Hello there, thanks to everyone for asking about my knee. I did not get the MRI yesterday when I found out it was not an open MRI (am super claustrophobic) but was able to get an appt. today for an open MRI, do hope to have the results within the next 2 days, just want to get to the bottom of it! Onto happier subjects….I felt a post was way overdue on one of my most favorite subjects, blue and white. You know how I love it and from the looks of magazine covers, spreads and other design sources I am seeing blue and white making a huge come back…anyone else notice?

I think two things that make is exceptional are that A. it literally looks amazing with any color and B. its absolutely timeless. You can look at pictures of rooms from 80 years ago with beautiful blue and white vases and see rooms today and there is something totally classic about them.

Most of my own personal pieces are new that look antiqued. There are a few factories that carry exceptional pieces and are replicated down to the most minute detail to look antiqued. I also have some genuine antique pieces which look fantastic mixed in with the new…..another perk, mixing and matching is a breeze, there are no rules. I am hoping to have included many pictures you? might not have seen which is always a treat:)

So the first picture I took yesterday is what inspired me to post a blue and white post and you know how one thing leads to another…….

Let’s be honest here…is there really ever such a thing as too much blue and white? I say no, I never get tired of seeing it and am constantly inspired to try new things….unlike many popular trends today, this will stand the test of time!

As I prepare to redo my shop site, so too will an expansion happen with my already large selection of blue and whites. It is a total labor of love:) Some of my newer favorite pieces from my shop are below. In case you have blue and white fever and could use a little dose of it, click here to see my full selection in my online shop.

What a sight for sore eyes! We are still unpacking after a very long haul to get into our new home- finally! I cannot tell you how inspiring this post was. I plan on using a lot of blue and white in my decor and cannot tell you how many great ideas I have gotten from you Tina. You in my eyes are the master of blue and white and I bow down to you!

Hello Tina, such beautiful inspiration to make the day sweeter….

Love, love blue and white so much, it is how I found you! I am supposed to be busy working, but I think I will just go and make a new vignette 😉

I was very interested to read the interview with Tish yesterday, and all the super-tips. Definitely going to buy her book…

Thinking of you with the mri scan, and hope your knee is a bit better…..good luck Xx

Hi Tina, I’m married to blue and white. I embrace it everyday. Just love it!

michele@hellolovelystudio on

tiiiiiiiiinaaaaaaaa, blue and white! i need more in my life! i want a blue and white kitchen–i do, i do. it’s clean and fresh and so friendly. who can argue with the timelessness? blue and white are a power couple and can never be underestimated. how sweet is it that you have weaved the pair into your home, shop, and writing so that it’s impossible to not think of the enchanted home whenever we hear blue and white?!? it’s genius.

p.s. the photo of the blossoms you took is insane. it’s beautiful, and i wouldn’t have noticed tags.
p.s.s. like me, you are also under the trance of those photos by jeanne yesterday of the peonies and such. omg. she just keeps upping the ante.

THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

I always enjoy Blue-and-White, which is all through my home, and it adds so much charm. When I see it in your home, my heart comes alive and I gasp, “Oh may I come in and visit awhile? Just us girls??? Hmmmm??”

There is nothing in this world quite like Blue-and White.

Cheers!!!

Carolyn Bradford on

Tina, I hate that I am still trying to get used to not seeing your posts like I used to! It’s always nice when I do come across them! I miss talking to you and I certainly miss reading all of your wonderful posts filled with such great design ideas! This post was beautiful and is certainly helping to feed my love of blue and white! Hope you had a wonderful Mother’s day!

Marilyn on

What a lovely post…love the pet dish! The tiled rooms are especially beautiful…makes me feel good!

Blue & white lovers might enjoy one of my favorite books, BLUE & WHITE LIVING by Stephanie
Hoppen…Clarkson Potter/ Publishers, NY, 1998.
Also, the site…blue & white tile of Portugal…real eye candy.

Thank you, Tina, for always giving us beautiful things to look at & great ideas!

We’re so sorry to hear about your knee and hope it’s nothing major. That dog bowl is perfect for Teddy (does he love blue & white as much as you do?) and we always love Michael Smith’s blue tiled powder room. We hope the MRI goes smoothly and that you’re on the mend soon!
