Decorating With Blue and White!!!

I started collecting blue and white pieces over 30 years ago. Now it is all the rage! It is classic and will never go out of style! I kept seeing BEAUTIFUL homes featuring blue and white. It struck a chord with me. We were building a house, so I decided I wanted to collect these pieces for our new home.  Now we have another new home and this is how I have used my collection! When you walk in the front door, this is what you see. I love how the steps flair out and I can feature some of my jars on the stairs.
 By the front door, I have an arrangement in a blue and white vase and a blue and white bird house under the plant stand.
 Walking through the foyer we come to this credenza. I made another arrangement for this vase and have 2 more blue and white jars here.
 Next to the credenza is this vignette.
 The elephants came from Vietnam, MANY years ago when my FIL was a pilot. They are 2 of my VERY favorite pieces that I have.
 This very large jar was a gift from my son and is my FAVORITE piece that I have!
 My curio cabinet is filled with blue and white pieces and my Hummels too!

 The LARGE fishbowl acts as a vessel for the tree.
 The coffee table changes frequently, but right now it has a blue and white jar, some fresh flowers, a blue bird and a nest and a pineapple lantern.
 This is one of my favorite pillows. Since our pond is right outside this room, the koi pillow is perfect here in the summer!
 These pillows are farely new and perfect with my collection!

 This year I added blue and white to the kitchen

 And, finally, the barscape in blue and white!

  4. I agree with Shirley. That jar is amazing!

    I love blue and white, but sadly have none. If we ever move I think I will decorate primarily with blues and lots of white. It truly is my favorite color combo.

  12. I have always loved blue - before it was "in style", after it went out of style, and now that it is back. Classic colors and beautiful pottery.
