With the upcoming release of Carolyne Roehm's new book A Passion for Blue and White, there is sure to be a lot of talk about this classic color combination. It's one of the easiest color schemes with which to work, and you never have to worry about it not looking chic. Of course, Roehm is not alone in her love of blue and white. Here are a few designers and fashionable persons who make these two colors look so great that you too might develop a passion for blue and white.
I love this vibrant dining room designed by British decorator John McCall. He based the blue and white color scheme on the Delft tile in the fireplace and the owner's collection of blue and white porcelain. (British House & Garden; photographer Bob Smith)
Updated yet classic American style in this bedroom designed by Sara Gilbane. The punchy print is a youthful take on timeless blue and white.

Isn't this over the top? And totally fabulous too? The Capri home of Valentino, photographed in 1971. (1971 must have been a fun year in design!)
