Baby, haint, cerulean, turquoise, aqua, or, of course, Carolina! Whatever shade you love best, we just adore blue, blue, blue! When it’s paired with white? Perfection every time!

Blue and white bedding is gorgeous wherever you are!

White paneled walls are never a bad idea, especially by the shore.

This gorgeous tile looks almost as much like water as what is flowing out of the tap! How fabulous!

Mixing and matching shades of blue and white is always a good idea.

And it doesn’t always have to look traditional. This modern art is the perfect complement to the more formal feel of this entrance.

But, of all the blue and white, there’s just nothing like that of water and sky… Hoping your weekend is filled with a little (or a lot) of that! 

If you missed yesterday’s post, we had the pleasure of creating a room using products from the  Annie Selke Companies.  Annie is giving one lucky reader a Paintbrush sheet set from Pine Cone Hill on the Fresh American blog—valued at $298! Contest ends on Thursday, June 18 at 11:59 p.m. EST. View the full details.

What some of our favorite bloggers are saying about DEAR CAROLINA:

“Dear Carolina brought back memories, opened and closed old wounds, and reminded me that you can do anything in this life if you choose to do so. The book is heaped full of tenderness, strength, elegance, beauty, humor, and love. Kristy hit a home run on this one!” — Teresa, Splendid Sass

“I couldn’t get enough of this book, and wished it hadn’t ended.  Admittedly, I don’t often finish a book but this was an easy, fun read that I easily sailed through in a few sittings.” — Nancy, Powell Brower Home
