On our tables, the use of colour and texture gives any meal that special touch. From everyday classic combinations to modern statement pieces, dinnerware choice is all part of the culinary journey. Here is our list of the hottest trends for dinnerware this summer:
Metalics are big this season with gold, bronze and copper appearing in accessories around the home from candles, pots and stemware. Bring a little shine to the table with gold-rimmed glasses or napkin rings for a special occasion.
Mismatched vintage china is still on trend. To give a mismatched set uniformity, opt for similar colours and hues to tie the look together, rather than trying to exactly match pieces to each other. This adds more interest to a table setting.
Hues of Blue – Blue is big this year with shades from cobalt to soft powder blue. Perfect for summer, blue can add colour and class to the table or be bright and unexpected in a casual setting.
Classic white – You can’t go past white for lifelong enjoyment and classic stying. If investing in a special set of dinnerware, buy the best that you can afford in a classic and timeless design. Then use accessories such napery, flowers and glassware to modernise your table setting depending on what’s on trend for years to come.
