Blue + white inspiration...


Kitchens are always one of my favourite rooms. The blue and white gives this kitchen and dining room a beautiful fresh feel....I love how light this space is.

and this last photo makes me want to set my table for afternoon tea. Maybe its because mine has work spread all over it this afternoon! Hope you all have a wonderful start to your week....Ax

I love both of those scenes.

They are a fusion of relaxation and romance.

I'm not meaning boy/girl romance - I mean it really makes my heart melt and flutter.

I actually think the blue stools make the kitchen - look at the light coming through.

Lovely find - thank you

Dear Amanda,
Such a beautiful and fresh looking kitchen. Blue always looks good but it's a colour that I never think to use. I must remember blue for my future decorating projects.
.....and, that last photo looks just like my sisters garden table where we sat and had breakfast most mornings when I stayed with her. Couldn't have done it if it had been this week. It has rained and rained here for the last couple of days !!
Hope you and yours are well. Much love. XXXX

White and blue always work really well together, like the bright, fresh and clean feel of the room too and the way the room utilises natural light, thanks for sharing these great pics.
