Are you a member of the blue and white club? And a blue and white contest!

Hello and happy late afternoon….we are having the most spectacular fall weather, loving it! It’s just enough for a light sweater or jacket, perfecto:) If you are like me and love blue and white, then you my friends, have indeed come to the right place!

?I announced the other day the start of my “Blue and white love” contest. This is one contest I am crazy excited about having and I promise to find a glitch free poll to upload when the time comes to make voting easy!! The rules are simple and I hope to any of my fellow blue and white lovers that you will consider sending in your pictures. Today is a perfect excuse to share some more blue and white love….does it ever get old? I say no! I have already gotten in some pretty amazing pictures…….

It is classic, timeless, always elegant and literally works inside, outside in any style home. I have seen it look amazing in more transitional homes as well as it does in very traditional ones. It is just a sure thing. So take a look at some blue and white love that I have been enjoying in many shapes, forms and ways………

Decorating with plates and another wonderful giveaway!!

Hi there. First things first….happy to announce the lucky winner of the Safavieh shoe ottoman! Here’s the lucky person….

Result: 19

Susan Snavely Kohr Came over to this site from Tina at The Enchanted Home… Beautiful giveaway!
Congrats Susan!? Contact me here with your shipping details.

The giveaways are not over, another amazing one from Nancy’s daily dish? (aka queen of transferware) at the end of this post so stay tuned!? I loved putting this post together…….I have always loved the look of a plate or porcelain platter collection on a wall. It is at once, charming, beautiful and warm. It exudes elegance while really lending a certain warmth and charm to a space. Do you agree?? Ironically, this look is applicable towards virtually any style room, not just traditional as you will see. Though I have always admired the look, I have admittedly not actually used a plate collection on my own walls, it does not mean I won’t. In fact I am really hoping to sooner than later.

For such a large home, we have few blank walls….but I am determined to find a little nook to try my hand at this and in the meantime, have so enjoyed my “research”? which serves as further confirmation why I love the look so much. And if that’s not enough, super talented Nancy of Nancy’s daily dish fame…has so generously offered a giveaway AND a discount code to anything on her site!! Does it get better? All details to follow on the bottom…..

Peggy Stone nailed this fabulous setting with all that gorgeous blue and white!! Love it……

Just adore the colors in this room, its inviting and rich and elegant……and got a great idea of adding plates to? a small interior wall (yes even atop wood)!

?Wow….the impact of the gorgeous blue and white and dried hydrangea is spellbinding!

?This gorgeous collection of plates looks right at home in this elegant hutch

I like the rustic country feel of the plates and antlers in this charming home……….
Love how Nancy used plates alongside art and brackets….so beautiful! Nancy’s daily dish

Blue and white…..always works!

?Nancy’s stunning wall, love how the blue and white pops!! Such a wow factor here…..

Cathy Kincaid completed this incredible room (one of my all time faves) with a collection of plates and porcelains to adorn the wall….who needs wallpaper when you have this!

?Wow! Talk about adding a serious dose of drama ( wouldn’t want to be there during an earthquake) Alberto Pinto

?Andrea O’Meara knocked it out of the park with this simple but elegant vignette using plates

Love the idea of a monochromatic look as shown here, Shelterness
?Gorgeous brown transferware looks fabulous here, Jennifer Jordan
Beautiful plates adorn this gorgeous pantry’s walls, Traditional Homes

?The warmth of the rich woods is the perfect backdrop to this exquisite collection,? Nancy’s daily dish

?They add a lot of cheeriness to this pretty eating nook, Country Living

?Think this is such a great idea! Using a collection in a space that you see all the time, above a hall console table…..stunning!

?Two really unique ideas here….framed plates and plates on brackets, love it! Anita Meek

?Love the idea of using the same pattern but different sizes and grouping them around a mirror!

Think this setting done entirely in black and white is spectacular, Camille Styles

?I also think the idea of adding assorted plate sizes and shapes all in the same color is particularly great for a more transitional space, House Beautiful

Love the gorgeous collection of blue and white plates in this wonderful nook of shelves, Trad Home

?Looove this room……so stunning! French Country Home
?Even sometimes a strategically placed platter or platter is all that is needed!

?This space is so beautiful….its monochromatic and the plates just warm up the space so well!

Positive proof that this look works for any top of space beautifully including this eclectic one, Daydecor

?Isnt’ this pop of color and texture fabulous! Love it! Camelot Art
?Gorgeous!!!!! Love the colors, wish I could remember where I got this……anyone?

Stunner of a room with this giant hutch filled with creamy colored plates! Southern Accents
