Decorating With Blue and White China

Lately I have become obsessed with decorating with blue and white china. What is so surprising about my newfound obsession is that it is a little more traditional than what I usually like. However, I actually love the idea of mixing blue and white china with more bright and bold colors and with modern and newer pieces. Here are some of my favorite looks I’ve found.

Aren’t you dying over these tablescapes?? 
This is my dream dining room by Grant Gibson! The mix of the blue and white jars with the graphic black and white floors and the gorgeous green chairs is seriously perfection. Oh and then the juxtaposition of  that modern light fixture with the more traditional elements…DYING!

I’ve also found styling inspiration from Jamie Meares. This fellow blogger/ interior designer / store owner is the master of mixing old and new!

I noticed my parents had blue and white jars and vases lying around their house {who doesn’t} so I borrowed a few to use in our bookshelves. Here’s how it looks!
Blue and White China:
I honestly did not think I would ever like the same patterns of China as my mom, but I am actually coming around! And it’s not necessarily that I want to eat on the plates really, I just want to hang them on my walls like in these rooms.

Again, the mix of the classic patterns mixed with the bold colors and modern fixtures and furniture keeps it from looking like your grandmother’s house!

  1. I’m back! Finally getting caught up on all of my favorite bloggers after our big move to Germany!

    I LOVE the blue and white! I don’t know where my interest came from, but it has been going crazy for the past couple of years and I’ve been growing my collection whenever I can! I do have the Blue Willow china set and eat off of it every day! It makes me so happy!


  2. i have been all about this for years as well. our formal china is English, so loooots of the blue and white on our dinner table! i went for a classic white for everyday and i tend to mix them so it’s not so hard on the eyes. i also have a budding collection of chinese urns on top of our tv armoire. hook. line. sinker. ox
