So what was it about Blue and White that got me excited? A quick google search bought up the following: 

American designer, Mark D Sikes, has a soft spot for the timeless country combo of blue and white. Some of his favorite accents are blue-and-white ceramics—from porcelain jars on the mantel to the garden stools as a side table. "You can use ceramics sparingly as an accent, but I like a lot of pieces displayed together as a collection. It gives instant colour and detail that's intricate and alluring," he says.

Here's an extract from interior designer Phoebe Howard: "What is it about this Blue and White palette that gives it such widespread appeal and inspires such devotion?  To start, there's the fact that blue is the world's favorite color. Found all around us in nature, it knows no limits when it comes to a particular fashion or style, time period or geography. As for white, it shows blue off in its truest form, without distraction or competition. And though it delivers plenty of contrast, the combination is less stark than black and white. It's easy on the eyes. White sets blue up for success, which sets you and your decorating scheme up for success too."

So it seems that the pairing of Blue and White brings out the best in any room, whether it's the kitchen, living room or bedroom - it is a classic for a reason.
