there isn’t anything i love more than blue and white, especially blue and white ceramics. it’s one of my design signatures and for good reason- it doesn’t matter if your style is traditional or if it’s more modern, whether you like an eclectic look or a simple one, whether you like more or less, a piece of blue and white looks great anywhere, it instantly livens up any room- i always say blue and white invites!

i think veranda magazine agrees with me- all three of these homes were in veranda, all of them with lot’s of blue and white ceramics (see more blue and white in veranda here). what’s interesting is that all the styles of homes are different- there is a traditional home in georgia, a santa barbara beach retreat and a paris peid-à- terre. three different style of homes in three different demographics, all in veranda- all of them love blue and white!
