Festive Ways with Blue & White...Coastal Inspiration.

Use seasonal pillows and throws to add festive accents to a room. Bring in more color by wrapping packages in coordinating paper and hanging wreaths with generous lengths of ribbon.
Coastal touches such as nautical ornaments and stockings with images of sailboats highlight this tiny pool house’s year-round decor. Tiny spruces in red pots decorate the coffee table, and swags of garland wrap around the loft area’s nautical rigging.
Use coordinating wrapping paper to match gifts to your holiday decorating scheme. Here - above - Boats and ship’s bells ring in the season, and primitive accents lend folk-art flair to this living room.

I love that at almost any - if not all - times of the year you can punch out one of my favourite decorating palette combos of 'Blue & White', and by adding another accent & highlight colour it can as easily go from Easter to Christmas holidays. Here I found some gorgeous rooms that celebrate Christmas with coastal inspiration using a Blue & White palette, creating a welcoming, fresh & stylish environment.
For more fabulous blue & white, and many other festive stylishly coordinated decorating & gift ideas check out the cover that inspired this post - Pale Blue & White with splashes of Cherry Red [with craft paper brown] on Australian Home Beautiful, December 2009 issue. Enjoy xx
