My blue and white obsession continues and my collection keeps growing. It has taken some time, but collections aren’t meant to happen overnight. If you’ve never used any blue and white pieces in your home but are itching to give it a try, I’m offering my tips for getting started and sharing some of the best blue and white decor I’ve found on Amazon.
-It works with almost anything else. It sounds weird but you can ignore almost all other patterns when adding blue and white into your space and just go for it.
-Smaller pieces are usually easier to find at thrift stores so when I come across a jar or vessel with bulk, I grab it up. If you want your pieces to look more like a collection, I’d invest in a few bigger pieces to get started and fill in with smaller bowls, vases, etc., as you go.
-It’s a perfect bookcase filler. I love mixing my pieces in among books for the pattern that it adds. (I have several of the happiness jars on my shelves. These are a little harder to find. I’ve thrifted most of mine and you can often find them on Etsy.
-Blue and white is a fun addition to a kitchen. It can break up some of the solid cabinetry and add pretty pattern to open shelving or even functional storage to your countertop.
-Yes, you can mix blue and black in the same room. I hear people ask this and my response is not to overthink it. As with most things in (my) decorating, find what you love and it will all (eventually) work together. There are no rules.
-Mix old with new to move your collection along. I’ve thrifted the majority of my pieces but I’ve also bought new online or from big box stores. I’m sharing some of my favorite blue and white pieces currently on Amazon below.
