Get the Look: Blue + White Pattern

Thursday, March 19th, 2015

This spring Pantone’s Classic Blue is among the lineup of featured colors and in the latest House Beautiful Egyptian Blue was in the spotlight. The names for shades of blue are endless and the blue and white pairing is very on trend in both fashion and interiors, while block print, indigo dye, and shibori patterns continue to be popular in textiles.

The blue and white combo is a classic! Instead of simple solids, consider these fresh patterned favorites for decorating around your home this season:


blue and white for the home


splatter lamps / origami pillow / dreambirds vase / indigo octagon pillow / chinoiserie knob / bistro stool / geo tray and bowl / school of fish linens / scribble curtain / trellis plates / ayla pillow / medallion rug

You’ll hear no complaints from me, the blue and white pairing will always be a favorite!

First Day of Summer Blues

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

Ah summer, I confess I’m getting lost in it.  I love the casual ‘kick your shoes off’ attitude of this season.  Long hours spent by the pool or simply watching the kids hop through a sprinkler.  Late night lingering over BBQ with heirloom tomatoes and berry cobbler.  The welcome evening breezes that arrive just in time to to blow away the heat of the day.  Toes in the sand and sunsets at the sea, that is quintessential summer to me.

Don’t we all love summer style at home too?  It is equally casual, filled with cotton slipcovers and toss pillows in stripes and bold textiles.  What is summer without the natural textures of rattan and driftwood, and the treasures that come from the sea.  All of these ingredients combine to fill the home with breezy effortless style. 

Naturally, I couldn’t help but become distracted by the colors of sea and sand, and particularly the classic combination of blue and white.  Today marks the beginning of a week long summer vacation for me, and what a perfect day to be feeling the blues.
