Mismatched china give that laid-back and cozy feel to the whole table look. I, personally, love mismatched china. The ones that I like best are the ones with Victorian flowers. Right now I am preparing an exam concerning Victorian literature. I find it interesting after the dark Medieval literature and Romanticism.
Mismatched chairs are also something that I would like to have someday in a household. Especially if they are in various warm colours they simply scream: feels like home!
I am seriously upset about the whole production of modern things and I also think by using mismatched old things, we recycle and that way we protect our nature.
Do you prefer re-using old furniture and dishes that you find on the flea market or at your grandma's, or you go for the modern alternative?
P.S. I figured it doesn't take such a long time to post on my blog when I'm inspired, so I am going to be posting more often.
