Hello to all my fellow blue and white lovers, these “meetings” are for us, the incurable blue and white-aholics out in the world and yes, there appear to be many of us out there. Every month I feature a different way to use and incorporate blue and white. Sometimes it’s just a touch and other times, it’s all out blue and white overload. Suffice to say there are few colors or styles that do not work with blue and white.

Today I am focusing on blue and white themed dining rooms. One day I suspect I will do a blue and white dining room. I can see blue and white hand painted murals. now:) I had fun putting this post together because it got me thinking in many new directions, these posts are actually incredibly cathartic and often get even me thinking outside of my own box. As always, I love to  hear what you have to say on the matter so please do chime in! So, let’s take a look at using blue and white in the dining room……….




Cathy Kincaid, one of my faves shows the impact of using blue and whtie porcelain to your hearts content in a dining room! What a beautiful statement it makes.

Clearly I love blue and white in the dining room (this is before the chinoiserie murals were installed)

How gorgeous is that pale blue chinoiserie and love how porcleain really stands out against it, M and M Interiors

It is weird. I LOVE blue and white. I have it all over my home. For some reason I just do not like it in the dining room. Very strange. I have it in the kitchen. Just not in the dining room.

Love the mix! Some dining areas very traditional and others give a fresh look. Thanks for the inspiration!

I have a blue and white dining room and am filling it with all of your porcelain!!

Beautiful pictures! I love all the varied shades of blue and the creative interpretations of blue and white.

My thinking about blue and white has changed drastically since reading your blog for so long. My bedroom is blue/white/chartreuse green accents and I love it. I’ll have to find another room to put in some blue and white!!!

Such beautiful inspirational dining rooms! I can just imagine the wonderful food, fellowship and memories made in each and every gorgeous setting!

Beautiful blue and white post. There is not much prettier than a table set for dinner in a blue and white dining room. Thanks you!

I really enjoy these blue and white posts! The dining rooms are beautiful!
Thank you,

Thank you for sharing all the beautiful blue and white. I have totally gone that direction throughout my home with pops of orange and it makes me happy everyday

Blue and white always works for me. You took us from dramatic to charming. Something for everyone’s taste.

Love every shade of blue. Have taupe wallpaper and blue and white porcelain in my dining room. Love the look!

Thank you for researching blue and white dining rooms! Several have given me a new direction, thought process…

I enjoy a bit of blue and white in several rooms, including the dining area. Love the foo dogs!

Incredible dining rooms, one and all…never get tired of blue and white when there are so many shades to choose from.

You can’t get any better than blue and white….. especially in dining rooms! So many choices to add blue and white China on the table!

Nothing makes me happier than looking at pictures of blue and white! I actually had a person come to my house, look around, and utter “I really don’t like blue”. Whaaat?!?

I have always loved the crisp classic look of blue and white! Lots of inspiration, Tina!

Just love the photos. I grew up with a blue and white dining room as my mother had a beautiful collection of porcelain. I now have her collection and I’m adding to it with your lovely pieces….

Blue and white—day or night…elegant and welcoming. Accent pieces to fabric and wall color…nothing says Chic and Enjoy like blue and white.

These rooms are exquisite! Hard to select a favorite. Thanks for gathering all of them for us to drool over!

Blue and white in dining rooms is the height of hospitality. The dining rooms you featured validate my opinion. So much inspiration ??

Love anything by Suzanne Kasler! Blue and white is classic and goes with any style decor

My master bedroom is blue and white with built-in bookcases on two walls. Most of the pottery was/is purchased thru your site and now has moved into living, dining, family room, and kitchen. I even have a bakers’ rack on the covered patio with your pottery. Love it!

My blue and white craze started in the dining room…..and I love it! I have several pairs of Foo Dogs and these would be a lovely addition!! Love all your posts…

Blue and white are not just beautiful, they’re happy. I picture the people that live in these rooms and they’re smiling! Thanks for an uplifting post!

Your posts always appeal to me as I am a lifelong collector of Blue and White and Chinoiserie. Would love to add the Foo Dogs to my collection, they are wonderful. On a more serious note, I pray that your niece is continuing to heal well.
As always, thanks for the inspiration.

I decorated with blues in the past and then went to more neutral tones.
Think I’m going to start adding back more blue really missing it.
Would love to start with the foo dogs!!!

