For some time now I've been collecting blue and white vintage china and have got enough pieces finally to decorate the hutch in my living room. I love the look, as I'm sure you know if you've been following me for some time, and have switched things up a bit creating a more romantic feel to the room by adding lots of florals and soft yellow hues as well.
I love how the blue stands out against the white and the detail that these pieces have. I have never really actually collected anything before so I'm excited about starting this new collection. I plan on finding some larger plates to hang on the wall around the hutch as well. I've seen so much inspiration on the web and they all look so beautiful.
Here's a close up of some of my pieces.
I particularly like the gold around this Blue Willow plate that seems to have faded some.
I bought some vintage tea cups online and unfortunately I received two broken pieces. There was really no way I could have glued the pieces together.. That was quite upsetting. The guy could have done a better job packing.. ugh
How cute are these vintage Sake cups? Love these!
I also found three beautiful Chinese vases. In this picture you can see my new curtains. I made two matching slipcovers for the chairs in my living room and will get around to making the other four chairs when I have some time.
I painted the bookshelf I have in my living room white to brighten up that corner which was looking a little too dark to me lately. That project only took me a day and what a difference it makes.
Here's another view of my collection so far. I'd like the plate wall decor to be around the cabinet on each side. Not too sure about placement yet though.
I'm not entirely done decorting yet, so it's still a work in progress.
I will say though that Spring has officially sprung in my living room LOL. I'm done with this cold weather! Adding some fresh flowers to the space really warms things up.. I want to make a habit of always having fresh flowers in the house. Their colors are always so beautiful, don't you think?
I'll post more pictures once the room is complete and maybe I'll have enough plates for the wall decor!
