Hi there. Still on the mend, getting there slowly but surely. Thanks for all your well wishes. Boy few things can smack a little humility into you like not being able to walk! I am down to relying on one crutch which is big progress but I am taking it painfully slow to avoid a relapse. Do not think I have ever watched so many movies within a 72 hour period, and I remain firm that documentaries and foreign flicks are still the best films out there! I will share a few faves later on in the week. The down time also gave me a chance to catch up on some reading, some serious pinning action and of course plenty of blogging…… It also gave me some time to work on a few new posts. I had been thinking of this subject for a while as I glanced around my own home. I realized I love seeing blue and white together (no surprise there) but when accented with black it’s really amazing, it somewhat elevates it to another level. So thought this could make? an interesting design post to first see if this is a combination you might? have noticed, used yourself or like? Would love as always to know your thoughts. And now some pictures that best exemplify this beautiful trio in action…. ? My own kitchen features a large black island, black range and plenty of blue and white accents I adore this powder room by Ann Norton, not a thing I would change! Talk about eye catching and seriously dramatic! Arch Digest Windsor Smith sure knocked it out of the park with this amazing kitchen that most of us know and love, those glossy walls get me every time! Ashely Whittaker created this lovely vignette with the beautiful trio of colors John Jacob Interiors created this exquisite and super elegant bathroom, love it! Christina Murphy designed this beautiful powder room with this blue, white and black dramatic paper And how chic is this laundry room that belongs to Beth of Chinoiserie Chic? Amazing! This is a great kids space using the three colors beautifully I love this space from Williams Sonoma, it is dramatic yet peaceful and so elegant Of course blue and white always works in the outdoors! The black cushions ground the space while the blue and white ginger jars lift and lighten, Decorpad The drama factor is undeniable, Pinterest Kerrisdale Design created this inviting and elegant living room, really like the vibe here, it feels current yet elegant This was one of the fabulous Polyvore finalists from my Hamptons Beach House contest on Polyvore…sensational!

Kellie Griffin Interiors Collins Interiors proves here that even in? more modern spaces this combination of colors is rich and dramatic Love the crisp fresh appeal here, with just a subtle touch of black, House and Home Just even touches of black like a bed post or picture frame can add a subtle dose of drama, John Jacob The combination works beautifully even in more transitional spaces, Mocca and Me Jonathan Adler went bold in this dining room, and it worked!

Chic Coles My coffee table in my living room is a? beautiful black Chippendale style and features a gorgeous blue and white scalloped planter Mel of Georgica Pond clearly knows how well this works, one look at how she put it together in her own home proves its a perfect combination Blue and white gingers jars are really striking atop a black piece of furniture such as this French console, my own home Love this beautiful small foyer by Suzanne Dimma, so well done, just love a glossy black front door! This pretty foyer just used a touch of black in the chandelier and rug for a little extra drama, Decorpad The light feeling blue and white trellis rug accented with the more dramatic black pieces compliments each other beautifully, John Jacob I do love seeing blue and white porcelain on top of a black island such as I have done in my own kitchen This is like the poster child for using the three colors together to perfection….so very pretty. John Jacob once again! Well has this post made you a believer? Admittedly when I first started doing my “investigative research” I wasn’t really sure how easy it would be to find enough pictures to support my cause but boy, was I ever surprised! Or maybe you already were well aware of how great these colors are togehter and in fact have used this color combination in your own home? I know I have and will certainly continue to! Would love to know your thoughts. The irony here is I am finding out that few colors don’t look good with blue and white, it is just that black happens to look exceptionally good! Your turn to talk…… Thanks for stopping in. Have a few people opening up the tole today, woo hoo! Hope to have pictures soon and will try to get it up online ASAP. Until next time..enjoy your day!
