We find ourselves in “re-entry” mode as our calendars fill up a bit more and we are venturing out in ways we haven’t in a while. Summer concerts, a gathering or two and weekend celebrations are pulling us in different directions once again. Simply returning home for rest and repose makes us smile. Relying on our capsule pieces brings stability and beauty throughout the entire home. For both inside and outside living areas, Rowe Pottery adds a cozy touch that fits in with any design style, bringing warmth and texture to your home décor.
Start by using our Rowe pottery crocks for display or storage. Roll newspapers, display magazines or hold kindling or long matches for functional container storage. Traditional collectors know that a curio display of your pottery collection is a stately way to showcase your favorites while leaving it at your fingertips for daily use. We also love to see pottery collections displayed on open shelving for modern farmhouse and transitional design styles. Nothing says modern Farmhouse style like pottery combined with natural finish wood. And, if your main living area is a porch this time of year, open shelving is the perfect touch.
Consider flipping your platters vertically against the back of the display to feature their designs and provide an extra layer of visual appeal. Place crocks and vessels with volume toward the center to anchor the display and vary smaller pieces in height and color to fill in the gaps. If you like a lighter, modern style, group your pottery by color to make a statement. For traditional decorating, mix Classic salt glaze or Provincial ash glaze. All Rowe Pottery can be displayed together since the stoneware aesthetic unifies the display. Be sure your shelving is secure as your pottery will be weighty!
Around the hearth or firepit, Rowe Pottery is the ideal way to incorporate some stone near the fire elements of your home. Plus, pottery can provide an easy seasonal theme. We’re inspired by our summer patterns right now including lemon, bumblebee, wildflower and bloom. When you put some colorful blooms into a floral crock or vessel, the whole area lightens up. During holiday time, simply place pine greens in your crocks and vessels make home feel cozy and bright. For a timeless design that transcends all seasons, consider a custom or personalized crock to fit your home. Our decorator will create the design of your choice, even a photo of your home. A custom or personalized crock also makes a meaningful wedding or anniversary gift featuring the couple’s invitation design or a Rowe Pottery pattern of your choice.
Lighting in the living room is an important capsule that brightens the area. We have several lamp options, from decorated lamps to modern Ridges choices. Of course, we think every living room needs a candle crock or two to add a multi-sensory lighting experience. Our 100% soy candle crocks come in a 1.5 pint crock and burn so clean that you can reuse the crock when the candle is done. We expect a 70-hour burn time from our candles and a key tip is to let the candle burn all the way to the edge with each burn to prevent funneling. If you are a candle lover, choose our candle subscription to be sure that you always have a fresh Rowe Pottery candle crock ready for each season. This year, we are featuring our Wildflower design for summer, Cider candle for fall, Holiday Holly and Simply Rowe crocks for the new year which will become favorites. You can find our candle subscription on www.rowepottery.com.
Pottery adds instant earthiness, warmth and comfort to your inside living room décor. Take a look at your coffee table or larger ottoman and consider a pottery platter to collect random items into one display. When items are placed on a platter, the eye sees them as one unit so it reduces visual clutter. Plus, it’s a great place to put your coffee mug without needing a coaster (in case your coffee mug ever leaves your hand). Or, serve lemonade or sweet tea to your porch guests in one of our beautiful pitchers. Cold drinks stay even colder in our pottery.
Add vessels like vases, low bowls or our utensil jar to hold potted plants, fresh cut flowers or accents like decorative spheres and balls of yarn. Bringing Rowe Pottery into the living areas of your home adds earthiness and handcrafted style to the areas where your family gathers most.
