Hello blue and white.

You know you have my heart.

If we were in high school together, I’d meet you at my locker after fifth-period geometry and wear your letter jacket.

If we were in college together, I’d sit beside you at the football game and go to your fraternity formal.

If we were newlyweds, I’d promise to love you forever and cook you blueberry pancakes.

And now?

After all these years?

I still adore you.

Just know. You always have a pillow in my living room and a picture on my wall and a chair at my table.

Especially if it looks like this one (which is FINALLY back in stock) 🙂

Here are 21 of my favorite blue and white home decor finds.

I get questions all the time about the curtains in this room. I actually made them from a fabric I ordered online, so you can’t order them.

But I just found these curtains that come in different lengths (including 108″) and are super affordable.

I also thought these were another amazing option (a little bold—but so pretty).

And I’m actually thinking about these curtains for one of the upstairs bedrooms.

It wouldn’t be a blue and white favorites list without this rug.

Or this rug.

Or this new rug that I found.

I love these striped chairs (that come in other colors) and this other blue and white chair that I found.

And this artwork over the mantel?

It came from etsy. It’s actually a print that I had stretched over a canvas. You can see it here.

We made the frame for it in under an hour with this DIY project.

And that polka dot pillow? You can see the DIY for it here.

And in other blue and white accessory news?

I love these pillows.

And these pillows.

And these super affordable pillows you can see here.

I love these blue and white striped chairs and this other dining chair option.

And these adorable blue and white slipcovers I’m about to order.

And this blue and white runner.

And these blue and white dishes.

And these blue and white lamps from Walmart.

This rug is a version of this dining room rug, except it’s only blue and white.

I find all this milk glass at yard sales.

And I love to mix it in with blue and white accessories.

Like these blue and white orbs.

And these vases.

See what I mean?

Blue and white never goes out of style.

It’s a classic and it’s here to stay.

And now?

I’ve got to go. I’ve got a hot date with a blue and white striped chair and a book. 🙂

    Love the blue and white. Did this for my home in Florida, and it looks beachy also. Ordered two of the blue and white chairs. They look great. Only comment I would make is that they are not very comfy. If it is looks that one is going for, they are wonderful. Everyone loves them - until they sit in them. They are on the hard side.

      Thank you for your post. I used to work in the furniture business & always said you shouldn’t buy sitting furniture without sitting in it first. But I bought the cute chair KariAnne used in her sister’s office and was disappointed that I hadn’t followed my own rule. It is not comfortable, very firm and straight. So being tempted again by these chairs you reminded me of my previous experience. Thanks, again.

    This is a fabulous post. I so enjoyed looking at each and everything. I just had my sunroom redone in blue and white and I am in love with it. FY I. They have the orbs a little cheaper at kirklands., if they are still available and they are the large ones. You are an awesome blogger. Love you and your post. I think we’re good friends. Lol

    My living room, dining room and kitchen are in an L shape and all seen in one glance. Do I buy rugs that are all alike or should I vary them? I love blue too😊

    Thanks for this blue and white post, I have blue and white in a lot of my house. I pinned this for refresh of rugs and pillows.

    I love blue & white as well. It all around my house. Like a few of the other readers say. It never goes out of style. Have a wonderful day. Much love, Rose

    I'm so so glad you posted this! The blue and white stripe chair is exactly what I've been looking for and I just ordered it. Can't wait until it arrives. I have been looking at pieces that take 4 - 6 months to arrive and this chair should be here in 17 days :) I'm a happy girl!! Love your home in all the beautiful blue and white!!

    I absolutely love the bold blue!! It’s such a fun pop of color that doesn’t feel dark at all! I love the way you painted the built ins, it’s simply gorgeous!

    Love the print on the drapes you are using upstairs. Reminds me of printed blue drapes I purchased on clearance from Pier One several years ago. They’re a 108 length that will need cutting. They match the blue and white printed chair from Pier One that I have in my living room. My intent is to size and hem the drapes and hang them in the living room this spring. Thank you for inspiring me. You Rock Star! Hope you will write another inspirational small book in the near future. You know this retired language arts teacher has always given A+’s to your work.

    Just love all the blue and white in your gorgeous home, KariAnne. Everything goes together so nicely. We have a lot of blue and white in our home. It's never hard to find something in blue and white when shopping that you absolutely need to bring home! My hubby always says: "You really needed that, I know!". Blue and white is such a classic and I never tire of it. Have a blessed week! Enjoy your gorgeous home with all your lovely blue and white touches!

    Can you tell us where you purchased the platter on the mantle? I have a friend who's looking for that very thing -- actually she lives right around the corner from you on Tucker! You probably know her -- Mary Nelle Cummins!

    I really need someone to guide me on how to start redoing a cottage. I am taking up all carpet, putting in wood floors, repainting, new tile in bathrooms, new molding and new vanities. Which is done first...what order? I apologize if this is not the correct place to ask, but I love your taste...it is so warm and inviting! Any guidelines would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
