Location Decor: Worldstock Fair Trade Anniversary

What's blue, white, and global? The latest decor trend, it turns out. The trend takes its inspiration from 7th-century Dutch Delftware, Chinese porcelain, and the iconic powder blue of the famous Wedgewood pottery company. The look is clean, classic, and striking; when you limit your color palette, you can easily mix patterns and styles.


So far, we've traveled to Paris, the Southwestern U.S, and Morocco on our tour of location-inspired decor. But for a look with so many cultural influences, it seems fitting to curate a collection of handmade pieces from around the world as part of our celebration of Worldstock Fair Trade's 12th anniversary. From a Japanese tea set handcrafted in China to blue ikat throw pillows made in India, we've got a beautiful collection of pieces that fit the bill -- all fairly traded and shipped carbon neutral.

A blue-and-white bedroom would be lovely, crisp, and clean. I would put those ikat pillows on a white wicker rocking chair.

I've always loved blue and white. My mom's china is Blue Danube, and we always had tons of blue and navy decor growing up.
