I previously shared a Farmacy guide of clean kitchen gadgets to toss the toxic Teflon. Here is a post on how to select for a curious + quirky little kitchen dotted with patterned bowls, pastel coloured plates, + traditional cookware. This is the premiere of a new series, The Guide, in which I will share a curation of discoveries for a charmed life . . .


My humble kitchen collection started partly with my love for the simple yet elegant Falcon enamelware pieces. I relived my joy when Lux posted a recent sale on them on their newly-premiered app. They have some other incredible lines such as MoMa, IN.SEK, Tonfisk Design, IZOLA, + the coolest PLUMEN lightbulbs for a deal. I would hope on over to get a deal on these beauties right now if I were you! Download + shop the collection here, complete with a $10 promo code if you use the code jz3yaw

ruffled rim dinnerware | These ruffled plates must be one of the prettiest plates I have come across to date, but then again, I am always for ruffles + scalloped trims!
fika spreaders | Even cultured cheese + juice cracker plates need a little sprucing up, so spread with these
treillage glassware | To sip on biodynamic wine or super-brewed herbal kombucha on tap . . .
latte bowls | I must have these in a larger range of colours +  sizes than I should but they are so incredibly versatile + beautiful! I stick to the creamy white + pastels . . .
with a twist teacup | I started my little Anthropologie kitchenware collection with teacups in college + my guests would always comment on my unmatched + fun teacups sitting in my dorm room closet

ceramics | Cary's bold + graphic yet clean ceramics are my absolute favourite—they're a piece on their own . . .

humble ceramics | Ceramics are obviously a staple for me with the addition of humble ceramics. I am in love with this handmade line from los angeles that embraces "flaws" + finds beauty in imperfections
chemex | coffee maker A kitchen is not complete with the wood-collared + leather-tied chemex
jonathan's spoons | wooden spoons Beautifully hand-carved selection of wooden spoons
luke bartels | cutting boards I have this thing with gorgeous cutting boards . . .

fferrone design | revolution carafe To fill with endless pours of hibiscus rose tonic with crushed strawberries or fresh-pressed juice

bubble glass tumbler | I also have a thing for glassware, and I love these tumblers from Terrain 
bubble glass salad bowl | The glassware continues with this soft-hued salad bowl for a light lunch
quartet flatware set | A great flatware set for a registry or to treat yourself
milk glass mixing bowl set | Jadeite bowls for vintage vibes while mixing, perhaps this incredible treat by the genius Claire of Vidya Cleanse  . . .
