I often find time on the weekend for a little kitchen tidy up and this weekend will be no different, especially as I’m planning on baking tomorrow. As I thought about making my tablewares more accessible, I happened upon these candy coloured units stocked with an array of cheerful tableware from Rice. I started to think about displaying tableware and ways to make it look stylish yet natural, relaxed instead of untidy. My advice would be to avoid stacking everything in perfectly neat pyramids as this can create a stuffy, somewhat forced look. Sure, you’ll want one or two pyramid stacks but I’d recommend creating them with items that coordinate particularly well, as these brief occurrences of perfect stacking and neatness will be what grounds the collection visually. Then, amongst these pyramid stacks, mix in other pieces of all shapes, sizes and colours to break up the linearity of the tableware. By keeping a few items in neat stacks and the other pieces stored more ‘loosely’, your collection will look effortlessly stylish and laid back. How do you store your tableware? Do you keep it on open shelves like this? Enjoy your weekend, friends!
