When I was down in Pennsylvania last year and visited Terrain with my parents, my mom bought me a beautiful serving pitcher (that's also a measuring cup with gorgeous script on the inside) from Sophie Conran's tableware collection for Portmeirion. The mixing bowl above is amazing too. Have you seen these pieces?
I wouldn't mind completing the collection. It has a beautiful tactile feel and a totally classic, versatile look. You can dress it up for the most elegant dinner but it still feels relaxed enough for coffee and scones for breakfast or soup and a salad for lunch.
It's a little bit modern and a little bit country. The wavy organic lines make it feel like it just came off the potter's wheel.
And yet the lines aren't haphazard. Instead they impart a grace and sophistication I adore.
Luckily I'm traveling this Thanksgiving and not hosting, so there's still time to replace my sad, stained and chipped dinnerware! So for next year, I'm envisioning my new dishes and bowls at home in settings like this. And bringing any of these moods into my home...
