Why do restaurants use white plates? You know, when they are white, I don’t think I notice them, but I focus on just the food at the restaurant. It’s just the norm, and it serves its purpose — showcasing the food. However, when I recall my dining experience at Curate in Asheville, not only do I remember the superb culinary skills of the chef, I also distinctly remember noticing the serving platter, dark grey stone slab with varying edges. It caught my eye because it was unique, but it didn’t distract from the food; it actually enhanced the entire experience.

So there, I made my case for getting an exotic dining set for my upcoming new home.

But, I do agree… as much as I love the bold blue waves, I’m not sure how that would complement every dish. So, no, I haven’t made up my mind yet, but I think I might do a bit of mixing… seems to be the new trend! Something like this, except with other patterns:
