If you haven't already been over to Enchanted Home, you'll want to go over after you finish this post because the wonderful Tina, who authors the incredibly gorgeous blog, has a great post up about decorating with dishes plus she's hosting a giveaway to my online shop, English Transferware! Details at the end of the post!
I know Tina loves blue and white (just look at her header and you'll know!) and has a collection of her own. In honor of Tina, I've decided to share some of my favorite images of rooms decorated with and often around blue transferware collections. You can see more rooms decorated with blue transferware on my Pinterest board.
To me, Charles Faudree is just about as synonymous with English transferware as he his with French Country Decorating...he seemed to always find a use for it in his incredibly detailed decorating schemes. Isn't this bedroom charming?
I love this next image from Decor Magazine. Look how the blue pieces are hung directly on the Secretary doors and left open for display. I LOVE this. I have wanted an antique Secretary Desk forever. I know tastes vary on the use of antlers but I love the way these are fitted into the recess atop the hutch. Love it.
Jonathan Vickers, a former designer at Colefax and Fowler has an amazing collection of blue transferware. This is just a glimpse of the dining room but you can see that the theme is carried into adjoining rooms.
Another glimpse of Vickers collection. Overkill? Uh-huh, no way.
Carol Glasser's home featured in Veranda magazine....her wonderful blue collection is displayed along with utilitarian / advertising wares in the living room.
I love the open shelving in this Charles Faudree kitchen, courtesty of Traditional Home. A huge tole tray takes center stage over the stove and is flanked by loads of blue transferware.
What a wonderful place to show off a collection...built behind the stairway! This incorporates a forgotten space into part of the kitchen decor. Love this!
Blue looks good with just about anything. I love the soothing effect of it against these green walls by Leslie Steinberg Interiors.
This is an arrangement I did at my shop (when I had one) and it has been featured in quite a few places. Blue being complimentary to orange cannot help but pop against the rusty-orange wall color.
This next example of decorating with blue transferware equals rustically refined perfection to me!
Just a dab'll do...for some of you...like we are shown here.
The huge meat platter and smaller one in front both add a little burst of color in an otherwise neutral scheme.
This Ralph Lauren bedroom is so charming and cozy...and I love the flow of arched platters which frame in the bed.
Blue is so pretty with pinks and reds...this vignette is simply stunning with layers upon layers of blue transferware and a bouquet of roses from whites to reds.