From the elegant to casual, just proves once again you can’t go wrong with blue and white.

I have always been drawn to the calming combination of blue and white. I think it’s because it reminds me of the beach 🙂
My home is an eclectic mix with splashes of blue and white ginger jars and it really works. I just love it!

I love these posts.
I find out what I like and what I don’t like in interior design.

So beautiful, Tina! Love that you featured dining rooms and hope to see another room (maybe just all bathrooms, for example) featured in our next meeting! Thanks for sharing!

Good morning Tina. This is another beautiful reminder of all the creative ways to use blue and white. So much inspiration!

Oh those are my favorite foo’s, please Luck be mine! Every time you post pictures I tweak and move things around in my home… my husband thinks I’m nuts! We all do it! Thank you!!

Awesome photos! What a difference a shade of blue makes–one photo showing a muted blue was show-stopping for me!

Blue and white dining room heaven, amazing how many different looks you can achieve using blue and white in different ways ! Love the powderpuff blue more contemporary looks mixed with the dark wood and of course the ceramics! It’s the perfect finishing touch !

I love all the blue and white rooms. I recently purchased my first ginger jar at a thrift store!

Thank you for this wonderful article. Gave me alot of ideas.
I love blue and white in every room. Blue and white with yellow, green, or aqua can make any room look different, but still has the basic blue and white theme. All my friends know my blue and white porcelain fetish so they are always finding some for gifts. YEA!

Inspiring! My blue and white collection has been passed down lovingly through generations of smart women. I am continuing to add to it. It is a joy to see that it still loved and stylish today.

All the interiors are beautiful. I wish you could sell similar porcelain centerpieces to the ones that are on the table in the first dining room by Cathy Kincaid. Fabulous!

Nothing is more classic and stylish forever more than decor based upon blue and white. These divine porcelains transport any space, whether dining, living or even the screened porch. Blue and white is happy, no matter how gloomy a day it is.

I can only think of one phrase for Blue & White that just evokes an emotional response – je ne sais quoi!

I will never get tired of blue and white, it is classic! Thank you for sharing all of the beautiful ideas! I look forward to your blog every morning with a cup of coffee, every day should start this way!

All the rooms are just to die for
Would love any one. Well except for two
Just wishing

What beautiful inspiration… the rooms with the chinoiserie wallpaper get me every time!

Thank you for your constant enthusiasm and beautiful research on blue and white rooms and accessories. Always so inspiring!

I so enjoy your blog. Always the epitome of style and grace. Seeing it in the morning gives me a beautiful and serene feeling to start the day!

Loved all the blue and white dining rooms!! Can never have enough blue and white. ❤️

I love everything blue & white ! It always makes me happy!I was blue & white girl in the 80’s & 90’s and now I am going back to it.I’ve been decorating 44 years and it is timeless ! Linda

I picked up some good ideas from your photos Tina. Also, would love those Foo Dogs in my entryway. They have a strong presence.

The varying tones of blue can create very a different feel in each room – formal, casual, eclectic, light and breezy. I’m not sure any other color has that versatility!

My entire house is blue and white and it’s always so exciting to see how others use this color combination. I’m constantly inspired!

Those are all beautiful dining rooms. I have been able to use blue and white in my new dining room, and love it.

Thanks to you and your beautiful Porcelain, I now a blue and white dining room!!

Absolutely love all the posts!! I have loved blue and white for as long as I can remember but you have re awakened my love!! Would love the foo dogs!!!

Better than therapy… I always feel soooo happy in a beautiful blue and white room❤️ Love the blue and white club

Always a pleasure to read your posts. Your taste is impeccable and so inspiring. I have loved all of my porcelain pieces that I have purchased from Enchanted Home. It is because of your inspiration that I redid my family room in blue and white and ordered many porcelain pieces from your collection. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Foo Dogs… I have always had my eye on them 🙂

Beautiful pictures. I’m inspired to paint my dining room a new color to show off all my silver and blue and white.

So many beautiful dining rooms! I have blue and white porcelain in my dining room and love it,

So inspired by all the beautiful rooms showcased in this email. Can’t wait to make a few adjustments!

For many years, I thought I was alone in my obsession for blue interiors. Imagine my joy to learn that I am not alone and that there is a resource for amazing accessories and room design. Thank you for feeding the beast!

