When entering in a new season, we all wish to renew our tableware. We look at our old dishes and glasses and we compare them with those glam table settings pictures seen on décor magazines, or on Instagram and Pinterest. Looking more carefully, you may not need a big budget to restyle your tableware. Why? Have you ever tried to combine different styles and materials together?
We have assembled for you, possible combinations to inspire your table décor. Some ideas came directly from our customers. We have also selected three “Jolly” items that will work out your dinner table in any season. Consider them as the Little Black Dress in your closet that fits for every occasion.
Discover the potential of your tableware
You probably have many different types of tableware: porcelain, glass, ceramic, wood. Each set is different, but it might work so perfectly together if you just break the “matching rule” that is in your mind. Try to create a less ordinary place setting for your next gathering, mixing together old style and modern style dishes, wood and porcelain, glasses of assorted colors and sizes. Even textile, tablecloth and napkins, can have different patterns and colors, as long as they are made of the same fabric (i.e. linen, cotton, …). Kitchen towels are on trend now: use them as placemats for a casual twist.
Some tricks to restyle your tableware for a Fall/Winter look.
These pieces of tableware can be considered as “Jolly items” for every season and occasion:
- Slates (rectangular or oval; black or red);
- Wood dinner plates;
- Tin chargers or tray.
For a warm autumn mood, match wood with honey colors and black slate.
For a minimalist mood, “cold” elements such as glass, tin and grey colors, will cozy up your dinner table.
And here are some styling ideas directly from our Customers.
If you are confident enough 😜, you can also try a somersault, combining together resin, ceramic and glass as Rossella (vanigliacooking blog) did in this beautiful style and shot.
