Decorative Accents

Decorative accents like artwork and other smaller décor items (e.g. vases, lamps, bookends) are an easy way to add Classic Blue into your home in smaller doses. They’re easy to change out as trends, the season, or your design tastes evolves.

Rugs and Linens

Area rugs and linens like bedding, towels, and even curtains offer another less permanent way to enjoy this trend.
