Blue in the Breakfast Room

I’ve gone on and on lately about how I’m smitten with lime green right now, and it’s true, but something about this brilliant blue color struck a chord with me and made it’s way onto my breakfast table.  It’s a fun pop of color in that area.

When I was at Home Goods over the weekend doing the happy dance over my new mirror, I also found this blue jar that’s a twin to my green one.  For $9.99, I couldn’t resist. And it goes so nicely with the reversible blue and white Z Gallerie runner.
I get asked a lot where we got our table and benches, and they are from Pottery Barn, the Benchwright collection.  Sometimes I like to put our upholstered dining room chairs with the table because they are more comfortable on your back.  But then, we don’t really have a good place for the benches, so they normally stick with the table.
Seems I’m not the only one who likes the Z Gallerie runner.

    I have been adding a lot of blue to my home too. Mostly light porcelain blue though. Did you order a second crate and barrel rug for under your table? I'm thinking of ordering one…

    Oh, I do like that runner! Such a pretty color. My whole life I wasn't very drawn to cobalt and now I LOVE it. So striking and vibrant.

    Beautiful! Somehow, I'm not surprised that you both have the same runner. 😉

    What color are your walls and where did you find those curtains?

      All the paint in my house can be found in the "HOME" tab on my blog and I had those curtains made from fabric I found at High Fashion Home.
