If you are decorating a brand new home, you will probably want to try blue and white fabrics as upholstery. A blue and white chesterfield is very elegant looking, and it is also very classic. You can find blue and white curtains that look very nice on any room of the house. A blue and white ottoman will give you a unique, and comfortable, high place to sit.
You can find blue and white fabrics that come in solid blue, or you can find blue and white fabrics that come in stripes. You might also want to have blue and white curtains. If you put the curtains on an outside wall, they will contrast nicely with the blue and white upholstery. If you use blue and white cushions on an inside wall, they will seem to go well with the blue and white furniture.
There is such a variety of blue and white upholstery fabric available. Some companies make only blue and white fabrics, but there are also companies that produce everything in other colors. If you really like a particular fabric, but you don’t like any other color, you can always mix fabrics to your taste. For instance, if you like hot pink curtains, you can get hot pink upholstery fabric. Or if you are really adventurous, you can mix a black and white fabric for a very unique upholstery design.
Another way to decorate with blue and white fabrics is to match your blue and white furniture with a blue and white fabric print or with blue and white fabric covered fabric on your cabinets. In this way, every item of furniture will match. You could hang some blue and white cushions on the dinning room table. If you have a glass dining table, add some blue and white fabrics over the legs to create a nice pattern.
The dining room is usually one of the smallest rooms in the house, so you can get away with some interesting decorating ideas. You could go with blue and white stripes to border the chairs and table cloths. Or you could decorate with blue and white toile fabrics, cutouts of blue and white teddy bears and anything else that strikes your fancy.
If you have an accent wall in the kitchen, you can pull the blue and white decor into it by using blue and white fabric to accent the wall sconces. You can even use a blue and white rug in this area. If the blue and white area rug is small, you can use one of the many area rugs that are made to complement blue and white patterns.
The bathroom is another room that you can get the blue and white theme going. The blue and white scheme can be applied to the faucet covers, towels, soap dispensers and toilet seat covers. It also goes nicely on the wall hangings and shower curtains. The bathtub and shower curtain liners can also be blue and white to blend in with the blue and white tiles. Add blue and white curtains and you have a nice bathroom for any blue and white enthusiast. Bathrooms are a great place to add a little drama to the home.
When you are planning out your decorating ideas, think about the blue and white fabrics that you already own. Use these fabrics to pull the whole room together. Don’t forget about throw pillows and accent pillows that have blue and white in them. You can find blue and white throw pillows at most retail stores. You can also use blue and white accent pillows for any blue and white area rug.
