Growing up, my mother, grandmother, aunt — everyone in the family had matching dinnerware in their kitchen cupboards. Everything was super matchy-matchy and super boring-boring.

I’ll admit — I’ve regrettably fallen into the same ho-hum pattern. Those all-in-one dinnerware boxes are so darn convenient! But, I’ve been on a mission to break my family’s tradition of boring. It’s time.

I’m determined to buy all sorts of vintage plates to add variety in the kitchen. The varying colors are stunning, the looks are so different from anything in today’s mass market and let’s face it — they’re just plain pretty. The juxtaposition of styles takes me to a happy place.

This display of plates found at houzz.com is the exact look I’m shooting for. Come on, even if you’re not an antique/vintage-style lover, you have to admit that there’s something appealing about this colorful presentation.

  7. L’obiettivo, come ha sottolineato Bertelli, 猫 di “disputare la finale della Louis Vuitton cup con i neozelandesi”. “Lo scafo con il quale abbiamo disputato la semifinale della Louis Vuitton cup a Valencia nel 2007, quando battemmo Oracle, 猫 quello che ricordo di pi霉 ha confessato il patron di Luna Rossa . Quella barca, sul piano tecnologico, ha ottenuto molto: contro Oracle riuscimmo a regatare al massimo delle nostre possibilit脿 a 15 nodi”.
