Delicious Ideas













I love all these beautiful dressers and plate racks.  What a great idea it is to have all your dinnerware displayed on shelves and dressers, not locked away where you can't see them!

  1. I dream about having all white dishes, a large open shelving unit AND the space to store that unit! Lovely images as usual Leigh.

  4. Love all of these Leigh. Unfortunately for me, even though I do have all white dishes, I fear if I had them on display I would be forever cleaning the darn things! Or at least "thinking" i should be cleaning them.
    Really gorgeous images as usual Leigh.

  5. Lovely! This makes me want to have a dinner party! But only if I can have some of those amazingly gorgeous peonies from your last post. Gosh, how can I wait until May??

  6. That is exactly what I'm doing in our kitchen. One side will have shelves not unlike the last image, but big drawers underneath.

    I love the selection, as always, thanks Leigh.

  7. I absolutely agree. If I had it to do over, I wouldn't have remodeled my kitchen with cabinets. I'd love to have them all open where I could see the dishes. And it would have been so much cheaper too.

  9. Beautiful displays of china and crockery on lovely dressers and shelves, Leigh.
    I only have white china as, I think that it looks really good out on the dresser and I also think that food looks at it's best on a white plate.
    Fabuous images. I could make room for any of them. XXXX

  10. Love your blog! As for the open shelving...what about dust all over those dishes all the time...seems like glass fronts is a better option. I have an open hutch and I am always having to wash unused plates because of a dust film. ( BTW, I am a good housekeeper...dust just happens. :) )

  11. HI Leigh
    Just like Jacqueline I only have white china.. It makes it easy to buy extra too.. but I still love a few few accents pieces and any one of these displays would show them off to their full advantage...

    You Have a great choice here as some could easily be achieved by a DIY project... but I'd really love one of those country dressers...
    have a great day Leigh.. xx Julie

  12. I'm sure I could never keep it looking like that, but it's really delightful and good-feeling.

  13. Bonjour Leigh,
    Lovely collection of photos, the open shelves look so pretty and gives you a chance to show off your dishes!
    When I moved to Paris I soon learned that many French kitchens are set up like this, at first I wasn't so sure about the set up but have come to love the idea.
    Thanks for all the inspiration!

  19. Wonderful displays indeed - they're neat the crockery is beautiful and enhances the space in which they "live" ...

  20. Hi Leigh,
    Oh my, these are stunning! These would fit... ummm... nowhere in my house! But I am stashing them away in my 'I shall have' file for now! I love the huge white dresser with the crooked doors the best.. so much character.
