1. White is a chic basic
When in doubt : go white. If you have to buy one colour, pick white. This entire blog post is a list of the many reasons why white is the colour to go. Even if you like more colourful pieces, you always need a white foundation to build your dish wear collection on.
2. Mix and match always match
The great thing about white is that it doesn’t matter if items do not come from the same set, they will always match. Even if the shades of white are not quite the same, it will not clash. This allows you to build your collection slowly with only items you love/need.
3. Have fun with the designs
White does not have to be boring. You can get plates with designs and different shapes. That way, your tables will never seem dull and yet super creative. Get minimalist, rustic, artsy shapes, mix and match, have fun with it. Try different styles without wasting your money. White goes with everything, none of your previous items will become obsolete in the process.
4. Curate your dish set
Shopping only for white items means that you have time and many opportunities to curate your collection. You do not need to buy entire sets if you only like the bowls or plates etc. Shop what you love, get what you need.
