Watercolorist's Table Setting

Home & Registry

Watercolor looks are making a splash on fashion, eye make-up trends, hand-painted wedding stationery, bedding and all manner of home textiles. This fluidly romantic painting style is perfect on plates as well. The unstructured, yet naturalistic, flowers and leaves on this "Watercolor Petals" salad plate by Shelley Hesse for Anthropologie are charming with na ïf elegance. Like a painter working from a palette, I'd mix the colors in these quasi-transparent brushstrokes with other solid color or banded dishes to make my own table setting work of art.
