2. Use blue and white ceramics to store practical items. Fill a ginger jar with tea bags, a vase with wooden spoons or a creamer with birthday candles. Those blue and white pieces are beautiful, so why not make them useful, too?
3. Bring a blue and white garden stool into the kitchen. Use it as for holding a stack of cookbooks or for a friend to perch on while you cook — either way, a garden stool can be a useful and stylish addition to the kitchen.
4. Fill a blue and white container with tall cut branches. Simply using your blue and white porcelain containers can make you see them in a new light. Remove the lid from a jar and fill it with seasonal cut branches —the branches will bring your cluster of blue and white china pieces to life.
9. Go big with one oversize piece in blue and white. Playing with scale is a quick way to make a focal point or draw attention to a forgotten corner. Invest in one extra-large vase to place on the floor near a furniture grouping for the most impact.
