Take your collection to the coast. A seaside home is one of my favorite places to use blue-and-white porcelain, as it ties in beautifully with a nautical color palette. To keep it from looking too formal, I would use the porcelain pieces on a mantle and fill them with wild sea oats, starfish or seashells for a nice contrast. Oscar de la Renta's Dominican Republic home is filled with blue-and-white china. If it's good enough for Oscar, it's good enough for me!
