Blue and White Monday for Summer Style

House Beautiful

Aren't these Quadrille fabrics amazing?  My friend Junell, from

Seeker's Bazaar

, sent me a link to this image knowing I'd love it.

The three images above are from an incredible condo designed by

Micky Hurley

.  I'm over the moon for the white sofa with the blue piping.  And from what I see on Pinterest, I'm not alone.

Sarah Richardson

This is from the book

Diamond Baratta Design

.  The clean crispness of this room is fantastic.

And of course these four images are from Carolyne Roehm's

A Passion for Blue and White

.  Having a picnic in Dallas isn't the least bit appealing at this point in the summer, but these photos are lovely.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  Happy Monday!

Blue and White Thursday - Store Finally OPEN!

I have two things I want to tell you today.  First, my new store is FINALLY open!  I'll be adding new items all the time.  I have several I'll be adding in the next few days, in fact.  So, keep checking in.  The other thing I'm excited to share is the illustration above.  I needed something that combined my prints and the blue and white.  Laura Row, of Spun Sugar Paperie, created this for me.  I'm absolutely thrilled with the job she did, and how lovely she was to work with.  Be sure to check out her fabulous store!

 To celebrate the opening of the store, I'm sharing a few beautiful blue and white images.  Enjoy, and have a lovely day!

My post today is all my daughter's idea.  She's out of school and thought I should have lovely swimming pool photos the day after Memorial Day to start off the summer.  She also named the post with a song title she thought was amusingly ironic with these beautiful images.  Happy Tuesday!

Blue and White Memorial Day Monday

The five images above are from A Passion for Blue and White by Carolyne Roehm.

The two above are from Alberto Pinto's Table Settings.

I hope you are enjoying the long weekend.  My daughter graduated from eighth grade Friday and we are so happy to have some long overdue down time for our family.  So, would you prefer to be in one of these Carolyne Roehm settings or the beachside Alberto Pinto table?
