Case of the blues....again

It would seem that we are all obsessed with one thing or another to do with design. AND, that we often influence each other's obsessions by posting our own inspirations. Well, as you know I'm a sucker for white combined with anything...recently it's been yellow. But awhile back I began a new obsession, when Anna from Absolutely Beautiful Things posted one Friday, an image (below), that got me thinking about more these days about blue and white, this in time in decor not just art! So here's my inspiration, enjoy!!

I might have to go round up that platter pour moi! said...

I love the paper that Tom Scheerer
used. And the Timothy Whealon room with that bold geometric carpet.
Great inspiration. Thanks
