My husband really likes maps and all things that have to do with cities. I kinds of do, too. So, maybe my love of all things dinnerware will become slightly less annoying to him if I buy dinnerware with maps…? It’s not the best plan, but at least he’ll probably shrug this sort of thing off in lieu of giving me the stink-eye for buying yet another plate.

I won’t often blog about textiles, but these Blueprint Textiles (napkins and tablecloths) by Marianne Vanooij are very cool, especially since I am so drawn to the shape and form of tableware. It makes you appreciate the subtle details that go into product design.
I love finding out about new home collections. Thank you, Google Alerts. HA!
Speaking of which, I was alerted to a new home collection from fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg (a fashionista, I am not! So I don’t know too much about her), but I do really like a few of her dinnerware offerings.
I’m not head-over-heels for the entire collection, but these are the stand-out items (for me, anyway).
Above, left and middle: This is the Miro Flowers collection. To be perfectly honest, I’m not fussy on a lot of the shapes of the dinnerware, but I do enjoy the pattern. These are my two favourites in this pattern. I could leave the rest behind. I’m not a fan of buying an entire set of one pattern anyway (unless of course, it’s a basic white).
Above, right: I love this Sun Stripe pattern. This is actually the charger. Wouldn’t a white plate look amazing on top of this? I think so. You can also get a dining plate and coasters in this pattern. The shape of the dining plate just isn’t appealing to me though.
Any thoughts on this collection?
