It's time for a jail break.It's time for the vintage china dishes,从我们的瓷器柜中取出的银质餐具和旧玻璃器皿,where they have been held in solitary confinement far too long,and finally take their rightful place on our tables.

当你把盘子和新桌布或餐巾配对时会发生什么?(玛丽·卡罗尔·加里蒂/TNS)

在我的书里,two of the best things in life are antiques and dishes.所以你可以想象我对过去的餐具有多疯狂。Old silverware,盘子,酒杯和托盘不仅有永恒的经典造型,他们有一个故事要讲。They take a table from generic to personal,给你一个不仅庆祝过去的方式,but to add a new chapter to the story.

是时候吃中国传统菜肴了,从我们的瓷器柜中取出的银制餐具和旧玻璃器皿。(玛丽·卡罗尔·加里蒂/TNS)

So,为什么我们不都用我们的古董餐具呢?我们经常听到的原因之一是人们认为他们的模式太过时了。也许你还记得奶奶是怎么用桌上的瓷器的,and it's just not your look.或者你想象不出一种方法来给这些旧的部分新的能量,to help them assume a brand new personality.如果是这样,你所需要的只是一张桌子的改造!

当堂娜,我们视觉设计团队的一员,在商店里创造灵感表,she often features the vintage and antique china we carry.As she is styling the tables,她说,人们停下来,惊奇地发现,当老美人和新的餐桌元素放在一起时,他们看起来是多么的完全不同。唐娜说人们经常分享他们关于中国的故事,他们从不使用的银和玻璃器皿。Then she shows them how to see these familiar friends with new eye.

We encourage people to bring in a place setting of their china so we can do a makeover.当你把盘子和新桌布或餐巾配对时会发生什么?Or slip in an unusual charger?Are there other dish patterns you can mix in,like a salad plate with a contemporary pattern or a white dinner plate with an interesting edge?How about finishing the place setting with colored goblets?Or a sweet cut glass dish?

Use your imagination when trying to find new ways to incorporate your vintage pieces into your daily life.我喜欢在古色古香的芹菜罐子里种些纸白色的球茎,在黑暗的冬天给我的家带来一些春天的欢乐。旧玻璃杯和碗可以装办公用品。托盘可用于放置装饰性显示器。Dishes can become artwork.Platters can corral your mail.Toothpick holders can become vases for petite bouquets or tea lights.

今年,resolve to open the doors of your china cabinet and set free all the beauties inside.Invite them to your table,它们每天都能温暖你的心,成为新篇章的一部分。
