I always thought that at some magical point in my life I’d be living in a gorgeous house, filled up with beautiful and super-stylish homewares … perhaps an ideal best described as having everything ‘just so’. In such a world, everything would have a place and a purpose … and more importantly, everything would match.
I’ve grown up a bit since first having those thoughts, but something that I’m still yet to find the answer to is, ‘At what age should I buy matching crockery and cutlery?’ … because to be honest I’m still living in a mismatched world, and I LOVE it!
Now when I think about it I just can’t imagine investing what can be a significant amount of money into the purchase of a complete set of matching plates, bowls, cups and saucers …
I like filling the house with odd pieces full of individuality and a sense of fun. It’s even better finding secondhand goodies which fill the house with their own unique history. All of that sounds much more special to me than getting all concerned about getting everything looking just the same as everything else … don’t you think?
