Ideas for decorating with the ever-classic combination of blue and


Great ideas for blue and white decor.

Lately I’ve really fallen in love with classic blue and
white decor. Not in huge doses, but instead little bits here and there since I
tend to get tired of too much of any one color these days. One of the best
things about decorating with blue and white is how versatile it is. It can be
classic, vintage, coastal, masculine, and more.

Today I’m sharing a few of my favorite ways to decorate using this classic
color combo with the help of some of my talented blogger friends.

Dish Displays

One of the easiest and most common ways to add pops of blue is by
displaying dishes. You can hang them on a wall, set them on your
counter, display them in a cabinet, or any other way you want show them

blue and white dishes with copper accents

We inherited my MIL’s beloved but small collection of blue and white dishes
several years ago and I’ve added to the collection. I still don’t have a lot
but pick up pieces as I find them.

Love the copper accents with the blue and white.

I scored the copper pieces at an estate sale a few weeks ago and bought them
with the intention of selling them in my shop. I like them so much I’m not
sure I can part with them though! What do you think? Keep or sell?

Love the blue and white dishes in the antique corner cabinet.

And my own mama has a wonderful collection of
Blue Willow dishes, some antique and some newer. Don’t they look gorgeous in her old corner
cabinet at their lake house? Please excuse the fishing rods. 🙂

perfect example of that. Don’t her blue willow dishes look great in her
