Navy and white has been a tried-and-true combination for designers for years because blue is impossible to mess up when combined with white. Whether it’s adding a bold navy and white wallpaper to your powder room or layering in blue and white accessories to your space, this color combination goes with everything. Personally, I use blue and white throughout my entire home—like in my favorite set of TK Collections custom-designed woven bistro chairs that are in my kitchen. —Alexandra Wood, owner of Alexandra Wood Design

White Dove, Benjamin Moore (OC-17)
This versatile shade is my key color for walls, trim, cabinetry and other millwork. White Dove maintains enough warmth so that it’s not too cool, yet does not go on too creamy or yellow.
Decorator’s White, Benjamin Moore (0C-149)
You can’t go wrong with this shade—it consistently looks good. I love this white for ceilings and woodwork, or in any room where you want a bright, clean white.
Intense White, Benjamin Moore (OC-51)
This hue is a very light off-white color with tints of warm gray and a hint of green in the undertone. The mix of these colors in the undertones counterbalances the warmth, making this a gorgeous color for walls.
Hague Blue No. 30, Farrow & Ball
This deep dark blue works well on walls, exterior accents and cabinetry. The green undertones of this timeless and dramatic blue make it a standout paint color.
Indigo Batik, Sherwin Williams (SW 7602)
A nice choice for a navy blue that is dark but doesn’t look black, and doesn’t appear too royal blue in lighter situations. It’s a dramatic wall color.
Hale Navy, Benjamin Moore (HC 154)
An allstar paint color that is versatile, beautiful and dependable. It works in almost any lighting situation, has a perfect mix of cool and warm tones, and looks great on walls and furniture.
