Classic Blue and White

Eileen Kennedy Design

This is such a pretty example of a blue and white room - traditional but modern. Chinoiserie touches include the pair of Chinese Chippendale chairs, the blue and white Chinese garden stool, and an orchid in a blue and white Chinese bowl. I love that they kept the grandfather clock. The backgammon table is by Oomph.

Here are some ideas inspired by this room.

Blue and White Chinese Garden Stool with Bird Motif

Oomph Backgammon Table

The table is wonderful, but a hefty $4,650. I would love a gaming table that could be used for any board games and jigsaw puzzles and thought I would check out the options.

This beautiful vintage dining table is the perfect size - it is grey grasscloth with a green glass top.

I like this option a lot - brass and marble.

Leather Backgammon Set


  1. Such a pretty room! I love everything about it!

  2. The grandfather clock adds something special. Without it, the room would be just another pretty face. I love the Gray Malin backgammon set. I'm a big fan of his photographs.

  3. Just found a Serena & Lily outlet store near me! They had several tables that would work as game tables. Folks should check to see if there is a store near them, as they have significant savings.

    1. I believe there are just a couple in California and no other states.
