The first type of pottery that caught my eye as a child was my grandmother’s collection of ginger jars. Each one had its unique pattern. Next I favored Red Wing pottery. Then I joined the white ironstone craze that Martha Stewart instigated. Today, I enjoy decorating with pottery that’s a little more rustic. But I still love most styles.
The top shelf of this pantry displays blue and white ginger jars which I still find pretty but are perhaps a bit more delicate than my current decorating style.
Rustic pottery like these two-toned bean pots are more in line with the earthy and organic style I’m craving today. Perhaps the down-to-earth attraction stems from all the craziness in today’s world. I need something calming and anything that looks handmade tugs at my heart strings.
Gorgeous green pottery below fills a display hutch in a showcase home. If you enjoy decorating with pottery, a hutch or some type of open shelving is a must.
My friend Danielle at Finding Silver Pennies has a gorgeous Welsh hutch filled with beautiful white ironstone. I just so happened to with her in Chicago when she was on the phone trying to purchase it. I’m featuring her kitchen this Thursday – you don’t want to miss it!
Here’s an art deco piece of pottery. It’s beauty stands on its own.
Pottery doesn’t have to be old to be pretty. Here, a large urn stands next to a gray hutch filled with new white and gray pieces.
Blue and white is always a classic look when decorating with pottery and you’ll never go wrong with this color combination.
