Blue and White Jars

July 21, 2014
If you read design magazines or browse Pinterest from time to time, I'm sure you've noticed that blue and white ginger jars are crazy popular right now.  It's probably because these beauties play nicely with any color you pair them with, so they can fit in just about any room.  

I'm loving all the blue and white in this room!  

What a perfect combo!  Ginger jars, lots of white flowers and a rustic table.

Ginger jars also make lovely subjects in art.  This beauty is by Anne Harwell of annechovie on Etsy.  I'm swooning right now.  All her artwork is gorgeous!

Ginger jars were originally created in China thousands of years ago to hold spices.  They have been popular in decorating for years and years, so they clearly are not a trend that is going to fall out of fashion anytime soon. 

If you have decided you want to start your collection of these gorgeous blue and white beauties, you may get a little sticker shock when you see how much they can run you (typically over $100 each depending on size)!  If you're into saving your money while also having a beautiful home (like me!), then go hit the thrift stores instead!  Like I said earlier, ginger jars have been around for years and years, and you're likely to come across some pretty blue and white pieces if you regularly troll the thrift stores.  All of mine have been found at thrift shops, and I haven't spent more than $10 on any of them.

  1. My parents have a bunch of these lying around from when we lived in Korea. I may have to start stealing items from them! We have a lot of Asian-inspired pieces.
