Classic Style: Blue and White

Carolyne Roehm is known for many things, but especially for marvelous work in blue and white.  Such a clean, crisp look...and one that works in any season, with many colors and for almost all design styles!

I have always been a fan of blue and white....

 
....and I find that I can mix less expensive modern pieces

 
...with harder to find antiques.

 
My house is French in design, with wonderful light and open spaces.  For the most part, the walls are very neutral, so I don't have pictures to show you with blue and white mixed with color.  But, click over to this wonderful article on Monograms and Manicures to revisit Hopsy's kitchen re-do.  Isn't her blue and white magnificent on that bold pink?
