Beautiful Blue and White Bedroom and Bath

Today we're are continuing our tour of Sandi's beautiful 1833 home.  Sandi shared a fascinating fact about her home with me yesterday.  She said the home was originally built about 15 miles down the road.  In 1895 it was taken apart, all the pieces/parts numbered and then rebuilt on it's current location.  Sandi said, "The reason it was because Mr. Willis asked for his lady’s hand in marriage and she said … [Read more...]

Decorating in Blue and White

I don't know when I first fell in love with decorating in blue and white,  I just know I passionately love it.   We're talking, a-big-kiss-right-on-the-mouth, love it!   I think it may have started when I found this Ralph Lauren comforter set for my guest room.  I love flow blue transferware and have collected a few pieces over the years, so I guess the bedding reminded me of beautiful flow blue porcelain. … [Read more...]

I love blue and white so when I found this Ralph Lauren comforter set called, "Porcelain" I decided to go with a blue and white theme. In March 2010, I added a secretary to this room.  When I was working on adding some things to this room, I knew I wanted to mix it up a bit. I fell in love with this floral Sanderson … [Read more...]

Breakfast Table Setting with Blue Willow

Welcome to the 2nd Tablescape Tuesday! Recently, I asked Lynne (you may know her as Decorator101 at RMS) if she had any tablescape photos she would allow me to post for a Tablescape Tuesday. She sent me these amazing pics...they just took my breath away! I asked Lynne how she came to collect all the pieces in this wonderful table setting? Lynne said, "A few years ago, after I got through the green … [Read more...]
