Orion Porcelain Plate Set

Our modern life style is a total chaos: we eat and sleep on the run, so I can say we live on the run, always hurrying somewhere. Hence the health problems with our stomach and digestive system. Well, if you come to think of it, grandma was absolutely right when she insisted so much for us to have at least dinner together as a family. That happened in the dining room and all the members of our family were there, eating from the “good” dinnerware in a very cozy and calm atmosphere. I still try to do this at home now, but I only succeed for Sunday meals. Any way, I think porcelain plates make dinner a lot more festive than the carton plates at the fast food restaurants. Here is a wonderful Orion Porcelain Plate Set that is old, but very well preserved and looking amazing.

The set was designed in 1944 by Wolfgang von Wersin and was manufactured by the Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg, Germany. The set is made of white porcelain and is really fine, being polished and having an exquisite gold rim that is painted by hand. The four different size plates and the cup make the set complete for dinner and make it rather a collectible than some dinnerware that you use regularly. The set can now be purchased for $2,590 from Moss Online.

The beauty of having a turquoise kitchen island

Turquoise is a very beautiful color. It’s not as common as blue, red or the always elegant black and white but it can be a really stylish shade to take into consideration when decorating your home. It might seem pretentious but it’s actually quite easy to integrate in any type of décor. In the kitchen, for example, a turquoise island would make a big difference. Here are a few examples.

1. A pale turquoise kitchen island from Miami.

As in the case of any color, there are different shades of turquoise. If you like this color but don’t want to have a too colorful kitchen you can opt for a pale tone of turquoise for your kitchen island. It would match nicely with white furniture and it also mixes well with other colors as well. This particular shade tends to be a little more elegant than other just because it doesn’t stand out as much and it has a certain simplicity to it.{found on site}.

Espresso Set with Beautiful Square Cups

If you challenge a creative mind to something, it will always come up with some interesting ideas and solutions to anything. In this case the designer proved really ingenious when they came up with the idea of designing a special Espresso Set with Beautiful Square Cups. Everything about this set is special and this makes it so original and unique. First of all, the six espresso cups included in the set are square in shape and have no handles. Then they have a special place on top where to put the teaspoon you use to mix the sugar in the coffee. If you place the spoon there, you make sure you can find it all the time and not misplace it.

The spoons are also square, almost flat and are made of metal, so I would advise you to be careful when you want to warm up the espresso in the microwave oven. But this is not all: the wooden tray the espresso set sits on is made especially for this set and has detachable coasters, also made of wood. They simply come out from the tray and you can use them on the table. The designer , Fellina Sok-Cham , made this set in 2008 from bamboo and now you can order it for $65.

Add elegance to your kitchen with granite countertops

Granite countertops are not only beautiful and elegant but also very functional. It’s why they are so popular in kitchens and bathrooms. Granite is a strong and hard-wearing material and it comes deep inside Earth. It starts as liquid magma and it can up to millions of years for the rock to form. Of course, this is the case of natural granite but there are artificial replacements as well.

Because of its durability, granite is used for structures that need to last longer such as tombstones and countertops. The granite is extracted from a quarry, cut and then sanded and polished. After adding any details and customizing it, the granite countertop is installed in our kitchen. You might not realize it, but you have a piece of history in your home.
