Blue and White

I love a fresh blue and white palette. Its a classic scheme with universal appeal and you’ll often find me using it in my interior design work – in fact I’m just now creating an uber chic take on this color scheme for a new client of mine. I’ve turned to David Duncan for a few select items as he always has the most stylish and fabulous offerings. Happily for me, I found all that I needed here to get my new design off to a most brilliant start!

A five-tier French Directoire style etagere (right) to hold masses of blue and white delft porcelain – I’m using blue and white delft throughout the room, including the pair of very large covered jars that are flanking me in the photo at top – Duncan even has a chandelier composed of Blue and white delft porcelain that is quite tempting.

Sitting amongst the stunning collection I’ve culled from Duncan’s treasures (at top), I’m wearing a dusty pale blue suede biker jacket, pale blue cashmere turtleneck, and blue, gray, black and forest green check wool/cotton pants all by Gucci, black leather “windsor” loafers by Yves Saint Laurent, forest green leather gloves by Sermoneta – my fragrance is “Windsor” by Creed.

David Duncan

I love mixing modern dining tables with antique chairs – the juxtaposition really creates a sophisticated contrast. Here, at the fine David Duncan boutique, I am eyeing a fab American Lucite and glass round dining table. The large blue wool carpet by V’Soske is pretty terrific as well with its grisaille trompe l’oeil garland borders.

I am wearing a grey light weight worsted wool suit by Gucci, (perfect for this time of year), Tom Ford lavender cotton shirt with white contrast collar, lavender and brown silk pocket square, brown leather Hermes belt , with brown suede shoes by Gucci.
