A couple of years ago, I made the decision I wanted to add more color to our kitchen. We have the standard colors in the kitchen, brown, grey and tan, and they’re only accented by the colors of the appliances that are white, black and grey (mostly). One of the biggest ways I started adding color was by getting a colorful china set that we use every day. The plates purposely mismatch, and yet, all match each other in their own way. However, this brings a new issue when I get new accessories – because finding something that perfectly matches my colorful and mismatched style isn’t as easy as it sounds.
Last year, I was introduced to French Bull. A brand with a link of kitchenware and housewares that are bright, have fun colors and different patterns. And one of the latest in their line is their new Terrazzo patterns. They sent me a Terrazzo plate to check out, and like many of their other dinner ware, it is made out of food safe melamine. The pattern is bright, a little disjointed and incorporates a ton of colors that we already have in our place settings. Terrazzo’s pattern is named after the flooring style, of the same name, that dates back to ancient Rome and possible before, where pieces of rocks and glass were placed inside a mortar setting. The patterns are beautiful, and last for years, and in a similar way so will the Terrazzo products from French Bull.
The modern twist on a classic, the Terrazzo plates bring in bright pop colors in disjointed shapes and they actually go with just about anything you put on them. Completely dishwasher safe, the plates can even go in the oven up to 356 degrees. While the plate is lightweight, it is much more versatile than you would think, and incredibly strong. The melamine structure makes it the perfect plate to take with you on the go, to picnics and use day to day. It’s a fun pattern that you wouldn’t mine using every day and incorporating in your regular plate rotation.