Those foo dogs are amazing! I love Blue and White. I have a number of ginger jars and our everyday dishes are blue and white. So classic, especially for summer!

As much as I like using blue and white in my home, I have mixed it with tans and browns. This can work with holiday
themes for the Fall with oranges and browns and during the Christmas holidays with reds and greens.
There are many shades of all these colors can be blended. I think you need to be careful of how
much blue you use and how your space is divided. Always like seeing what people mix in their space.

Thanks for all the inspiration! It lifts me out of rural America and lets me see the world. I always look forward to your posts and sit back and enjoy. You have an exciting writing style that encourages me to want to try things.

Love seeing all the different versions of blue and white, light to dark. Would love the foo dogs for my dining table to join the sitting Chinese figures.

Beautiful dining rooms. I have been collecting blue and white ginger jars since 1970’s. They are in my kitchen, morningroom, laundry and kitchen sitting area. Jut have always loved them and still even now.

I love my blue and white dining room, but this post has given me ideas for a few tweaks.

There’s something about a lacquered room. You did one in dark blue in NYC and that room popped! Today was a room in pale blue. So gorgeous. Thanks for the inspiration, Tina!

Love the variety of rooms that you chose but that they are all warm and inviting. I would love to dine in any of them!

Outstanding dining rooms! I feel that blue and white can be used in any room, sometimes just a touch and sometimes all out!

You are inspiring me to make some changes around my home! Love the first Kincaid photo and of course the second.

Tina, of all the posts you do (and they are all wonderful), The Blue and White Club is truly my favorite. It’s full of inspiration. Thank you for doing this for us!

Always been a blue and white person – great eye candy today! But what steals my heart is the way you end every post with a photo of your beloved Teddy ❤️

The stunning display of blue and white in the first two dining room photos impress me quite a bit! I like an arrangement of plates on walls or a row of smaller plates along the top of a door, whether dining room or kitchen or even the drawing room leading into the dining room. Four large plates frame a painting on the wall over our bed, and on the dresser, a large planter filled with soft blues of hydrangeas. Of course, I have mantel arrangements, too, and one of my Blue Willow tea sets on a table, ready for afternoon tea. Most of these pieces I have collected from my favorite source ~ you!

These are all just gorgeous! But the room by Bria Hammel is my favorite. It is so warm and inviting. I love the vintage touches, and the light fixture – stunning. I could just see sitting in this room for hours with friends, family and tons of laughter.

Oh I love love love the dining room photos, and the foo dogs! I love blue and white, esp the chinoiserie type porcelain. I have pieces of it in every room!

It is only recently that I found your web site and I am a huge fan. Love the Foo Dogs and I have the perfect spot for them — an acrylic sofa table that already has two blue and white temple jars. I really appreciate the portfolio of dining rooms, each with its unique take on blue and white decor. I click on your email everyday for inspiration and just pure pleasure of viewing the beautiful rooms that incorporate my favorite colors — blue and white — and admire the creativity of the designers.

Great ideas, I have a cream dining room with several blue china patterns. I want to paint or wallpaper. This post had lots of great examples. Thanks Tina!

My name is Robin, and I have a blue and white obsession! Thank you for holding these meeting for us! They are both therapeutic and inspiring! 🙂

There are so many blues, it’s hard to not find a shade or pattern you’ll fall in love with!
Barclay Butera’s beach house is a wonderful example of B&W used in a shore house that doesn’t scream ‘we’re at the beach’! Think it’s featured in his ‘Living in Style’ book. Love his use of discrete punches of red and Chinese porcelain, yet the rooms don’t feel precious or stuffy.

I’ve had blue and white in my dining room for 40 years. Have always embraced changing it up to reflect my current taste. Now I have primitive 7ft.long pine table and honey pine 7ft. Tall cupboard along with monogrammed ivory linen parsons chairs at each end black painted cane bottom chairs,large black plate rack and everything is embellished with blue and white I have been collecting forever. I even have a large blue and white ink drawing of the blue willow pattern. Always get great comments on it.

What a lovely journey through your post of Blue and White on this rainy Thursday afternoon. A Blue and White Club is fabulous? and what a gathering of like-minded souls!

Blue and white Club is my favorite meeting day!!!! Thank you for all of the great ideas. Those lacquered walls were amazing!!!

