What is it about blue and white ginger jars that are so awesome?? They are a little bit asian-inspired, a little bit traditional, and for whatever reason they are absolutely stunning in every single space.
Beautiful. Double check.
My mom has some beautiful planters in a similar pattern, and her dishes – the Blue Danube pattern – have always been a favorite of mine as well. Something about the royal blue and crisp white, combined with the ornate details (whether it’s floral, or a whole Japanese garden scene), makes them so lovely, and elegant.
Isn’t this just gorgeous filled with those ruffly full peonies???
They of course look right at home in traditional spaces – flanking an antiqued console (below), or displayed in a large collection like this formal dining room (above).
But they also look lovely in more contemporary spaces – it looks just as natural and pretty next to a piece of abstract art, and a coral lacquer box…
