Spring Flowers - Antique Hydrangeas, French Tulips and Hyacinth in various old French Creamware, English Ironstone and American McCoy Pitchers and Vases.
My taste in color and the use of pattern in decorating is changing. My decorating over the last few years has focused on using less bright colors and, instead, adding more textures to a room. I'm using more and more Flax and Natural colored Belgian Linen for upholstery and then adding color and pattern in accent items such as pillows. As my color preferences change, or to add "seasonality" to a room, I can change out relatively inexpensive pillows instead of whole sofas or chairs.

As you can see from the arrangement on my table, I am not a "purist." I mix all styles, all vintages together. I don't care if it is old or new - I buy what I like. Mixed in with the vintage pitchers and serving platters are two new Williams-Sonoma tiered cake stands.
Old and new "stoneware" in my kitchen.
Au revoir, Mitty
