Hello there and happy summer! Believe it or not started this post way back in spring, and there were so many rainy days it never got finished. It made the post a little difficult to complete (was hoping to get more of my own blue and white outdoors). So decided to finish this up and do a part two which will feature my own patio and how I like to incorporate blue and white outside.

Busy week over here, my parents are in and we have an awards dinner tonight and I will be gone all day tomorrow for a blogger/marketing conference, so you will hear from me again later Friday or Sat.

With the spring and summer,  comes a renewed interest to  make everything outdoors beautiful. I am excited about bringing my beautiful blue and white pillows out from hibernation,my gingers jar and planters, seat cushions,etc……bring it on!

Most think of blue and white indoors but some forget how magical it is outside too. Today’s post is dedicated to showing you just how amazing blue and white is outside. Hope you are inspired to perhaps consider adding a little blue and white to your own outdoors….





What is not to love about this incredible space, simply spectacular!


Love the idea of fusing a blue and white accent like these darling covered ottomans to liven things up, so many great outdoor choices


Marcus Design did a brilliant job of showing us how beautiful blue and white is outdoors


Yes to all of this! enesa Wildermunth


Wow, this is one spectacular space, The Glam Pad

I have been inspired to try this myself….Carolyne Roehm (of course)!


Marcus Designs once again, so gorgeous


And one of my favorite things to do is add blue and white jars to an outdoor mantle and it’s even prettier filled with fresh flowers! French Country Cottage


Few things are as pretty as seeing a table set with blue next to a pool…..that is summer at it’s best!


Isn’t this just perfect in every possible way? Parker Kennedy

So do I have you convinced yet that blue and white is as beautiful for the outdoors as it in? Next time (part 2) I will show you how I apply this to my own home and outdoor spaces. Would love to know if you add blue and white to the outdoors and what are your favorite ways to do it? Thank you for stopping in, wishing everyone a fabulous day! Until next time…..

I recently added blue and white on my patio. I saw somethings on your blog that inspired me. Why has it taken me all these years to take it outside? Maybe it’s because my collection grew. Happy blue and white days of summer

This post has inspired me to spend more effort making my outdoor spaces outdoor living rooms. The sweltering heat we are experiencing here in California means living outdoors is a must. So, it might as well be made to look beautiful!

Love using blue and white outdoors. It conveys a comfy feeling and a freshness to outdoor living. Really enjoy all your blue and white photos. Keep them coming. Thanks!

Please consider offering the option to drill holes in the bottom of the large fishbowls so they
can be used outside without having to dump out excessive rainwater. We get a lot of rain here in Mobile, AL, and I have to dump out my tree hydrangeas regularly so they don’t get too water logged. I plant directly into smaller blue and white pots that I use around my fountain on the
ledge, but the bigger pots I use I just pop a large plant in and top with Spanish moss to dress
up the top. When we get a downpour, I have to lift them out and dump out the water, then place
them back in.

You can never go wrong with blue and white, inside or out. I love the blue and white when paired with lemon trees! Every room is beautiful! Hope that you are having a fabulous week Tina!

YOUR loggia is gorgeous. And I am loving the mix of blue and white with black and white stripes. Have fun with your parents.
