White Dishes

When it comes to collections of items, my favorite is a gathering of white china or dishes.  I love that you can make these groupings look modern or traditional, and that the pieces are easy to obtain.  I have a pigeonhole bookcase that doubles as storage for my dishes -- and it is where I keep all of my white ones, proudly displayed and prettily styled.  In my future woodsy vacation home, I would love to have a collection of more vintage pieces, as opposed to the newer variety.  Here, some inspiration pictures to start your weekend off with something lovely.















Do you prefer the more traditional or modern style of white dishes/china?

love,
maria

*I hope you have a wonderful weekend!  See you back here Monday with a DIY project!*

  1. I think white dishes are so classic. We have navy blue dishes that were given to my fiance who knows how long ago...can't wait to upgrade to something else one day. Now, I'll just have to find a way to talk him into it..haha

  3. so many lovely white dishes! I think I like a mixture of both modern/vintage/traditional pieces. I also like it when they are really white, and not an off white color.

    Great collection of inspiration :)
