The classic combination of blue & white is always a favorite. Crisp and clean, the combination of blue & white adds a bit of freshness, especially for spring. Today on the blog I’m featuring some of my favorite finds at FrenchGardenHouse for spring decorating and gifting. Blue & White are : A Perennial Spring Favorite!
A small touch of blue and white can already do wonders. While not blue and white, but blue and cream, this set of stunning tapestry woven pillow covers changes our living room in an instant!
Throughout the history of decorative arts in interior design, decorating with blue & white has always been considered a timeless classic. Here in our own FrenchGardenHouse, we decorate with blue and white all year long! With blue and white antique Delft and Makkum pottery that I inherited from my grandmama and Mom.
We have a love for antique French and English blue and white plates and platters too! Not just for serving, they are a workhorse in decor.
I have used them in a little pop-up bar area –
To display a little collection with style –
and just as a display together with other blue antiques like this French enameled coffee pot –
Blue is always crisp, stylish and tranquil. In our master bedroom sitting area, the blue and cream pillows look perfect with our collection of antique blue and white plates.
Fresh. Clean. Classic. Always at the height of style. It’s what makes blue & white a perennial Spring favorite. Decorating with Blue and White is a color crush many of you share with me. Blue & White is a true love that lasts forever. Can you tell we’re in love with blue?
What’s a fresher way to set your table for spring and summer? One of my favorite looks for tables for spring, white Italian plates with my favorite blue and white linen embroidered napkins. How good is that?

French Country kitchens and dining rooms love blue and white too! Decorator Charles Faudree used blue and white to create such incredible designs!
There is no right or wrong way to incorporate blue and white into your decorating at home. Do what you love. Fill your kitchen with blue and white antiques if that’s what you adore. I often press my antique platters into service for “just pretty” or to hold bottles and spices next to the range.
This Spring, collect more blue and white to add little areas in your home that make a blue and white style statement. New or antique, blue and white is a refresh for your home. I don’t know about you, but seeing those crisp cool blue and white colors at home refreshes my mind too.

Yes blue and white looks crisp and clean. My favorite blue and white are the plates hung on the wall. I once did a bedroom in blue and white and used blue and white wallpaper. Its gorgeous still and a favorite.
The bedroom sounds beautiful, Alice! It’s always classic and always in style.
Blue and white…a favorite of mine – especially the navy shade of blue! When I saw those lavender wands in navy…my fingers could not take me to your shop fast enough! And your lace design plates are so perfectly lovely!
