Blue and White




Blue & White 
It has always been a favorite of mine.
Can't have too many of them.








Love these! 
Especially the square one on the tile floor. 








So beautiful.








Love this on the table.








Street car- how beautiful...








Amazing!








Staircase to heaven with blue & white.
 Yes!








Love those plates.








What a beautiful room.








Tiles on a wall.








You can mix it up also.








Love the blue wall color.








Nothing else says it so well.








Stunning!








Any shape will do!


These are a few of my favorites blue and white.
Dear readers,
tell me which one you liked.
Longing to hear!




Love, 




Peggy

The Most Underused Furniture - Screens






I have always adored screens, any shape or color. 
They are the most underused furniture in the home.
Here are some wonderful examples.






In the dining room! 
Simply wonderful.






In the office - this one is see through.







Love how he divided the room.




unknown



Screens can be hung on the wall.






Placed behind headboards.






Modern or traditional 






Between 2 doors - screens know no bounds.



 unknown




Love the mirrors on this screen.







Old mirrors make this screen and table match.









Love this one!






They can be used to hide many things.
These are bifold wallpapered doors that look like a screen when opened.



 unknown



My, my - I just adore this.






How divine is this one?
I happen to love blue & white pottery.



So tell me dear readers,
what do you think of these screens?
Aren't they the most underused furniture or what?





Love, 




Peggy

Pantone Color Of The Year 2015 - Marsala





I must say it is not one of my favorite colors,

but here goes Marsala. 
It is Pantone's color of the year.





Pantone Color Of The Year - Marsala

Much like the fortified wine that gives Marsala its name, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness. This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.

The Versatility of Marsala

Equally appealing to men and women, Marsala is a stirring and flavorful shade for apparel and accessories, one that encourages color creativity and experimentation
Flattering against many skin tones, sultry and subtle Marsala is a great go-to color for beauty, providing enormous highlight for the cheek, and a captivating pop of color for nails, shadows lips and hair.
Dramatic and at the same time grounding, the rich and full-bodied red-brown Marsala brings color warmth into home interiors
An earthy shade with a bit of sophistication, texture is the story in print and packaging. A matte finish highlights Marsala’s organic nature while adding a sheen conveys a completely different message of glamour and luxury. 







Here it looks pretty good!






The leather sofa matches the wall exactly.

I have been a fan of lavender and purple since I was a little girl.
