When it comes to collections of items, my favorite is a gathering of white china or dishes. I love that you can make these groupings look modern or traditional, and that the pieces are easy to obtain. I have a pigeonhole bookcase that doubles as storage for my dishes -- and it is where I keep all of my white ones, proudly displayed and prettily styled. In my future woodsy vacation home, I would love to have a collection of more vintage pieces, as opposed to the newer variety. Here, some inspiration pictures to start your weekend off with something lovely.
