Blue and White Inspiration

I'm needing a little more guest bedroom inspiration today and I found some in my inbox.


The antique Quebec bedroom set we were planning to pick up didn't work out. Lesson learned though, I shouldn't blog about furniture finds until we have the pieces in our hands. I'm a lot bit disappointed, but I know we will find something we love one of these days. 

So, I was happy to discover a 'Trend Alert Botanicals' slideshow link in a Country Living online newsletter. The photos really jumped out at me today. Our guest bedroom (a work in progress) is mostly white, and I like it, but I'm still thinking of putting more blue back in to the scheme. According to Country Living, we will see lots of blue and white botanicals in spring decor this year. I'm all for that!



I have said it before, but blue just makes me happy. And just about any shade of blue too. Blue with white, or blues with a white background, is so pretty.



I'm going to have to shop our home, and maybe plan a trip to the fabric store, to see what I can come up with.

I hope you are having a great week and thanks for stopping by.

  1. Such pretty inspirations....I love blue & white too - in fact my childhood room had blue & white flowered wallpaper that my mom let me pick out...that room had such a nice feel to it. Your guest room is already lovely!

  5. That's too bad the furniture didn't work out but I'm sure there is something better out there for you. I really like these blue and white floral theme photos. I think that would work well in your guest room. Pamela

  8. That's too bad, but I'm sure you'll find another set soon. I love those blue dishes, they remind me of mom's little tea set she had as a girl that we got to play with once in a while.

  9. Now that Spring is here, it is the perfect time to find something like that right now. I'm sure you'll find something you love! I really like blue and white too. It's so classic and summery.

  11. I collect blue and white china and just love it. I saw that photo with the bed and said to myself "I should get that duvet cover (if that's what it is)."
    Sorry to hear your furniture buy fell through, that was a great set for a steal (did the sellers decide it was worth more?)

  12. Oh dear, I'm sorry to hear that you didn't get the Quebec bed. But, you have some great inspiration, I know it's going to be very restful and pretty when you're done with it.
    Hugs, Cindy

  13. I'm a huge fan of blue and white! And that bedroom looks like it belongs in a cottage by the sea. I would love a vacation there!

  14. Gorgeous. The plates in the second photo are so rich in color and beautiful. If I could reach through the screen and snatch the middle plate on the first plate rack(rung) up, I would. I'm finding myself heading down color road this season...and blue and white is certainly on the menu along with a few others. Love your table that you just painted, too. Sorry that your furniture didn't work out but you will find something that you love even more.
