The White Dish Trend

The monochromatic look is back with Crisp, and pearly white surfaces.  I am referring to the seemingly popular white dishes making their way to kitchen cabinets everywhere.  Plates, bowls, mugs, coffee pots, pitchers… these porcelain made serve-wares are the hottest things right now and with good reason.

Not only are they visually appealing, making your cabinets look clean, neutral and clutter free due to the one color, but they open space to allow your meals to take center stage at the table.  The plain white porcelain is the perfect backdrop for any assortment of colors your food holds.  Pairing them with one or two other colors (be it in the table linens or overall tablescape) for the much needed pop, white dishes scream sophistication and will definitely make your daily "sitting at the table for dinner" more than just that.

Clears too, bring in loads of light through, so if you have smaller than usual cabinets or if you keep your dishes on open shelves, this would work wonders for making your space appear larger than it really is.  Again, the possibilities of mixing & matching are endless which is why I truly love the monochromatic look that can work for all types of design styles (edgy, classic, modern, shabby etc.)

With the main dishes in white, clear or both, one can bring forth several accent pieces and colors that will ultimately make the whole space look amazing and it will always look as if you spent valuable time organizing and tidying up your cabinets since all you have to do is "place them in there” without worries of “where should I put this red plate that does not match with anything?”.

 White and clear dishes require less organization and look great!

If you don’t already follow this trend go ahead and make the switch.  Luckily for all of us porcelain dishes are not expensive plus you are sure to find something in your price range.  In my local 99 cents store I spotted them for $5 a piece and they are amazing quality.  “WOW” was my initial thought.  I am beyond impressed.