I love your blue and white porcelain in my dining room because it adds another layer of elegance and is timeless and classic.

I love seeing all the different ways to decorate- thanks for sharing all these wonderfully diverse photos!!!

My favorite is the light blue lacquer walls. So peaceful. I think your dining room is beautiful as is with touches of blue and white.

I love everything blue and white! Started collecting blue and white Blue Willow tea sets as a young girl and have moved on to bigger and better blue and white pieces ever since! There is something blue and white in every room in my house!!!

So enjoyed this post and seeing the totally different ways to use my favorite blue and white porcelains and fabrics, paint, etc. Makes me so happy inside ! ?

I love foo dogs! I graduated from high school in Okinawa, where we called them “shi-shi dogs”. Thanks for all your do – I love your posts!

I have always love blue and white and I am now adding more and more porcelain. This post certainly was a feast for the eyes!

What a treat on this gloomy day in zkentucky to view all of the gorgeous blue and white dining rooms. A girl can dream, can’t she?

I have decorated with blue and white since the avocado green and harvest gold days…..what a challenge it was then to find anything I liked! Thank you!

Just amazing how the different shades of the same color can project totally different moods.

Thank you Tina! I also love these posts and find them inspiring as well as full of ideas of how to decorate around my blue and whites! Have a great weekend.

Love, love, love the blue and white look. Don’t know why I haven’t been decorating with that look before! I recently purchased an antique secretary desk and have started filling it with blue and white porcelains! So lovely!!

Some beautiful dining rooms! My favorites are #1 and #2…both beautiful and more my taste!! Thanks for the ideas shared…

Of course the blue and white dining room segues to, what else? But blue and white tablescapes!
Love the Foo Dogs! Would be beautiful in my powder room sitting on floating brass and glass window boxes against a white on white striated wall paper. Towels in varying shades of blue with a white monogram…

I always have “ blue and white” fever….. glad there is not a vaccination for this….. a treat for the eyes!!!!!!

Got to love a foo dog, especially a pair! ❤️They are gorgeous & would be a beautiful addition on my deck this summer! Just found your blog & I’m hooked, keep up the great work & congrats on the Hampton pop up, will definitely stop w/ my designing friends!

Just love this post with so many fabulous ideas for my new breakfast room! Thanks for all your time and everything you do Tina! Love everything you sell!

How inspiring to see so many variations of blue and white dining rooms! I never tire of this classic combination.

Beautiful post. Of all the rooms posted above yours is by far the most beautiful in my eyes. Even before the chinoiserie mural.

Love blue & white French Country chic dining rooms…Your Palmeto Bluff dining room has some of those elements……simple elegance.

There’s just something about blue and white! As a lover of the ocean and all things related, I think it is somehow related to that (at least for me!). Loving the striped chairs too!

Thank you, I’m in the process of doing my dining room in blue and white and this was exactly what I needed.! My recent purchase of blue covered chippendale chairs along with several of your porcelain pieces are my starting point. I am now filled with ideas and know the direction in which I’ll go! Wish me Luck!

Thank you for all the dining room “blues”! I love seeing blue and white porcelain plates on a wall.

Have been converting my living room/dining room to a stand alone dining room and the palette is blue & white. I’ve been struggling with the 3rd & final fabric selection . This post helped me to finally make a decision. Thanks for the inspiration!

Thank you for sharing the blue and white inspirational dining rooms. I have a varied collection of blue and white in almost every room in our home. It’s always timeless and classic. Keep Inspiring!

I am just redoing my dining room in blue , cream and a touch of pink. Thank you for the inspiration.

I love blue and white – it’s displayed throughout our home. It feels fresh, clean and timeless. Love your blog!

Always love your posts. So fun to see different ideas of using blue and white!

I swoon over blue and white and when you add in chinoiserie, I am in heaven. Beautiful, peaceful rooms!

My first blue and white room I did over 60 years ago. My parents let me paint my bedroom. I had the most beautiful pure blue walls with white trim. Being only 14 years old I really didn’t know how to pain, so everything other than wall were white…door knobs, hinges, light switches. I also installed shutters that I painted white, and white curtains with lace trim. My parents kept it until they moved to a smaller home. That was when my daughter was 6 years old.

This is a space to dream and I cannot imagine a good dream that does not contain at least some lovely chinoiserie. My treasured chow mix created a tortured dream when he bounded over the sofa to great me but took with him my blue and white garden stool which cracked into 6 pieces!

