My current love of white interiors has me on a perpetual quest to find the perfect accent colors for those dreamy white spaces. And, blue is definitely one of my favorite companions for white. It’s refreshing and crisp, like the view of a beautiful sailboat on a relaxing beach. Of course, picking the perfect shade of blue is a must. And, I have to say today’s color trend is one of the most gorgeous shades of blue I’ve ever seen! It’s a bright blue that’s verging on periwinkle and reminds me a lot of the blues of Santorini. Pantone calls it ‘Little Boy Blue’ and it’s part of their PANTONE Fashion Color Trend Report for Spring 2018. I have so many fantastic design ideas to show you using this bright blue hue. Let’s have a look!
I love how this blue and white patterned wall tile pops against the white finishes of this bathroom. And, the brass accents and tiny touch of hot pink are awesome!
Speaking of periwinkle flowers. How beautiful are these? This whole table arrangement is just stunning. The perfect inspiration for a color palette, I think.
If you would prefer to wear this color trend, this maxi dress would make a lovely addition to your wardrobe. I love the red floral print of the fabric.
Here’s that simple blue and white combo I was telling you about. In all it’s glory!
This image is a color lover’s dream come true. The bright yellow window against a ‘Little Boy Blue’ colored wall is a show stopper.
Blue and white. Need I say more?
Here’s that yellow and periwinkle combination again. The yellow is a bit more subdued in this design but still very lovely.
‘Little Boy Blue’ is a great color to show off that dark summer tan.
Hot pink and ‘Little Boy Blue’. I love this!
Oh so pretty and oh so trendy. This blue and white arrow print throw is a great way to add ‘Little Boy Blue’ to your home.
Periwinkle blue is such a pretty color for floral print dresses.
Dreamy. White. Awesomeness! The dark indigo and ‘Little Boy Blue’ accents pair beautifully with the wood tones of this built-in bench. This look is made perfect by the white walls and trim of the room.
For the pastel lovers, a blush pink and periwinkle blue combo is a good way to go. Play up the look by combining bold floral and geometric prints.
