KELLY WEARSTLER TABLETOP

kw plates

Maybe it’s the fact that I’m cooking more and more and therefore like to have a pretty tabletop, or that I’m moving into a new house where I’ll actually have plenty of plate storage, but I can’t seem to get my mind off of all things tabletop: plates, flatware (just got these for such a steal!), glasses, and everything else. I’ve always been someone who enjoys a good tablescape (this book has some great ideas and inspiration) but lately it’s becoming something I enjoy more and more. One tabletop line in particular that I’ve got my eye on is Kelly Wearstler’s. While her fine china is beautiful, it’s her casual china that really gets me. I just adore the graphic patterns – especially the dots! True to the designer’s style, each pattern is meant to be mixed and matched with one another. That makes it even better, doesn’t it? She’s so good about using black-and-white color combinations (like this one) which pair perfectly with almost everything. My favorite combination is this pink plate paired with the dot salad plate.  It’s certainly bold, but I think it’s eye-catching – which is exactly what a good tablescape should be.

Take a peek through the rest of her casual china collection here. Let me know your favorites.
