a love for the old: pewter
Hi! It's Fran from Green Street and it's a pleasure to be filling in for Casey while she is away. A huge thanks to Casey for asking me to guest blog—her blog is a daily must read! So, with Casey traveling in Italy, I couldn't help but think of a rural, provincial life—almost stepping back in time. With autumn upon us, it felt appropriate to do a post on one of my favorite tabelware pieces—pewter.
Here, an antique pedestal table topped with some beautiful pewter pieces. To me pewter represents the old—a love for what was once before—so simple and timeless in design. Not too dissimilar to Italy. And, like Italy, pewter is versatile. Take pewter and 'match' it with more contemporary designs and you can't go wrong.
Pewter flatware mixed with a modern (nautical) themed place setting. I'm loving those faux bois plates.
Here, a beautiful mix of old and new candlesticks that would look so pretty on a table or mantel.
And, I leave you with a beautiful tablescape which reminds me of the idyllic Italian countryside. So, have you tried to incorporate any pewter in your home design? If not, would you?
Thank you again, Casey. We hope you're having a wonderful time!!
