Today, I would like to welcome fellow North Carolinian, Laura Casey to The Collected Room to share her collection with us!
I am thrilled to be a guest blogger today for Kathryn. We met at High Point last year, and I was so excited to see her new beautiful book The Collected Tabletop as one of my favorite things to collect is different china patterns.
The Herend Chinese Bouquet in Raspberry is my formal china which I love and think is beautiful. I have collected some different patterns of antique desert plates which are also wonderful to mix in. When visiting antique stores and outdoor markets I love to see what vintage pieces are for sale.
Having some white china to mix in is really helpful and always looks pretty on a table, my favorite to mix in is the golden edge pattern.
The Mottahedeh Tobacco Leaf is also one of my favorite patterns which mixes so well with a variety of colors.
My sweet father was in Portugal a few years ago and picked out some serving pieces in this pretty pattern Viana by Vista Allegre.
I usually mix the serving pieces with blue and white china for everyday.
A few years ago I started the Tiffany Garland pattern for Christmas.
I think it’s nice to incorporate traditional reds, greens and golds at the holidays.
Laura, Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful china with us. And I think everyone would agree you do have a sweet father!