So much eye candy! Love the inspiring mix of blue fabrics. I have different shades of blue throughout my house. Thanks for another beautiful post!

Blue and White is just timeless! Any occasion, any room, dressed up or pared down.

Swim and swoon … “swimming” in these blue and white posts keep me “swooning!”

Love the classic blue white combination but most of all, love your enchanted home! Your taste is exquisite.

Hi! My name is Ray and I’m an addict! I fell off the wagon again today at an estate sale! I’m thankful that I have an understanding wife!
I thoroughly enjoy your blog! I’d love those foo dogs and they would look great with my other 400 plus pieces! I’m serious when I say I’m addicted! Keep up the great work! Love it!

I’ve had blue and white tiny rooms and three different homes, can never get enough of it!

I’ve had blue and white dining rooms in three different homes, can never get enough of it!

I love Blue and White Club! I’ve been decorating with blue and white for 40 years. It’s great to see how classic blue and white remains!

Love all the Blue and White. My favorites!!! Love the Foo Dogs,too. You are an inspiration to all .

My love affair with blue and white goes back as far as my childhood in Williamsburg Va. It has been my one constant companion that never leaves, never grows old and never disappoints, Thank you for the dining room inspiration as my dining room needs a little love!

Loved this post so much. Most of my porcelain collection is currently packed away in preparation for moving. Can’t wait to decorate my next space with them.

Love all the beautiful photos but something is off with the dining room by The Fox Group. It feels crowded and the ceiling is way too low.

Didn’t realize there was so many of us blue and white lovers out there. This is my new favorite read!

Your site is always such a pleasure to view. We are lucky to be able to see what you design and offer.

Hi Tina,
I love looking at and reading your posts, as I am one of the blue and white aholics! Unfortunately I only see them on Pinterest and not as an email even tho I have subscribed and your site says I’m on the list, but I am not. ? So by the time I see the posts ( like today) it is too late to enter your give away’s. Would you please look into this for me? Thank you much, Jeannette

I’m not ashamed to admit that blue and white decors bring out the voyeur in me, I can’t get enough of them. I love to absorb the dramatic mix and match of blue and white themed rooms, From the faintest hint of the softest blue to the deepest dark depths on midnights hews, I love it all mixed with white backdrops or vice versa. In all its glory from dramatic bowls, urns and jars to furniture adorned with fabrics striped, floral, paisley, plaid texture to smooth no matter how it comes blue and white will last many lifetimes. It’s calming, soothing, casual or traditional, playing up to your tune. Today’s dining rooms fill with my senses with joy, jealousy and wonder whilst being calm all at the same time. So many wonderful ideas. Thank you from the bottom of my blue ginger jar heart – you had me a blue and white xx

I am a new convert to blue and white and it started with my dining room. So excited to be going in this new direction.

Your post are so tranquil, they give me the break I need from the stressors in my life. Blue and white is my favorite combination of color.
Blue like the beautiful sky and the white for the purity of a peaceful life. In other words, a piece of heaven Is always close at hand.

my favorite color is blue and white it rules my life in home decoration and in clothing

With navy blue walls, the blue and white table setting in my dining room was so lovely this weekend with a centerpiece of hot pink peonies, blue delphinium, deep pink roses, and deep pink English daisies to complement the fuschia and blue plaid napkins. I did not want to clear the table. The only thing that would have made it better would be a pair of blue and white foo dogs.

Beautiful rooms. I have already told my husband that I would like the large blue and white tulipierre for my birthday in November! Love your site.

Love all of your blue and white posts! Thanks for all of the inspiration! I will have to share some pics of my own blue and white decor.

After all four of my kiddies have moved out, I finally get to live the Blue and White life that I dreamed of!

The M and M interiors is one of my all time favorites! I referenced that picture many times, just beautiful!!

I love the complete collection!! They all magnificent! I have a couple of the white and blue vases but never had the opportunity to own a pair of Foo Dogs, if I won these set, I will place them in the hutch of my dining room. I want them to be the talk during dinnertime and I am sure my friends will want to know how I obtained them, they look amazing!

Love all the blue and white rooms dishes fabrics, so calming and restorative. Never gets old . We had a foo dog in the yard, cement. My father said it was our best behaved dog ever.
