Blue and White Country Kitchen

Authentic Victorian style country kitchen in blue and white.

I really wanted a blue-and-white farmhouse kitchen. It’s such a refreshing combination—and one that highlights my blue-and-white porcelain dishes and cups. I’ve been collecting for years, often finding pieces in secondhand stores, ever since an aunt gave me a teacup on my 21st birthday. But I knew getting the right shade of blue for the walls could be tricky. So I took a teacup with me to the paint store!

Now the walls beautifully set off plates, antiques and other treasures. Among them is a flow-blue plate mosaic—I’d found the shards while digging in the yard and glued it together, complete except for one piece. It hangs near the working antique telephone Steve built, using original parts he’d found online. There’s also a button-tree picture I made using buttons selected from my mother’s button jar.

Blue Bathroom Love

I adore this bright and loud blue bathroom!

Be daring. A tub’s exterior is coated in oxide primer and painted with latex or oil paint in the same bold hue as the walls.

Chinoiserie Dining Room

Gorgeous blue and white chinoiserie filled dining room in the garage of Sally Swing’s Berkley Cottage featured in House Beautiful. I love this type of ambience, this type of kookiness mixed with vintage finds and loads of personality.

Blue and white chinoiserie, gifts from friends mixed with flea-market finds, defines the look Sally Swing envisioned. Like everything else, the dining tables and chairs — from her mother — got a wash of white enamel. Only the buffet was left unpainted to add visual weight to the room.

The one-car garage turned dining room opens onto a fenced courtyard. A stone path leads to the main house.

“Medium old” antique plates printed with a Blue Willow pattern are all part of the mix of dinnerware Sally displays with her linens in a glass-doored cabinet, which was made for a beloved uncle in China. He also purchased the 1940s blue stemware — at Woolworth’s in downtown San Francisco.

A dragonfly-patterned teacup is combined with vintage Ralph Lauren salad plates, a Danish stoneware dinner plate, and flea-market Chinese flatware.

China, the cat, sits on a painted chair covered in Ming fabric from Manuel Canovas. Mirrors bring in the light.
