Delft Blue

Remember several weeks ago when I returned from Europe and my Friday Four included this Delft Blue wallpaper from our hotel in Amsterdam? Well, even after all this time, I’m still obsessing over this gorgeous, graphic pattern, and I’ve been mentally kicking myself for not picking up a small piece of decor in the traditional Dutch print before heading home to the States.

So ever since we returned home, I’ve been keeping my eyes peeled for anything Delft Blue that I can add to our apartment, whether it’s a decorative bowl, porcelain plate, unique figurine or even a simple piece of tile. (I’d also settle for an entirely tiled room like the one below, of course.)

Fortunately, I’ve been seeing more pieces than I imagined that are—if not exactly the definition of a Delft Blue pattern—definitely inspired by the print and beautiful blue hue. And it’s not just limited to home decor; I’ve even found some amazing skirts, shoes, accessories and more that remind me of this gorgeous pattern (and look really good for spring, too!). Want to add a little Delft Blue to your home or wardrobe? Start by checking out the 12 picks below!

I use a lot of blue in decorating, so these pieces would fit right into my current apartment style—especially that gorgeous lamp and beautiful rug. And as far as my closet goes, I couldn’t think of a chicer shoe than that printed J.Crew pump for spring, and those BB Dakota pants would look great dressed down for a casual Saturday or glammed up for date night.

Do you have a favorite print you’re obsessing over right now?

  1. I’m crazy about stripes – especially nautical blue or mattress ticking stripes – any colour! I love the beautiful examples you’ve shown in the post. You’d think the blue tiled room would be too much blue tile, but it’s stunning.
