Blue and white is a classic color combination in both fashion and design. Combine blue and white with stripes and you have a clean, crisp pattern that is timeless and endless with possibilities. Even tonal blue and blue stripes have a classic feel to them. So when looking for a classic pattern, say make mine blue with stripes!

Classic navy blue is the perfect counterpoint to crisp white. Mix the two together in stripes and you have a fresh, nautical rug in this waterside home.

Pale blue and white stripes is still a graphic look, but the softer color makes it less bold. Love the blue and white striped wall in this cottage living room.

Blue on blue stripes in a royal blue create a dynamic background for this contemporary art filled space. The intensity of the blue is similar to the blue favored by the artist Yves Klein. Can't stop looking at that amazing choice of light fixtures for this space, a stunning white floor lamp.

Horizontal blue stripes are an interesting twist on the typical striped wall. Blue stripes are perfect for a boy's bedroom, especially one with bolder color furnishings.

Blue and white striped fabric becomes whimsical canopies in this fresh take on a children's room. The stripes on the ceiling height canopies draw the eye up.

Graduated blue stripes on linen pillows are great accents in this white coastal living room. The blue stripes on the area rug form a loose plaid with cream stripes on a gray background.

Tealy blue stripes on a ceiling draw the eye to the interesting architectural angles of the room. Wide stripes have a bigger impact than a narrower stripe.

Navy walls with a double pinstripe have a tailored, almost menswear feeling to them. Paired with white cabinets and light counters, they lend a sophisticated edge to this cottage style kitchen. The pitcher lamp and gingham pendant light are beautifully unexpected in a kitchen.
