You know I will use almost any excuse to use something with a 'Blue & White' decor item, or space... Here - I recently came across these gorgeous vintage House Beautiful [images] magazine covers and interior spreads on specifically - Blue & White - decorated rooms. [For me] It's always pleasing & amazing to see how simple, good taste, combined with careful consideration when using the correct foundations of design can stand the test of time... here are some fantastic examples, where I'm sure you'd agree....

  1. Hi Sarah, they are fabulous! I worked on H&G a few years ago and in the lead up to the 60th birthday we got out these big green books which each contained a year of H&G issues. It was amazing seeing the rooms and decor, some of which could have been decorated yesterday, others which were so cringe-worthy we would laugh. Thanks for sharing these. Janette x
