Some places have their own, instantly identifiable color combinations, like the deep blue and sun-bleached white that's found on the Greek Isle of Santorini...
The Homeric Poems Hotel, on the coast of the Agean Sea, takes its color cues from the horizon. The simple blue and white palette makes you focus your eye on the view, and on the texture of the whitewashed walls.
A few blue and white details we love:
• Painted two-tone steps
• Blue and white striped rugs
• White interior walls with blue trim
