Can I tell you how happy I am that you are here?
Just between us?
Don’t tell the other readers…
….but you’re my favorite.
The one with the coffee or the fruit or the diet coke or the blueberry muffin.
I just wanted to say thank you for showing up for spring refresh week.
Monday was all about the living room.
Tuesday was all about the kitchen.
Today we are in the blue and white dining room and if you are just joining us, my friend Leslie and I are going to go through our entire house this week and refreshing it room by room with a new item for each space.
We’re picking the same type of item, but each of us is going to feature that item in our own style, in our own spaces and I found something for the dining room that I’m going to use for years and years and years because it’s so classic.
Can you guess what it is?
I have been on the hunt for plain blue and white plates that I can use to layer in the dining room. I have so many different blue and white plates that I’ve collected at yard sales and I needed a common pattern to tie them all together.
And this set?
It’s perfectly perfect.
The ENTIRE set is under $40 and it comes with dinner plates, salad plates, bowls and coffee mugs and the blue goes with all different types of blues.
You can see it here.
To show you exactly what I mean, here’s the dinner plate layered with a patterned plate.
I bought the patterned plates at a yard sale, but I found a super similar pattern here.
The monogrammed linens came from Paddock Threads.
Here’s the entire dining room ready for summer.
There are more patterns in this room than I can count and the classic set of blue and white plates that I just got makes it all work.
I kept the table simple with just a runner instead of a patterned table cloth that would compete with all the blue and white dishes.
Last time I shared the blue and white planters, y’all almost bought them out.
They are the best find.
They come in a set of three and the entire set is under $40.
There are so many amazing blue and white patterned dishes out there on the market right now. You can hunt for them at yard sales like me or thrift stores or Amazon has tons of great inexpensive dishes (and the cutest melamine sets). I just filled my Amazon shop with tons of blue and white finds.
My dining room is so full of joy.
It can’t help it. All that pattern. All that color. All that blue and white.
If you have any questions about anything in the space, you can always shop my house here.
I’m doing an entire tour of the space on Instagram later and Leslie and I are going to share a new room and a new find each day this week.
Want to see what dining room find she picked?
You can find it here.
Wasn’t that fun?
A little blue and white.
A little spring refresh.
A space that makes me so happy.
And there’s always tomorrow, too.
I can’t WAIT for you to see what I found for the craft room.
