Interior Of The Week - Shabby Chic With Touches Of Blue

Don't you just love this light filled home with a touch of shabby chic? 






















I just love the blue circular pedestal table and blue and white china, such a fresh Spring look.  Just look at the rustic weathered sideboard, it reminds me a little of the French Shutters I bought for my bedroom makover.   

Blue is so back! If your want to introduce some blue into your home you might like this little slide show I put together on blue and white interiors. Blue and white also features in this months NZ House & Garden Magazine.... gosh I posted my blue and white feature before them...I must be on track and I own masses of blue and white Chinese ginger jars I collected while living in Asia ☺By the way NZ House & Garden is an awesome magazine, probably one of the best no matter where you live in the world. When I buy my monthly copy it's bliss, I take myself off to a sunny corner with a cup of tea and revel in it!...and in case your wondering....no I don't get anything to promote it, I genuinely think it is such a great magazine because the interiors, articles and recipes dominate the magazine, not the adverts. I also feel that New Zealander's have developed such amazing style and design so you can see some beautiful homes gracing its pages.

    1. Aren't they lovely images and I agree with the outdoor one. I used to have a lovely garden like this in previous home but sadly I now have a postage stamp piece of grass (which Poppy is vast turning into a digging pit!, and my borders are hedges. I do plan to do something special though for next year and working on some lovely vivid green boxed hedging and some appropriately placed pots of flowers.

  3. I love these soft beautiful tones. It adds such an elegance to the space. But not only is it elegant it's warm and inviting. The outdoor space is wonderful. I would love it if you could share this wonderful post at our WIW linky party. Hope to see you there.

  4. Complete gorgeousness, Poppy! So calm and serene looking. I started adding pale blues/grays back in to my home early this spring because it helped make it look just a bit more Swedish to me - which I love! Blue and white in the spring/summer is just perfection! :)
