Are you Enamored with Enamelware?

I posted yesterday about incorporating some enamelware into my beach house yesterday.  I had a couple (one) comments and questions about it. Enamelware or Graniteware, also known as camping dinnerware has been around for a while.

You can collect old pieces or start a collection of a new set.  It comes in many colors, patterns, shapes and sizes.  To me it is very quintessential Americana, perfect for BBQ, patio parties, camping and summer!  I am personally a fan of the cobalt swirl pattern.

Golden Rabbit – I have this serving bowl and it so light and easy to use for salads.

This wooden charger from Williams-Sonoma would be a great accent to a blue swirl plate on top.

I found  2 sets of these olive wood knives from Laguiole at Home Goods this winter. You can also buy them at Williams-Sonoma. The wood handle has that outdoorsy feel to go with the enamelware…like Glamping.

Dishtowels or napkin set from Amazon – I would also use these under serving bowls as accents.

 

I have started a small collection that I plan to use for the 4th of July.  It is such a happy and fun pattern for the summer months.  Good luck!

 

P.S. For those of you who love black and white – there is a really cool b&w pattern from Golden Rabbit. Mixed with garden greens and white linens would make quite a statement.
