The blue and white trend is still going strong. The more I see of it, the more I like it. It creates a feeling of summer, the Mediterranean, Morocco, or Asia. It intrigues me that the blue and white combination is adopted in so many different cultures, yet they are all different and distinctively unique.
I found some interesting pieces lately that I would love to add to my home.
These Thai Rice pots from Tozai Home are real eye catchers. I love the small details, and the different patterns. You can buy them as a set.
Inspired by the Turkish tiles from Iznik, these pillows from Go’Round are reminiscent of the blue mosque, the Ottoman culture, and a fresh and ethnic addition to any interior.
Chantal Césure is a ceramic artist who creates beautiful stoneware pieces adorned with batik or the triumphant indigo of “tie-dye”, revealing her fascination with Africa.
Myriam Chemla is a young ceramist who gets her inspiration for her porcelain from moving clouds cut through with a faint graffiti.
Suus Notenboom has a small shop and work space in Rotterdam where she creates the most beautiful ceramic pieces. A few weeks ago I highlighted her plant markers, and I have a feature article and interview with her coming up in the next two weeks.
The new blue and white collection from Clayre & Eef (available at Intratuin and giftshops) is stunning. It’s a bit nostalgic yet modern and serene.
