Blue and White Interiors

I have always been attracted to blue and white colors. There is something bright, crisp, and pure about the combination.

Many of the items shown below pick up from and/or interpret designs from blue and white Chinese porcelains. Blue and white porcelain became popular in the Tang dynasty (618-907) when cobalt blue was imported from Persia. Over the next centuries, new styles and techniques of blue and white porcelains were developed in China. Learn more about the history and developments here.

If you’re interested, the development, significance, and impact of the color blue throughout history is fascinating to research (listen to a short version on this podcast).
