I'll never forget the story that antiques dealer John Rosselli told me about how Babe Paley once said to him, "you know John, you can never be too rich or too think or own too much blue and white porcelain." While blue and white Chinese porcelain looks great year round, it has always been associated with summer for me. It looks perfect paired with lighter shades and seagrass rugs, both indoors and out. I regret passing up some beautiful blue and white pieces recently at the flea market and may have to start collecting it again. The first place I am headed tomorrow though is down to Pearl River Mart to look for a planter for a tall topiary like I saw in the new AERIN store. You can also find great pieces at William Wayne if you are looking to add more blue and white into your life.
