I don’t know that many people take enough time, or really any time for that matter, to think about their favorite type of dishware. Have you?
Well, I certainly have. Without a doubt, my favorite culinary container is the bowl. I love bowls. Tyler, on the other hand, is more of a glass-man, although I don’t think he’s actually ever thought about it like I have (Tyler’s Note: Nope). I just notice weird things like that.
A couple of years ago, I spotted this photo on Pinterest, which really started my love affair with bowls.
It made me realize a new dream of mine – to own a collection of bowls that would allow me to create a similarly stunning wall of color in my kitchen. Now, I know. Weird and super wasteful. Even with a family one day, I would need about twenty kids to make use of all of those bowls, and Tyler and I are not about to become the next Duggars.
So, yes, my dream has had to shrink some because, obviously, this wall of wonder is simply not feasible for my future. That being said, twelve to fifteen bowls of varying sizes? a shelf of beauty? Now, that I can do.
My odyssey for the perfect collection began this past February when I asked my parents for some bowls for my birthday. Yes, they scratched their heads at that request, but I did get two pretty bowls from West Elm to start my collection!
If you are equally enamored with beautiful bowls, here are my top shops to start perusing:
This is by far THE BEST store for finding cute bowls that are not outrageously priced.
Each new line brings me great joy.
A little more expensive than West Elm, but an equally awesome selection.
Lots of choices at a great price.
Not the largest selection, but there are always one or two amazing options, and…the price can’t be beat!
