China collections

I love pretty china....

This is from Ralph Lauren's Mandarin Blue collection. Above his Red Pagoda pattern! I have a crush!

And Martha Stewart's willow basket is so inviting for a picnic...and the casual plates/cups/bowls above mix and match!

Mikasa's daylight collection is so pretty, the glasses are from Villeroy & Boch's My Garden collection, Jasper Conran for Wedgewood - Chinoiserie and Vera Wang's Ikat pattern. Aren't they so right for spring?

Lenox is an old staple with an endless assortment, I like Gilded Tapestry and the Chirp collection. And the poppy tea pot is so lovely: By Vista Allegre. Kate Spade's Gwinett Lane Creme, it's so fresh!

More by Kate Spade: Collingwood Drive pattern. Love the hot pink!

A bit of the 50's touch, made modern by Dansk' Arabesque Blue, Mikasa's Circle Chic , Roseanne's dinnerware Red Dot and Kate Spade's St.Kitt's Exeter Road.

This is Wedgewood's Renaissance collection, a classic pattern, fit for a queen!

All found at Macy's! The possibilities are endless and I just picked a few colourful examples, I also love to look at Anthropologie for fun and hip plates and cups, I like to mix my china and play with patterns!

These are some of the ones I like at the current selection at the stores and you might remember probably that the flowery cup above is my favorite, every morning coffee in it!!!
And I love the bohemian feel of that seafaring platter! Called fittingly Bateau!
It lets me dream of summertime and sailing and lobster....and my feet in the water!

Does your china lets you dream?

  1. oh the RL! how beautiful! and i love the playful red dots on the KS teapot. My china (all 2 place settings from my wedding :) ) is timeless, not so much playful: small gold leaves all the way around the edges. I love looking at china on craigslist--if you know your brands then you can get a steal!

  2. I love your coffee cup; it's so very happy to look at!

  3. I have gone through this blog. I found it very interesting and helpful. Nowadays I am working from my home and studying in a reputed college.
    So this blog really doing great for me.

    work and study

  4. Colorful collections added to one's home do take us away - I adore that bateau platter. How wonderful for a little boy's room to inspire and design a room or an interior space based on that plate. I love the sweet border.

  5. Wow that is a wonderful collection of china! I love the pagoda design! Sometimes I'm afraid of a design being too 'busy'. Do you have any china pieces?

  6. Olá amiga! Que coleção maravilhosa!!!!Adorei.
    Se puder vem me visitar também

  7. WHERE was all this stuff last year when we got married??! LOL. I love china, too. We got some everyday basics to start, and now I look forward to adding to my collection. Thanks for the ideas!

    Have a fabulous day, and if you haven't had a chance yet, pop on by and check out my Catherine Deneuve giveaway! XO!

  8. Love them all, especially the Arabesque Blue!
