Never too much blue and white!


I do adore blue and white, only recently though! Can you believe that I never used to like it? What was I thinking? Luckily I have come to my senses. Kellie x

  12. Oh..Kellie you are not alone. I have always shied away from it because my parents used it a lot in their home. But you are so true, it is always a refreshing, crisp, & just plain lovely.

    Happy Tuesday to you ~

  17. I don't use it in my house either and I love it. I think I figured it out. My house is all black, white and cream and I have a issue with mixing the blue into it. I have this dream of having a blue and white house one day so I have been stashin away blue and white items for that next house. I need to live in the now and not act like my granny by saving stuff. Stay tuned with my blog, I have a blue and white surprise. Heidi

  21. Oh I was of the same opinion as you. I have never really liked blue as a colour to decorate with. But now, there are so many beautiful blues and, coupled with white, it just looks so fresh. I love the pictures that you have posted especially the first one. XXXX

  29. You had me at blue and white! I spent so many years being a closet blue and white collector. I tended to always do our home in the current trend. Well, I'm over that! I recently made a decision to bring things I LOVE out into the light and live with them...I have NEVER been happier! hope your week is going well...dj

  34. Since I was just tiny, it has always been navy blue and white that set the tone for the days of special honor and delight.

    I must have been a sailor in a past life.
