Blue stripes ...

Blue skies and trendy stripes are summer's welcome gift. Somehow the season beckons shades of sapphire indoors to lighten our mood when paired with white.

Handsome tailoring and simple blue and white cotton duck are classic, beach chic favorites.

Blue striped rugs are equally charming on stone and hardwood floors.

Basic blue in zig zags or straight lines - perfection!

There are always light blue options for the more timid blue fans, or paint walls a solid blue and accent with stripes.

Wall treatments in vertical and horizontal blue stripes are definitely the focus of attention in any room. Even striped accessories can add just what's needed when placed against a dark blue wall. Yum!
