Blue and White

I've been feeling inspired by blue and white lately. It's classical, cool, and somehow, simultaneously conjures up images of hot summers and heaps of snow. Kind of fabulous how drastically one can alter the effect just by changing the shade of blue, right? Powder blue and white looks dreamy and ethereal (think Gustavian interiors), navy is nautical, and prussian blue lends itself to chinoiserie motifs.

Enough said. Since I'm not actively trying to put anyone to sleep here, I will prevent myself from further waxing poetic about blue and white.
