The Art of Display

So, I'm thinking this shelf vignette is pure perfection. Simple, yes, even slightly messy, but perfect. Also, see below my current obsession. I won't allow myself to purchase though. I'm fickle and can never commit to patterned china. Maybe one day. Do you like? Happy mid week lovers! xo

I have no less than 7 sets of dinner plates and one full set of china. Yet I have my eye on two sets from Ralph Lauren and one from Kate Spade. It is a sickness......

But I am trying hard to perfect the imperfect. The quirk factor is what most ppl are missing and I LOVE it.

Thanks Nicki!! xo

I'm so glad to hear that you have one illness that I do not Courtney! Does this mean that an affliction is upon me though?? At this point I have a healthy collection of simple modern white china. That's it. :/ 7 sets?!?

I think I have the same illness. My everyday white royal copenhagen has been used nearly every day but I am craving a color....maybe black heath ceramic plates.
love that china.

When you have cute dishes like that messy does not seem to look too bad! If I had those dishes I would not mind open kitchen cabinets at all. Plus it would save space! Cute stuff!

Shelf is styled perfectly. I just purged a bunch of my dish sets am now down to plain white plus my china. Feeling the need to get rid of :) Thanks for the inspiration photo my dear!

Spot on! I heart it all :)

I am a little OCD, but those shelves are gorgeous. I too am quite simple and have plain white, classic plates that I love. Can't help it! Hope you had a great day!

I love it but wouldn't want to clean it! Crystal only looks great when it sparkles! Unfortunately I'm not a domestic godess!

Absolutely gorgeous! Love this collection. :)

My china belonged to my great-grandmother, which makes it extra special...but it's covered with pink flowers!! Normally I would have wanted something solid, but hey, I take what I can get! :)

Karena said...

Erica, I love patterned china, have used the same set everyday for years and then have white with gold rim for "special" occasions!

Ran into someone the other day who had 70 yes 70 sets of dinnerware, I don't even know where I would store these!

I will have a new giveaway posted this weekend!

Erica, it was so great hanging out with you the other night! Now about your fickleness...I'm a bit like that too, when it comes to china. I have about 6 different styles, and I love them all!

Erica said...

Thanks for all the lovely comments. I'm thinking that one or even two sets wouldn't be a bad thing.... After all I have two new glass cases to fill. If 6 or 7 sets is the norm perhaps I'd better get shopping. :)

Wow Karena! Your friend- 70 sets?!

annie said...

It's gorgeous! Is that Juliska? The display has just enough organization to make it interesting without being chaotic. I love the black.

I love the look of cluttered chic. Fabulous!

christine {bijouandboheme} said...

Gah...ADORE that styling on the shelves and think you NEED that china pattern- so so pretty!

madilla said...

Oh, yes! To mix them with old books, great inspiration!

I have never had more than 2 sets of china but I think it's a great collection. Might have to start looking around for some more.
