Have you noticed? Lately, blue and white is king.This color pairing can veer classic, nautical or modern. Blue and white ceramics, for instance, are thrown in with all kinds of styles. We can be purists and go strictly blue and white, but I like it best when the combination commands a room but is interspersed with other natural materials. This list will help you get your blue and white on. — Sarah from The Estate of Things
What a mix! Grant Gibson's dining room with modern chandelier, kelly green chairs and fiddle leaf fig, topped off with a collection of blue and white ginger jars, was pretty fabulous. The blue and white bring that classic, traditional element to the space.
