Blue + White

It doesn’t get any more classic than blue and white, a great color combination to usher in Spring, and Summer too. Clean and crisp, fresh and bright, timeless and elegant. A wish list visit is this shop, Blue and White, run by Amy Katho, a mainstay in Tokyo for over 35 years. My colleague has visited and testified to it being quite an essential place to shop while living in Japan.

A champion of Japanese folk art textiles much closer to home is Sri, a textile gallery in Brooklyn.
You can peruse their shop online, too.
