A Blue & White Delight

“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them”
‭Ephesians‬ ‭2‬:‭10

If you’ve been following the blog for any length of time, you have probably noticed that I occasionally like to freshen up a few of the vignettes around our home!  Seasons’ change usually initiate the shuffling around of items, but this time, I decided to go with blue and white–a classic that stands through all seasons!  The definitive pair always looks fresh and it is a palette that works with just about every other color!  The golden hues of my hand-rubbed walls seemed to be a perfect backdrop for the oriental-themed vignette.  I simply moved a few things and…voila! A new look!  You can see our romantic Valentine inspired foyer here The oriental lamps have moved from the foyer to a guest room back to the foyer! Carolyne Roehm’s book “A Passion for Blue and White” was the perfect choice to use as the foundation for a small vignette! The miniature tea set was a gift from my friend, Kathy many years ago.  She finds the most unique items! The bejeweled clock is a tiny box for trinkets! The violin box is one of my favorites! I waited patiently for the lamps to go on sale many years ago!  Finally snagged them at one half off!  The shades are so different and were what caught my eye! Cobalt blue votive holds a lovely scented candle! A vintage Johnson Bros cup and saucer! I particularly like this vase with the monkeys! Detail of the lamp! Peacock feathers were placed in the vases next to the lamps. Feathers always add a little drama! “Whenever you place any color next to blue and white, something magical occurs:  All of a sudden, the focus sharpens and the visual field has clarity and power.” 
Carolyne Roehm

    Hi Pam! I’m new here and just had to comment about your beautiful blue and white vignette! Such a great job and I love the addition of peacock feathers! Its so true that magical things happen when blue and white is paired with other colors. I once displayed mine against sage green walls in a little girl’s bedroom. The bed and window were covered in a fluffy colorful floral print paired with blue and white gingham. Just lovely. And magical!

    • Deborah, thank you for taking time to comment. I ordered the violin box many years ago from a catalog and they have since gone out of business! There are no markings on it! I probably have 30 different miniature boxes! Have a lovely week! Pam
