Home wares, so much choice, and what can seem to be at times, so little time in choosing the right decor in decorating and uplifting your pad. This article should be a time saver in itself, especially if you're re-decorating the home post-renovation phase.
Some people can just survive with a few plates, and a couple of knives and forks, however you always need an ample supply of dinnerware available just in case. It is not fun shopping for home ware items under intense time pressure. You need to allow yourself some ample time in choosing the right dinner sets. Some top picks include the Kimono range from Maxwell & Williams, comprising of some elegant Japanese designs. Love the cute pink tea cups and saucers, as well as the white dinner sets with beautiful floral designs in tact. For a high tea experience in the home, their 3 tier floral designs in black, red and blue are just so different. Otherwise, for the popular and can't go wrong plain white (with a splash of aqua) dinner sets, the Donna Hay range spells quality without chipping away at the ends. Old school chinaware is back as well. Think white and blue distinctive patterns. You will know when you see them.

You can't go wrong with a thin, clear vase. It is important to remove your flowers, wash and refill such vases on a daily basis to avoid a dark coloured look. Freedom Furniture, David Jones and Myer sell some quality clear vases that are ideal for either hand washing, or for putting through the dishwasher. Ideally, flower vases are best to hand wash. Whether you're into flowers or not, the vases pictured below by Georg Jensen do not come cheap, yet they're versatile and fashionable. Great for flowers, yet just as great without any flowers, sitting on a mantle piece below a mirror in the hallway near the front door. The latter is just a home decorating suggestion, and one that has worked.

Thanks to T2, and to luxury home wares brand such as Royal Albert China, teapots have never been so fashionable before, and especially with the floral designs, and the multiple use of colours. French patisserie Laudree in Sydney's Westfield Sydney serve their decadent teas in such pristine teapots. Suddenly afternoon tea is back in vogue again for some.
