Ain’t No Blue and White Party Like a Mamma Sally Party.

Unless you’ve been living under an ugly gray scaly rock this past year, you know that blue and white, as a throw-back color combo focal point, is the most important element of interior style these days.

Ticking, ikat, traditional china patterns, modernly-incorporated geometric fabrics… they’re being whored out like a bottle of Southern  Comfort at a high school party.

AND speaking of the South, we must give credit where credit is due. No one can do blue and white like a classy Southern woman, and Mamma Sally has been classin’ it up blue and white style since the 70’s.

PS – do yourself a favor and reward your mouth with the most delicious apperitivo ever. Whole Wheat Cracker + Rolling Stone Chevre (Goats Cheese) + fresh sliced figs + fresh basil leaf. Consume. Repeat. You’ll thank me for it.
Even my little boop boop Tenzing Norgai knows whats up.

And now for a little design montage…

    Each new age brought the criminal element forward with it.
    As the culture of internet slang grew, it took on new
    origins from pop culture or video games and television. To report
