It may be autumn but there’s nothing stopping us from dressing our homes in pretty pastels. I have recently been introduced to the handpainted and ethical tableware by duckydora. There ceramics with matching linens are so pretty with their pastel colour tones and beautiful provenance. Each one is slightly different which is why I believe they work well teamed up with vintage.
I have chosen Amalfi ceramics as they go so well with my home. On first glance, you would think that a pastel shade would definitely not go with my pops of bright colour but the yellow rim to these plates does just that – pops out at you.
I love yellow and use my Midwinter tureen bowl all the time. The yellow vase has a delicate handkerchief edge and looks fab with simple hand picked flowers.
The salt and pepper pots are Hornsea.
I love how they also stand out against white china (mine are just basic white plates from IKEA), yet also team up with my vintage Poole Pottery.
Their range can also be mix and matched as each design uses similar tones.
As they are earthenware the feel is slightly textured, with gently rims around the edges of the bowl and on the plates.
The mats and coasters are vintage and feature soldiers riding on horses. I recently bought them from a car boot sale as there was just something about them that I loved. I reckon they also go well with the ceramics. You could add a vintage linen embroidered table cloth to make the look slightly prettier which I would do outside (in the spring of course!)
Now all I need to do is make my soup and invite my friends round to lunch.
