Simple White or Colourful Crockery: What’s Your Choice?

simple white

What’s your preference between simple white or colourful crockery? Do you like an eclectic mix of plates, cups and bowls, or lots of colour and pattern?

For me, I love white crockery – it’s so clean and simple, plus it matches any colour scheme. I must admit I like everything in one colour, with just the occasional splash of colour provided by accessories. How about you?

We de-cluttered our kitchen cupboards recently and got rid of any crockery, glassware, pots, pans and tools that we weren’t using on a regular basis. For some reason, mugs and glasses seem to be the two things that we had previously not purged properly. Also, we are both what we’d call gadget fiends – that has definitely been reigned in recently!

We did keep a couple of antique cups, saucers and side plates, and one serving dish, which are beautifully decorated (but also predominantly white,😊 keeping with the theme). But apart from that, everything is white.

There will always be something extra we need to keep, of course: a few items of Christmas crockery, for example. But generally, we feel we have just enough kitchen paraphernalia for our daily lives. We can entertain friends or family without running out of plates, but the cupboards aren’t stuffed with mountains of things that never see the light of day.

Do you like lots of choice in your own kitchen? Or do you like everything to match? Perhaps you like decorating for the seasons with different colours? Let me know in the comments.
