Ok, so the English have some of the best china and porcelain. Think ironstone and transferware (including Flow Blue).
The good news is that these English plates, mugs, bowls, and soup tureens look great in French-inspired rooms!
Pretty, brown transferware….
These are a collection of sugar pots that are actually French…
The all-white look can be stunning when grouped together…
One of the most well-known types of French porcelain is Limoges…..
While many people love Limoges and it is collectible, it may not always fit in with the French country look. To me, it seems to fit in very well with Shabby Chic or maybe a dressier, more formal French style.
These blue and white pieces are pretty…
One type of French pottery that’s very collectible is the confit pot….
Now, where do we put all these beautiful pieces?
How about in an antique French china cabinet…..
Or maybe a painted cabinet like this….
I love this one….
love this one too….
This china cabinet was part of my Craigslist dining table set. I painted it with chalk paint and added fabric panels to the back to give it some color….
I left the top of the lower cabinet part unpainted. I just touched up the stain to make it darker. Also, I often paint right over the hardware, like I did on the handles and hinges on this piece. I wanted them to blend in rather than stand out….
See you tomorrow!
