When displaying ceramics, high contrast color helps collectibles pop off the shelves.
Few aspects of home décor are as interesting as well-displayed objects. I adore pillows and lush upholstery details but displaying ceramics — interesting vases, plates and cache pots in a single vibrant color like turquoise seems like an object lesson of its own. Fluted, high-gloss Haeger vases and McCoy pieces [top] are massed together on a chippy white shelf. They make an unmistakable statement about 1950s sensibility. The ceramics have interesting textures based on bamboo, wood, leaf and floral motifs as well.
I’m always surprised by how glamorous assorted white pottery pieces can be. After all, it’s just white. But shown against a seductively dark red wall and matching shelves, even the simplest white ceramics collection will shine. Photos like these spur me to take second and third looks around the house and worry that I don’t have enough of the same thing to make for an interesting wall!
