It’s almost the end of the week! Hurrah! Loverboy has been out of town this week so I’m excited to get to see him tonight and maybe eat some seafood in celebration of his return. 😉 Today’s interior inspiration is brought to you by pottery! Lately I have been having a major crush on ceramics in the home. There’s just something about bowls, vases, and other vessels that look (and/or actually are) handmade. They add a unique touch to any room, and often help to create a cozier space by adding some extra warmth and texture.
Collections on Open Shelving
I especially love the look of open shelving with a collection of pottery. This is a great way to show off a collection of mugs, vases, or bowls. As long as you keep it in generally the same color palette, you’ll have a stylish grouping, rather than a cluttered shelf (which is always a good thing, amiright?!). Check these spaces out!
Small Groupings as Statements
Another look I’ve really been enjoying is a few larger vessels grouped together on a mantel, shelf, or even on the floor. Filled with greenery or not, this makes a lovely statement in a smaller area or if you don’t have quite a large enough collection to display on multiple shelves.
In the Kitchen
Lastly, ceramics are always a good idea in the kitchen, as shown below. I love the mix of warm and cool tones in this styling, and the wood against the pottery against the linens makes for quite the cozy setting.
So have some fun decorating your home with pottery! Add a ceramic vase to your mantel, or a few pretty mugs or bowls to your kitchen shelves. Your home will thank you for it. 🙂 Thrift stores are a wonderful place to find lots of unique pottery on the cheap, but if you’re looking for something a little less, well, used, I’ve got you covered with some of my favorites below. Thanks for reading, and make sure to comment if you have any favorite places to find pottery!
