HURRAY FOR THE RAD, WHITE AND BLUE!


Blue and white is a time-honored classic, add tile to that pairing and it gets even better.....
Portugese company Boca Do Lobo has recently introduced this amazing new cabinet that is a limited edition piece made from an expertly curated ensemble of hand-painted tiles. How's that for a unique piece?  
Not your typical generic cabinet - very cool!  
A real work of art straight from Portugal, traditionally known for their phenomenal legacy in tile design. 

Have an excellent weekend and Happy 4th of July holiday to all of my U.S. readers and Happy Canada Day to my friends north of the border!

Anne,

Love the blue and white tile. Is there anything more beautiful, refreshing or historic? My husband was born in Holland, lived in Portugal, and my mother was born in Spain so I am very famailiar with these beautiful tiles and love them too!

Hi Anne, this cabinet is just gorgeous...
hand painted tiles have a very unique and classic charm - when teamed with blue and white, like here, are truly special :)

Anna,
That is gorgeous. My honeymoon was in Portugal long ago and I shall never forget the gorgeous village of Obidos and all the blue and white tile.
Funny, I painted many murals in blues and whites, they are perfect for both genders. I give blue and white spode plates for wedding gifts.
