Blue and White Decor and I'm Back!

(Cacomma  Interiors)

I missed all of you!  
 I want to thank you for your prayers, emails and checking in on me...

With two parents being sick and a son who was in an accident...its been very hard to blog, but I'm learning to breath in between life's little surprises.. 

Here are a few things I learned the last couple of months...
Thank God for my hubby and good friends that support me no matter what I'm going through....
Love you guys! 

Always try to find the silver lining in every situation....
Find time to take care of yourself. 
That's a hard one! 
When your taking care of everyone else its hard to find time for yourself..

 Most important, you gotta laugh at yourself! 

 Yes, even though things are filled with hardship you gotta laugh at the situation... 

Erma Bombeck had a saying...
(my Mother loved her)

 "Laughter rises out of tragedy, when you need it the most, and rewards you for your courage."

I thought this was a perfect time to get back in the swing of things and join The Pink Pagodas blue and white party...

  Have you noticed we are finally seeing blue and white in the stores?

 Hello Pottery Barn!
Its about time....

It seems like we, in blog-land, have been posting and talking about blue and white decor for so long.... 
Its nice to finally see it out and about.....

Ralph Lauren

Oh Ralph, you've done it again....

So pretty...
Look at the beautiful patina in the wood work. 
I love the color of those doors.

I just took this fabric to my upholster to have a pillow made......its by Lee Jofa...

I can't wait to see it!

Can you guess who designed this room?

 She has a way of weaving her name through out her designs...
Anna Spiro 

Phillip Sides, Traditional Home

What do you think about green and blue together? I do think we will see more of it... 

I just bought these Porcelain Jars for a client...

They are gorgeous!

 Do you like them?

Pastels and White Blog

I thought I would share with you some of the furniture I have been buying for a client..... 

They aren't blue, but the room they're going into is...
I'll show pictures later.

This cabinet was used in our clients living room.

And this chandelier....it's so pretty in person!

Don't forget to check out the Pink Pagoda Blog here...
and thanks for being patient with me!
 I can't wait to talk to you all.....



  1. I was just thinking of you yesterday! So glad to see your back and joining the party. Your images are sensational, as I'm seeing the majority of them for the first time. And that's refreshing! I too think we will be seeing touches of green with blue. Looking forward to seeing how your new items are going to look in your clients home.
    Take care,

  5. WELCOME BACK Julie!! So good to see you here, hope your son is on the mend, I can imagine how terrifying it must have been. Love this post and that Lee Jofa fabric is soooooo beautiful! I cannot wait to see it done. Stay well and your words of wisdom are right on the money.

  6. Oh Julie...I am so sorry to hear of these events in your life. I hope things are getting better for you. Love your new projects of course:)

  7. So wonderful to see you back, and in such gorgeous style. I am so sorry that you've struggled the past few months - my parents were both ill this time last year and it was the most difficult time I've been through in my life so far, so I can only imagine how challenged you've been. Hope you are on the other side now. Sending prayers and hugs. XO

  13. I'm a fan of blue and white, with a little green thrown in. I hope your family is doing better. That's wonderful your friends were able to be there for you. It's such a humbling feeling. I'm glad to see you back!

  14. Julie, So glad you're back and I hope things are much better for you. I have loved blue and white for as long as I can remember and you're right….the store have had "nothing" blue for a long, long time. I have noticed it's coming into some stores like you said and I hope the trend continues. Thanks for the wonderful blue and white inspiration!

  15. Welcome back Julie! Gorgeous images filled with south inspiration. The Lee Jofa fabric is stunning and I need to find that chandelier .. It's exactly what I'm looking for. Pastels and white.. very pretty!

  16. Hi Julie - Great to have you back!! And sharing such lovely and inspiring images! Bring on the blue and white, I say. Take care, L

  17. Hope things are going well. Stay strong!

  18. Julie,
    So glad you're back. And what a great return, blue and white! I love that hutch piece you purchased for your client and the blue and white Lee Joffa fabric will make an amazing pillow.
    Happy New Year.

  19. Welcome back, Julie!! We so missed the beautiful posts from the two of you, and hoping for continued health for your family. Blue and white is such a favorite of ours and your images are gorgeous. Loving the Lee Jofa fabric and can't wait to see the rooms that get the amazing new pieces of furniture!!

  20. It's great to have you back, Julie! I'm so sorry for your rough road lately, thank goodness for friends we can lean on when the going gets tough!

  21. Funny that while we don't know one another, I found myself missing you and wondering how you were doing. You are one of my daily reads in blog land. I sincerely hope a speedy recovery for your son, and that your folks are doing better themselves. Take care of one another, and of course do take time for yourself. As a caregiver, you must be able to take care of your needs ( no matter how small) so that you can be there for those who need you. Be well.....

  22. Glad things are getting to be more "normal" for you, and hope all are well. Those are lovely pictures today.

  23. Praying for you and your family!
    Love all these images you have come up with! That first bedroom...such a great play with patterns! And you are so right that the patina in the woodwork photo is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing!

  24. Friends and family make life worth living....it's great to be able to rely on them when you need them. I'm thinking of you and praying for the best.

  25. Welcome back - you've been missed and we're happy to hear that things are on the mend for you and your family! We love blue and white and we love blue and green so we're happy to see these color combos for spring.
