Good morning lovelies! Today’s tableware trends post has lots of Med-inspired content in it – and that’s because blue & white patterning is huge in tableware at the moment. Which is good for me, since it’s a look i love. Blue & white really is a fabulous colour combo – tableware-wise it was huge in the Nineties and i’m loving that it’s come back. I’ve also pinpointed some other looks i like for tableware – namely pastels, other blue hues, spatters, dark colours and golds and coppers – it’s a long post – hope you enjoy…
Hues of green and blue remain popular and i love the addition of spattered pieces and the hint of pink too – a great look when you have a collection of mismatched pieces.
Muted greys remain popular which is no surprise since grey is the neutral practically nobody doesn’t like. For similar looks to this, Wonki Ware is a great bet.
I am absolutely mad about these gorgeous pastel ceramics – the patterning combined with the colour choices makes for a really compelling collection. I’d love to own every single piece! They’re by Dutch designer and ceramics creator Lenneke Wispelwey – aren’t they beautiful?!
This is the blue & white look i was talking about up above – clssic, cool and a lovely foil for all food
These plates were found at Woolworths – i love the idea of a mixed bunch to make up a set
We’re so lucky in South Africa that we have so many talented ceramicists making beautiful tableware.These gorgeous spatter spoons are handmade by Marietjie Beeslaar or Skermunkel. She’s both a jeweller and a ceramicist and i highly recommend a visit to her Palmer Road studio in Muizenberg to see her beautiful products.
This Portuguese style earthenware is from Weylandts
Black is big news for tableware and i’m not surprised – it’s so elegant and so luxe! Add some gold or crystal and you have a really polished table setting!
This black Antique Plastique cutlery is so cool, don’t you think?
I’m also loving gold and copper as accents for the table – this beautiful set is from @home
And this is another option from Antique Plastique – you can buy it at Yuppiechef and it’s reall well priced – R130 for a 24-piece set
