Blue and White Monday with Design Chic

How exciting to have the lovely Beth and Kristy, from Design Chic, here!  Everything on their blog is divine, as is the gorgeousness they are sharing today.

We were so thrilled when Jennifer asked us to be a part of her series "Blue and White Monday." This timeless color combination is one of our favorites -- just like The Pink Pagoda! We absolutely adore Jennifer's beautiful blog, flawless taste and eye for design. Thank you so much for having us, Jennifer!
Blue and white. It isn't only for porcelain. We adore the classic color combination anywhere, but especially by the sea.

A pop of blue in a neutral palette adds life and depth. Aren't those round pillows so much fun?

Blue and white may be what we think of little boys, but the pale, soothing palette is a perfect choice for little girls as well!

One of the best things about a blue and white color scheme is that everything doesn't have to match exactly. As long as they blend, incorporating a range of blues makes a stunning statement.

Just a touch of blue in an otherwise white room is one of our favorite ways to achieve that spa-like feel.

What an incredibly relaxing place to lounge!

This kitchen could be even more delicious than the food that comes out of it.

This adorable child's bath is perfect for kiddos, but, when they are all grown up, the blue sink will still be beautiful.

Blue water and white decor... A favorite blue and white!

The blue and white palette from the sand and water continues seamlessly onto the front porch, creating a soothing sitting spot.

Ahhh... The ultimate blue and white. A sparkling sea and a rocky shore!

Thanks again so much for having us today, Jennifer! We loved being with you and your readers.

Kristy and Beth, I appreciate your being here so much!  Thank you for sharing your beautiful taste with us, and inspiring our Monday!

That blue tile is killing me. I want to redo a bathroom with it. Oh, and the pool...still have pool envy.

Love them.
Nothing is more relaxing than the bedrooms above...So peaceful. How could one not have a good night's sleep!

Gorgeous rooms ... we bought a historic home on the water (but not the sea) and I've been trying to decide upon a color scheme. Pale blue and white is a top contender ... and one I've not used before but after today's images is feeling more right than ever!
