Colors That Complement Blue and White

Although I like solely blue and white rooms, I prefer blue and white rooms that use a third accent color.  I find that the addition of the third color makes a blue and white room more interesting, less predictable, and more visually appealing.

There are several colors that work beautifully with blue and white.  Here are some attractive blue and white combinations with complementary third colors:

Blue, White, and Green

This is currently my favorite combination. It is fresh and natural looking:

Designer Sarah Bartholomew uses the blue, white and green color combination frequently, as seen in the three photos below:

Blue, White, and Red

This appealing combination has patriotic overtones (from an American perspective).

Blue, White, and Pink

This combination is a preppy and fun look.

Blue, White, and Yellow

This combination can look either traditional or modern, and it often has a French country or cottage feel.

  1. Of course, I am a fan of the yellow accents, but the orange looks great too! One of my favourite fabric houses, Romo, often mix blue and orange to great effect. Lovely inspirational article x
