it.
Inman Cook 1966
Mario Buatta 1977

Gorgeous. I never tire of blue in all it's shades either. I love that vignette of the painting leaning against the window.
