Southern Living Idea House

Another month, another edition of Currently Craving. This month I am head over heels for blue and white. It started with a delicate piece of blue and white striped fabric I bought to make curtains for the nursery. I loved how the curtains looked so much that I bought a blue and white striped dress so that I could match my curtains. I laughed it off feeling very Gone With The Wind. It would have stopped there, but I noticed that every time I walked into my closet my eye immediately went to the blue and white striped dress, so I bought a light blue skirt since, well, I must like light blue. I have bought 2 more blue and white striped dresses since then and have decided to turn my attention to filling our home with blue and white now too. So far I have filled our flower beds with blue hydrangeas and our pots with blue annuals and herbs. I am currently on the hunt for blue and white wallpaper for the powder room and thinking about painting my kitchen cabinets light blue! Somebody stop me! Or don't. I really love it!

Blue and white is timeless. It's a combination that looks just as much at home in the Hamptons as it does in Charleston. It can be coastal, but I think it's a classic coastal, not a tacky coastal. It has a way of feeling styled and posh and at the same time airy and fresh. I never used to be a blue person but something in me just switched and now I can't seem to get enough of it.
