There is just something about blue and white isn’t there! It’s one of my design favorites and when I am working with someone and they say they have it or love it, I know we are going to be good together! And yes I blog about it a lot but it is just the one constants I come back to whether in a fresher more modern design with orange and ghost chairs or a more traditional or even country design. It just. works. everywhere.
The truth is I was looking at blue Wedgewood for my china selections before I was even engaged! (Anna, remember in London 1997?) I have just loved it forever.
Great love this by James Farmer..I mean seriously, the pine, the bamboo, the tobacco tray!

Oh how I love with bamboo accents and natural shades!
And below I really like how she grouped a large ginger jar with a platter and smaller jar and the black tray behind! I tend to group all jars together but this is a good lesson from Mary Carole Garrity!
Indeed, God bless you Mary Carole Garrity and Nell Hills! (and Angie look at those drapes!), you have taught us a lot about using blue and white as a neutral almost..in non matchy and various settings! I remember being a newlywed decorating our apartment and realizing blue and white could work okay with a GREEN sofa. That may sound crazy to some but it was freeing to me! God made the sky blue and white and grass green after all!
I could go on and on and on …. Pink Pagoda has some great blue and white images and pins on their blog like the one above..again a platter or charger with varying size jars, love this grouping strategy! And their phone cases! Oh my!
No coincidence the most beautiful color combo ever to meet kaolin clay is also the color combo that God made the sky, thank you to my wise husband for reminding me to look up from the iphone today and see some beautiful clouds …what a gorgeous color combo He created!
