  4. My living room has gray walls, white trim, dark blue carpet and white upholstered Queen Anne furniture. I like to see how you decorate with blue and white and get some ideas from your website. You are an inspiration. After seeing your site, I just created an arrangement for the center of the dining room table using white and pale blue hydrangeas and iris in a silver water pitcher. From time to time I have used ‘accent colors’ of red, sometimes yellow, sometimes pink with my blue and white colors. My Christmas tree (which stays up year round) is decorated in a patriotic theme of red-white-blue with white lights. Thank you for your website.
