Nitik II from China Seas, Quadrille

This is Natik II from China Seas, Quadrille in Jungle Green Brown on Tint.  I've been thinking about this print after having posted the image below on Tuesday. 

I think it's a fantastic print that looks so good in all of its colorways and in every application imaginable.  Below are images via quadrillefabrics.com. They were taken between 2008 and now. This print, whether used in fabric or wallpaper still looks so fresh to me.







I especially love it paired with the Henriot Floral as shown in the 3rd and 4th images.  Quadrille does these two prints in many gorgeous colorways, but I'd be thrilled to see a pink and red combination added.  What a gorgeous, happy bedroom that could create.  


Blue and White Monday -- Blue and White Fabric



Ralph Lauren "La Garoupe Indigo"

When Alessandra Branca pinned this fabric to my group Pinterest board, "All About Blue and White," I knew I HAD TO HAVE it.  I just received the two yards I ordered, and took these photos to share with you.  I thought I'd use it in my daughter's bedroom as pillow fabric, but now I'm on the fence.  With everything else going on in there, it may be too much. Which is fine.  It would be gorgeous in my family room, and there is absolutely no chance I won't be using it somewhere. It's beautiful in these pics, but even better in person.

Fabrics have been a big part of Blue and White Mondays recently. First, I had Tiffany Jones, of Tiffany Jones Interiors, sharing some of her favorite blue and white fabrics.  The following week, Andrea, of The Glam Pad was here sharing her favorite budget friendly blue and white fabrics.  Since I was sharing my new fabric today, I thought I'd include some of my top blue and white faves.  I haven't included every single one as some of them unfortunately don't have large enough photos to share, and that would be an obnoxiously long post to have to get through!  I suspect you may see some of your favorites here.

And, one more thing -- did you see my last Blue and White Bash Linking Party?  If not, you should.  So much beautiful blue and white to enjoy!  I'd love for you to join me for the next one, so please put it on your schedule, bloggers!






Blue and White Monday + News



The photo above is from the former townhouse of Frances Schultz. She worked on it with the designer John Oetgen around 20 years ago.  When I visited her blog recently and saw the photos of her townhouse that were featured in Veranda, I recognized them immediately.  I loved that feature and kept that issue.  I remember being so fascinated by this photo and also the one of her bedroom. Go here to see more about the article.  

Below, I have more blue and white gorgeousness for you.

If you're a blogger, chances are you've done a post that includes blue and white.  Blue and white fabric, wallpaper, porcelain, apparel, a party, etc.  I'd be absolutely thrilled if you'd link your post up on September 30th. And if you're a blogger and you don't have one, but you'd like to join us, just create one between now and then.  Or the day of works, too.  I thought it would be fun to share our blue and white posts here and have a Blue and White Bash.  Who knows -- maybe we could do it once a month on a Monday.  Sounds fun to me!


Lots of you may have never done a link up before.  It's actually very easy. Really, you just click and follow the directions.  There are 2 or 3 very easy steps to follow.  If you join me next Monday, I'd love for you to let your readers know you're here.  And if you have a blogging friend with a penchant for blue and white, let them know to be here, too!






Blue & White Monday with Tiffany Jones


Remember a couple of weeks ago when I shared Tiffany Jones Interiors with you?  You all loved her work, and oh my goodness it was pinned and pinned and pinned.  And, I wasn't a bit surprised. Tiffany is an amazingly talented designer in Dallas, and I'm very excited about her new blog. You'll be happy to see that I've got her here today as my guest.  

Hello TPP Fans!  I am so excited to be guest posting today on Blue & White Monday and bringing you my current favorite Blue and White fabrics.  I hope you will enjoy the collection.

I always think adding a little "animal" to a room is a great way to update and add a "wow" factor.  My current favorite is Les Touches by Brunschwig & Fils.  It looks like a modern leopard print and I think it is fabulous!

Brunschwig & Fils....Le Touches in Blue
The sophistication of Jim Thompson is amazing.  His fabric designs are like no other. I find them so modern and updated...In fact, I have just purchased these two for pillows in my living room! I cannot wait to see them.

Jim Thompson -  Buxara: Navy

Jim Thompson - Indiana: Clear Sky

I have 2 current favorites from Quadrille.  I adore the "freshness" of both of these China Seas patterns.   They are so crisp and clean and make me so happy.




This Navy Blue velvet with white pinstripes from Pindler and Pindler makes me want to curl up with a good book and spend the day in front of the fire.  It is so luxurious.  I must find a place to use this in my house! 


And speaking of velvet... this modern blue and white check from Telefina is amazing!


A great blue and white geometric pattern from the Thom Filicia Collection for Kravet has it all...A classic pattern plus a raised embroidery embellishment.  Absolutely stunning.


This modern, geometric fabric from Thibaut's Avalon Collection is so French and yet so sassy.  I have been admiring this since the collection launched and I am dying to find just the right project to give it a home!


In my world, it doesn't get any better than a blue and white buffalo check.  It is just so classy and timeless. My very favorite of all is this one from Manuel Canovas.  The color is perfection in a "french blue". Absolutely heaven.



Thank you for sharing your Blue & White Monday with Monday with me!  xx, Tiffany

Thank you, Tiffany for sharing these gorgeous fabrics with us today!  

Tiffany has a website, Tiffany Jones Interiors, where you can see her lovely work, and her fantastic new blog can't be missed.  Her Pinterest boards are incredible, too!

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

Seeker's Bazaar

The three images above are from an incredible condo designed by

This is from the book

.  The clean crispness of this room is fantastic.

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

I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  Happy Monday!
