We are absolutely THRILLED to have the fabulous Tina of The Enchanted Home with us today.  As avid fans since her first post, we have loved following the journey of the building and decorating of her amazing new home, and her latest venture, the opening of her online store, chock full of treasures. From linens to art to silver and even kitchenware, Tina’s choices are always, unsurprisingly, classic, beautiful and a little bit unique — just like she is!  Since Tina’s blog is a daily “must” for us, we know her love for blue and white and are so happy that she’s sharing it with us. Thank you, Tina!

Good morning! I am so happy to be here, I adore Kristy and Beth, don’t they have such amazing style, true flair and gorgeous taste? I am a big big fan of theirs and of their  blog which always promises something fabulous and leaves me smiling. Love their eye! Anyone who knows me knows of my love for blue and white, so today it seemed fitting that  I dedicate this post to decorating with blue and white, namely porcelains. The possibilities are limitless with this wonderful element, truly I think blue and white works in virtually any kind of room, be it a bedroom, living room, bathroom or kitchen. 
 
You are not limited to just using it for traditional rooms…it works as well in transitional or even more modern spaces too. I am a big fan and collect it…it certainly always has a welcome place in my home. So to  highlight its versatility I am showing different spaces that have effectively used blue and white as an accent and then how I like to use it in my own home….hope you enjoy! What do you think about decorating with blue and white? Do you have it in your own home?

For Easter breakfast, of course I used yep…more blue and white!
And my kitchen island always has an abundance of blue and white……
Phew…….blue and white overload! But to me, there no such thing as too much. I believe that blue and white is one of those timeless classics, it never goes “out” and is always very much in. It happens to be riding quite the wave of popularity at the moment but if you look back even decades ago you will see in the grand old homes, plenty of blue and white. Due to our expanding global marketplace, it is available in all prices ranges which makes it easy to find its way into anyones home. Best part is there are no rules…you play as you go along, adding a piece here, taking a piece away there….until you get it just right. Hope you enjoyed this post on blue and white and would love to hear what you have to say….thank you Beth and Kristy for having me!! Wishing everyone an enchanting day!
