Beautiful Blue and White

There are few accessories as classic as blue and white porcelain/china! Even if your color scheme doesn't include blue, these lovely pieces can be a crisp accent to any room. Here are some of my favorite pictures showing well-displayed collections of blue and white. Above is a great (mostly) symmetrical arrangement that could be a foyer, dining room or living room. The added greens are a nice contrast to the blue and white, while the stunning gold mirror adds a touch of light and reflection.

What a great centerpiece on this dining room table that is otherwise all white! The varying sizes and shapes of blue and white jars, each containing a different single variety of white blooms, makes this tablesetting a simple but outstanding one.

Another lovely arrangement with different sizes and shapes of jars filled with their own variety of blossoms.

This owner of this blue and white dining room is fortunate enough to have a fireplace there, giving her a space to display an arrangement of blue and white vases and ginger jars.

I love the moss on the top of this table as a contrast in texture to the sleek blue and white porcelain. Note a couple of pieces under the table as well as on top.

Here the over-sized ginger jars fill in the empty space below a foyer console.

REALLY over-sized bowls hold large palms and ferns in this foyer/stairway! Dramatic and effective, this tiny corner and adjoining landing become show-stoppers.

Massing a collection of different sizes and shapes of blue and white is a great way to top a chest or dresser .

We have several great sources for blue and white porcelain, with some pieces always in the shop. Consider using blue and white to accent your next decorating project, or to give new life to an existing room....a classic way to add an updated look.
