Blue and White combinations are refreshing and soothing all at the same time.  Gretchen Johnson, an artist , who paints wonderful, happy paintings perfect for a summer-house (visit her at: had her home featured in BHG several years ago and it still looks fresh today…   In her Dining room she used Brunschwig & Fils Bromley Hall fabric on the Dining chairs as seen above.  One of my favorite fabrics for a Kitchen or Dining area!  Today I have a selection of remnants available including Bromley Hall!!

I am loving Daryl Carter…………  

His work is fresh, inviting and inspirational!  

He uses blue and white porcelain in an almost spiritual way…

Daryl Carter -The New Tradtional


Daryl Carter, The New Traditional - a must have


The New Traditional by Daryl Carter is a fabulous inspiration for those of us mixing traditional with modern, his mastery of mixing often eludes most.  His ability to ‘keep it clean and cohesive’ is amazing!  

I am loving the contemporary abstract art as backdrops…  

Think Rothko…  


I love the paintings that evoke a sense of water…

    Hi Laurie!
    Good to see you back blogging! I too love blue and white. For me, it’s in the form of antique b/w ginger jars! I think they are such a classic design element. There were several years where I didn’t love my collection quite as much, but something about moving into the farmhouse has made me love it all over again! I even have two large antique vases on one of the porches!
    Can’t wait to hear all about your new adventures!
    We’ll talk soon;)
