Crate + Barrell = Fresh Finds in Blue and White!


Here are some fresh finds from Crate + Barrel to add nautical but nice touches to your home this summer.

Sleek sophisticated pinstripe blue dinnerware (now on sale) that will have you setting your table with contemporary style. The dejeuner apron + potholder + mitt (also on sale) makes a great gift, along with these porcelin blue and white plates with patterns inspired by antique Japanese linen handkerchiefs (great for a wall display, too!). Looking for a great room enhancing mirror? Look no further, the felix floor mirror in high-gloss white lacquer really opens up your space. If a white hot table is what you seek, your kitchen will love you for choosing the quantum table. I love the chrome legs and the versatile drop-leaf design. Oh, and that's not all. Have you seen the petrie 1960s style sofa? It's so sweet with it's slim legs and tufted button cushions. Yum.


Care for a spot of tea? The roulette blue band tea pot (with matching sugar bowl and creamer) is perfectly tailored with it's navy accent band around the rim. Love the curves on this milky white cloud vase (quite jon adler, eh?). More coordinating goodies from the roulette collection. This time, blue band s+p shakers. Since we're in the kitchen again, let's look at the archive blue band sugar and creamer. It's subtle texture is added by incised lines that are inspired by ancient Japanese ceramic traditions. Who would have known? Finally, the gracie chandelier, a modern interpretation of an 18th century Georgian chandelier in a high gloss white enamel finish. I'd love to see this in white frosted glass and no shades, wouldn't that be stunning?

P.S. A great sofa for your 2nd home on the Cape. Clean, crisp, it's ships ahoy with this Huntley Grand sofa.
