Fresh and crisp with a classic appeal, the combination of blue and white is the world's most popular decorating scheme. From Chinese tiles to French fabrics, from the deep blues and bright whites of Greece to the pastels of Wedgwood china, these colors can be found around the globe, used in the most beautiful ways. With Blue & White Living, you can bring those same styles into your own home, whether you are decorating a grand mansion or a country cottage, reupholstering a sofa, or simply draping a quilt on a bed. Stephanie Hoppen, owner of a decorative antiques gallery in London, is the ideal guide to blue and white's exciting possibilities. In Blue & White Living, Hoppen highlights the major rooms of the house--bedrooms, dining areas, living rooms, and bathrooms--in addition to devoting chapters to collectibles, fabrics, pictures, and exteriors. With careful attention to each room, she showcases the colors in all their decorative forms, including curtains, carpets, paint, pillows, crystal, porcelain, upholstery, and more. And since the book features hundreds of full-color photographs, it will immediately inspire, educate, and demonstrate why the combination of blue and white is both fresh and versatile.          Blue & White Living is a must for collectors and decorators who are interested in creating unlimited variations on a timeless theme. Stephanie Hoppen owns The Stephanie Hoppen Gallery in London, where she is an expert dealer in decorative antiques, books, and maps. She works as an independent consultant to both private and corporate clients and is developing the merchandising of her picture archive. The author of Decorating with Pictures (Potter, 1991), she resides in London. With the practical inspiration of Stephanie Hoppen's decorating expertise and Fritz von der Schulenburg's vivid photographs, the classic look of blue and white finds hundreds of exciting new interpretations.
