Duckydora Autumn Dining

Autumn has arrived and this usually means heating on, wrapping up in coats and scarves and bracing ourselves for the cold.  We have been lucky to have a more gentle start to the season this year but today I can feel the nip in the air.
With the change of the season thoughts often also turn to a re-think in our decor.  Many people often go for darker, autumnal colours to add a touch of the seasonal to their home, but I am a firm believer you can decorate with pale colours all year round.

When I was contacted by the British design duo Duckydora and asked if I would like to review some of their products, I was really pleased to discover they make the perfect pale pottery.  Ideal for my home and perfect for my pale autumn themed dining table.

I chose four dinner plates and a salad serving bowl (I am also going to use it for pasta )  in the lovely pale blue and white Sienna design.  The Duckydora range consists of four designs : Amalfi, Florence,Sienna and Verona and consists of Pottery, Fabrics, home interiors, Accessories, gifts and even items for your pets.  You can see the range HERE

The sister duo are born and bred in Leicestershire and pride themselves on providing quality products made in Britain by talented British artisans.  I can certainly vouch for the fact that they have achieved that with the pottery items I received.  Beautifully made, the bowl and plates are tactile, generous in proportion and hand painted.  Each piece has the feel of individuality.

Do pop over to the Duckydora website to view the whole range.  If you are thinking of going pale for Autumn you will not be disappointed.

Many thanks once again to Duckydora .

    Oh you found white gourds! I love your style, but I am more of a yellow and orange kind of gall!

    Is that what they are called Jen ? I found my pale blue grey one at a local Farm shop. I thought it was called a blue squash. I am learning all the time ha !

    Such lovely styling Karen. As you know I love this design too from Duckydora but your photos have shown how they work so well in a white scheme and not just in more colourful interiors.

    Thank you Molly. I have always been a firm believer that you pale colours work just as well in the winter months. x

    Duckydora has some beautiful things. I've had the chance to look over their website quite a few times in the last few days and have fallen in love with quite a few things. Your table setting is gorgeous!
