Have you ever spent a good bit of effort on setting a special table, only to realize it didn’t really go with the decor in the room? I used to avoid certain color palettes because the colors that I had in the background wouldn’t sit well with the colors on the table. But I’ve really been “feeling blue” for an upcoming tablescape and decided the quickest way to merge it with my decor was to style a blue vignette on the sideboard.
Now, admittedly, this won’t work for every room if your wall colors are strong contrasting hues. But most of my wall paints are pale colors that I consider nearly neutral. So I put away my usual pinks and greens and focused the vignette around these wonderful blue goblets. (If you’d like to see what I had on the sideboard before, you can visit Styling A Sideboard With Decorative Boxes.)

The tablescape has a rustic French feel, so I kept the sideboard in the same vein. The statuesque candle holders are silver toned with chunky white pillars topping them.
A tall slim repousse silver vase has a fluted lip that looks lovely spilling forth lavender blooms.
Much like on the table, I like to mix rustic country elements with heirloom silver pieces. The cotton tea towel has a herringbone weave and is accented with French blue striping.
The little French milk bottle was a recent find and complements the mood in the room.
One of the more formal pieces, this silver wine caddy was picked up at a street market in Villefranche sur Mer, in the South of France.
A white tea towel picks up the French blue accent with a decorative striping.
In the background is another vintage favorite, a silver wine bucket with repousse trim.
For a look at the tablescape that inspired this vignette, visit Country French Blue and White Tablescape, where you might notice the sideboard in the background working perfectly with the table decor. What else is on my table? Here’s a teaser… it includes blue mason jars, used in a unique way. Stay tuned…
