Wednesday, September 2, 2009 & white anything!

via porchlight interiors
Anything to do with a blue and white scheme has me captivated. The colour combo is so fresh and seeing that we here in Australia have just started Spring, I thought some blue and white fancy was in order. This first image above shows how well these two work together to create a fresh interior, especially when teamed with wicker and dark faves!

Which brings me to other blue and white items I love to feature in a room...especially the Ginger Jar!! I am more taken with the patterning like the ones above over the Chinese images you can find quite easily. I think this is why I am having such a hard time tracking them down for my collection.

Then I spotted this! This gorgeous fabric by the master of blue and white, Ralph Lauren I recently spotted on Anna Spiro's website in her Portfolio on a chair and some cushions she had done. It is the perfect scale (much larger than this shows) and the perfect patterning to remind me of the Ginger Jars I so love. This is the fabric I want to put on the cushions on our sofa against the ticking I showed yesterday.

In the meantime, while I search for more jars, I have just purchased this beautiful print from uber talented artist and blogger Anne Harwell of Annechovie. I can't wait for its arrival.
So, I went on a hunt for prints of blue and white items and found this little print...not quite me, but it is just so sweet. I am sorry I can't remember who the artist was.

As much as I love Ginger jars, I am really not fussy as to what it is, like these little china balls and pots...

....and I can settle for plates...and Hydrangeas! I just have this long obsession with this combo as much as the white obsession I have. My wish though is to have a collection like...

  1. Hi,

    I share your love to everything what is blue and white. My love to this color reavealed itself when I first saw blue onion pattern. Somehow unconsciously I have always loved it.
    I will be happy to see some more blue and white on your blog. Good luck with your collection :)

  2. Ness, I could not agree with you more! Although I do love my pink blue and white will forever be my favourite colour combo. Blue and White is a part of my soul. My Nanna's home was filled with B&W, my mum's home is filled with B&W and so is my own. Great post!
