THE VINTAGE-STYLE PLATE
Dress your table with chic crockery that fuses a vintage botanical pattern and a cool indigo palette, says shopping editor of Elle Decoration magazine Emma Kay
Elegant tableware doesn’t have to break the bank, and this retro-inspired dinner plate will affordably update your scheme for the coming winter months – whether you’re refreshing your existing collection or starting from scratch. It’s from a simple series of blackberry-print earthenware created by an expert team in Stoke-on-Trent, a UK town famed for its ceramic craftsmanship. Try blending this usable pattern with plain indigo or cream designs to create a layered look on your dining table. And with the matching milk jug, teacups and saucers, there’s no reason your coffee mornings can’t be as stylish as your dinner parties.
