Favorite Things!

On Fridays we'll be featuring a few of our favorite things!

What does every room need a touch of?
What looks fabulous with any and every color of the rainbow?
What is so classic and timeless that you'll find it in interiors
from the Ming Dynasty to present?
Why it's one of our very favorite things... Blue and White Porcelain!

Carolyne Roehm notes in her book A Passion for Blue and White (one of our favorites!) that "Living with blue and white does not mean every surface has to be painted or draped in the combination. How you use these shades depends on the room: Find the blue that works with the space and establish a balance so the color isn't overpowering."
One thing's for sure- it will definitely make a statement!

The more Blue and White the better... blue and white porcelain urns at home in a blue/white lattice wallpapered room... we love this room designed by Meg Braff!

In the same room: a Blue and White porcelain lamp and
a Blue and White vase full of Ranunculas!
(One of our favorite flowers!)
Love the cup of bamboo pens too!

Blue and White Porcelain adorns the walls of this room designed by David Easton.
(Oh how we LOVE Blue and White on the walls!!)

Blue and White with Pink Walls?!
(Now that really makes our hearts sing!!)

Entertaining is oh-so-stylish when serving with Blue and White china
as Oscar de La Renta does.

Bunny Williams accessorized with Blue and White
in her vacation home.

Blue and White was the inspiration for Bethany's wedding weekend,
as seen in these last 2 photos, taken at the Rehearsal Dinner.

Life's too short not to surround yourself with your favorite things!
So let's hear it... what are your favorite things??
