Oh my word! I love blue and white decor so much. I really don’t think it ever goes out of fashion?
It is so classic and heirloom-ish (so not a word, apologies to any English Majors reading this). You really don’t have to spend a fortune to get this look at home.
Blue and white decor is actually called CHINOISERIE. Here is the meaning and pronunciation of the Chinoiserie:
noun: chinoiserie the imitation or evocation of Chinese motifs and techniques in Western art, furniture, and architecture, especially in the 18th century.
- chinoiserie objects or decorations.
- plural noun: chinoiseries
- “a piece of chinoiserie”
late 19th century: from French, from chinois ‘Chinese.’
Keep scrolling to the end and I will show you my top 10 blue and white pieces that are under $50 they are so gorgeous.
White Kitchen with blue and white touches
Good grief I love this kitchen. I love white kitchens to begin with and when we moved into our home I made my husband promise that we would paint the kitchen white. We did, I love it! I love the very simple detail of the greenery in the chinoiserie pots. Those chairs though, gorgeous!
Collection of blue and white pots
Again another collection of pots, the more the merrier and you can mix and match patterns.
Olive Leaves in blue and white pots
This collection from One Kings Lane is truly exquisite. I just love the greenery, I think it’s Olive leaves in the pots. You can buy the most amazingly realistic silk olive branches. Have a look here
Simple flowers in blue and white pots
What makes this tablescape is actually the Antique Oak table. The flowers in the chinoiserie pots are divine too, and most of them could be grocery store purchases (but ssshh, don’t tell anyone!)
Chinoiserie garden stools
Chinoiserie garden stools are so lovely used indoors. They are a perfect place to perch a cup of tea or coffee.
Open shelving and blue and white
The open shelving just cries out for blue and white! I love this example.
Blue and White Thanksgiving Table
I would never have thought to set a Thanksgiving table with blue and white but it’s a perfect combo with orange. This table is stunning with all the blue and white.
Pink Florals with Blue and White
Really all colors pair well with Chinoiserie, it’s what makes it so perfect.
Oranges with Blue and White
Another beautiful tablescape with pops of orange. I simply love the idea of putting the jars in height order, a gorgeous idea.
Eclectic Blue and White
And finally, you really can mix blue and white and be eclectic with your design. I know not everyone agrees with taxidermy but I live in Texas and it’s kind of de rigueur so fortunate that you can make it look more elegant.
