A Little Blue and White Porcelain pick me up

Is a nice visual treat for the mid-week doldrums…

Less is not always more!  I love the grouping of these pieces and their pretty blooms.  They contrast perfectly with the light Swedish furnishings.

Interesting surprise to use a great weathered exterior bench instead of a console table… don’t you love how casually these pieces and books are placed?

Another lovely grouping… the exact reason why I love solid upholstery so much is that it sets of beuatiful accessories so well!

Great mix of modern, antique, neutral and color in this room.  Love the hot pink blossoms next to the blue ginger jar!

 

wisteria happiness pots

For a quick find and a relatively painless purchase, Wisteria has a set of three appropriately named “Happiness Pots,” which were traditional wedding gifts in Chinese culture.  I love their disclaimer, “Offered here in three sizes, the degree of wedded bliss does not vary with the proportions.”
