Color-Combo: Blue and White


Blue and White is such a classic color combination, and it seems like lately I've been seeing it more and more.

It looks gorgeous outside! I love using blue out in the garden, and it looks great here on the outdoor rug.

And there's classic blue and white pottery. Goes with anything!

It makes a serene and beautiful bedroom.

It can be an easy and inexpensive way to decorate a wall.


Still beautiful and serene in a bedroom...

It's interesting over cabinets in the kitchen.

And it adds some color to a foyer.


I'm using blue and white as accents in our guest bedroom to go with a painting that Chris' grandmother did - as a pillow on the bed, and in some pottery around the room.
How about you? Do you like the blue and white color combination??
And in case you haven't already - don't forget to enter my GIVEAWAY!

We picked up some lovely blue and white vases at Crate and Barrel. It was a beautiful set of 5-all varying heights and patterns and I love them! They look so pretty scattered around the room!

i'm too superloving like Jenny there! funny, every summer I want this style so badly, and then perhaps forgot about it after the summer... weird? maybe it's something my soul needs to get when I finally purchase a cottage... yes, that's ofcourse it! Now I need to convince the BF to buy a summer cottage so that I can start creating this look... somewhere by the lake ofcourse. Now I'm dreaming away again... I let you know how it goes! :)

I was at my grandparent's yesterday, and my grandma has some similar blue-and-white pottery. I told her it's very in now. She got a kick out of me saying that, because she inherited it decades ago.
