Mismatch your perfect match

I remember how I, aged 11 or 12, was helping my mother setting and decorating the table for the new years dinner she was about to host. I had this idea in my head, but to my great despair, I was informed we didn't have enough plates of the one kind. I was devastated and cried "but the others doesn't match!".

This was the case, things always had to match, for many years. It was only recently that I figured out that they actually don't. And that there are a bunch of benefits of not having all your glasses, plates, spoons or even your sheets, in the same style. In my very personal own opinion, I think it looks much more relaxed and inviting, to mix things up a bit. It also welcomes you to live out your personal style and imagination. Also, if one glass breaks, you don't have to worry too much about finding one of the same style.

Below you'll find a simple set up for two, with stricter patterns mixed with green and floral warmth. The vase doesn't match w-h-a-t s-o e-v-e-r, but I think it just adds a bit of fun. The deep plates are so darling, with their bold, green roses and the linnen napkins are vintage, embroidered by hand. 

Yours truly,
