Color Inspiration: Cobalt Blue and White

Cobalt blue and white is a combination that coordinates great with a variety of colors. Our inspiration photo shows it with light pink, adding depth and a strong graphic quality to an otherwise softly tranquil room. In addition to pink, cobalt blue and white also look great with green, yellow and red. A decor classic, examples of this beautiful combination have traveled the world in motifs from east Asia, the middle east and western Europe.

My favorite pairings of our color inspiration are with mint green and aqua. Pairing it with yellow is a European classic. Whichever color you choose, you can't go wrong with cobalt blue and white.
