Displaying china in cabinets

I love looking at how other people arrange their dressers and cabinets. I have a real weakness for dressers and china cabinets… Hence my huge piece :) Of course, space permitting, I have another 2 (which are in storage).

Whilst unpacking and organising my favourite china pieces, I faced the conundrum.. how do you stack china cups and saucers?

Like this? (This is what I’ve always done)

Favourite display

This is my favourite display by far. Of course, you’d have to have heaps of space!!! I reckon my all white Johnson Bros would look spectacular in a similar cabinet, but a bright yellow, chartruese or hot pink…

The Woman behind the Blog

Welcome to my blog! It’s such a pleasure having you here.

What are you inspired by? I am inspired by beautiful and bright interiors, fabric, furniture, pinks, yellows, greens, chairs, china, trees, chocolate, peonies, hydrangeas, cherry blossoms, roses and rhubarb with cream.

Friends and family call me drey (pronounced 'dree'... short for Audrey) and I can often be found zipping through op-shops and vintage stores in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.
