How to: upgrade your everyday
Plates that were made for brunching
Whether it’s pancakes or bran flakes, every breakfast can look like your favourite brunch spot’s work. Ever wondered how they make a chunk of cheese on toast look gourmet? It’s all about the right colour palette and the latest revival trend for lust-worthy ceramics. Forks at the ready.
The new potters kiln’ it are giving our cupboards a welcome update with a fresh take on crockery. Whether they’re misshapen, unfinished or painted, it’s all about ceramics that showcase that artisanal quality you only used to be able to get from a really expensive, one-of-a-kind, handcrafted piece. But not anymore. These grey glazed bowls give you that luxe look without the price tag, while the organic hand-spun form adds extra soul to supper. We’ll be taking the whole set, please.
Now you’ve got some serious cereal killer bowls, it’s time to dress the table. Forget occasion-only placemats – these soft grey ones are designed to gussy up your table each day of the week. Fancy centrepieces are a no-no for everyday (sorry but we’d rather spend the time in bed) but try filling a jam jar with a handful of wild flowers like garden pansies or wild daisies and voila! Every Saturday looks a million dollars.
A good brunch calls for a good coffee right? Check out our expert barista tips for making the perfect cup at home here.
