Astier de Villatte

August 30, 2011

I like the idea of collecting things but I’ve yet to find something I truly love enough to start one.  At the moment I can say that I have two bastardized collections: nail polish and pigs.  I could go on forever about both but I’ll save it for another time.  Because today I’m posting about a collection I completely envy – Caitlin Flemming’s (of Sacramento Street blog) collection of Astier de Villate pieces.  For those of you that have been following Caitlin’s lifestyle blog for as long as we have, the creamy white ceramics are so her… They perfectly align…

I like the idea of collecting things but I’ve yet to find something I truly love enough to start one.  At the moment I can say that I have two bastardized collections: nail polish and pigs.  I could go on forever about both but I’ll save it for another time.  Because today I’m posting about a collection I completely envy – Caitlin Flemming’s (of Sacramento Street blog) collection of Astier de Villate pieces.  For those of you that have been following Caitlin’s lifestyle blog for as long as we have, the creamy white ceramics are so her… They perfectly align with her aesthetic of simplistic + honest + warm interiors and décor. 

You can really get a sense of her style and how she incorporates her Astier collection into her home by reading her Sneak Peek” home feature that was recently on Design*Sponge.  In the feature, Caitlin shares that she and her mom give each other an Astier de Villatte piece every year for Christmas (not once have they ever given each other the same thing!) – is that not the sweetest tradition between a mother and daughter ever?  Our mama has a few Astier ceramic pieces that I have always loved but never given much thought to besides “oooh I do love this serving piece”… So not only has Caitlin totally inspired me to start a collection of my own (one that I can have forever and possibly pass-down one day), she has really made me take a closer look at the terracotta goods that are all handmade in Paris!
