A tribute to a great designer in Blu e Bianco

I was sad to hear of the passing of iconic designer 
Oscar de la Renta.
Most people thing of him as a fashion designer,

But he was a man of many talents and the fashion and 
interior design world were greatly changed by his contributions.

One thing that showed up in both his interior design and fashion 
 designs was his love for the use of blue and white combinations. 

His years in the Dominican Republic certainly offered him 
many wonderful shades of blue for inspiration. 

This is a design for Century furniture.

In my travels around the design blog world I have come to 
understand and appreciate the great love for blue and white.

So in memory of Oscar, I want to share with you some of 
my favorite blu e bianco rooms! 

I bet this is a bedroom on a beautiful island!

Perfect spot for entertaining!

Lovely and comfortable.

This powder room appears bigger with the use of 
the large scale wallpaper and the washed blue vanity.

Doesn't this collection of plates POP on the green wall.

What a focal point this grouping of blue and white
makes on this entrance table.

A classic blue and white check warms up this keeping room.

If a little is good, more is better. Love the red sea coral!

Did you ever think of blue and white for Christmas?

Why not? 

In tribute to Oscar de la Renta, here are the words of 
Sarah Jessica Parker
