Blue & White, Done Totally Right

Blue & White, Done Totally Right

Certain things, they just don’t go out of style. Classic blue and white décor has stood the test of time, since Chinese porcelain used for decoration made its debut in the 14th century. (That’s 700 years, y’all). We’re giving tips on blue and white décor and how to add them into your home.

 

  1. Wallpaper

In the bedroom, powder room, living area—we’ve been spending lots of time swooning over blue and white wallpaper samples lately. Wallpaper makes such a statement and is a classy and elegant way to add color to your space. Sidenote: Our founder, Heloise, recently wallpapered her bathroom in classic blue and white, and we are low-key obsessed. Check out our Instagram for recent photos.

  1. Ginger Jars

If you’ve spent any time on our site, you may have noticed our love for ginger jars. On bookshelves, on the floor—can’t stop, won’t stop. Group these eye-catching beauties on the floor or table or use them to as accent pieces. I think our favorite way is as a floral vase. Try some blue or white hydrangeas. *Swoon*.

  1. Rugs

There’s nothing quite like a great blue and white rug. Find the perfect one, then keep the rest of the décor simple and classy. We love a blue and white rug paired with a gold coffee table. Can it get much more gorgeous?

PS – Looking for a gorgeous coffee table to complement that new rug? We can help. This one is a favorite.

  1. Lamps

We love the way a lamp can add a bold pop of color. Try bold blues, classy whites, or blue and white patterns to bring style to your bedside or side table.

MWH Interview On Hanover Avenue!

MWH Interview On Hanover Avenue!

When we were approached by Hanover Avenue to be a part of their designer series, we were totally flattered. To be included in a series among the likes of Lauren Liess, Parker Kennedy Living, Eddie Ross and Dana Gibson...talk about a dream. We also have a total crush on their founder and designer, Anne Tollett. She set out to teach others what really goes into designing a beautiful space – rooms that look like they’ve effortlessly evolved over time – and to provide people with the tools to do it themselves, the result is Hanover Avenue

Heloise got to sit down with Anne at the Hanover Avenue offices in Richmond a few weeks to ago to chat all about design and what went into decorating her DC apartment. Click here to take a look at the entire feature and shop the look!

The Ultimate Bloody Mary Bar!

The Ultimate Bloody Mary Bar!

There's something about colder days that really gets us craving a good Bloody Mary. With that in mind, we went all out to bring you The Ultimate Bloody Mary Bar starring our favorite fixin's and barware. This three story bar cart is the newest addition to our bar cart army and while she is small, she is but mighty, especially wrapped in eucalyptus and florals.

 We like our Bloody Marys to be a meal so for us, the more fixin's the better. Right!? We're talking bacon, cheese, okra, stuffed olives, cheese straws, pickles, hot peppers, celery and old bay dusted shrimp to name a few of our faves. Also, the spicier the better in our book!

New Years Eve Party Guide | Featuring Defined Designs

New Years Eve Party Guide | Featuring Defined Designs

We're so thrilled to have Emma Newell of Defined Designs Blog here sharing her favorite Mintwood Home party-ready products to help ring in 2016!

 

Nothing is more fun than push-pop confetti, however, we do recommend making this an outdoor activity...we speak from experience. We also love Emma's idea to use the quartz rock box for collecting each guests best moment from 2015 and reading them allowed after midnight.

 

We think that every NYE party cocktail should be served in a gold rimmed glass! Coasters are also a must-have when entertaining, scatter them around before guests arrive and hope for the best.

 

 

You already know that anything black and white and gold is a must-have in our book. Serve up a classy charcuterie board and a fruit salad for your guests.
