Keeping Up With the Times

I've talked in the past about how excited I am on Thursday mornings before I even have my second cup of coffee to open up the Home section of the New York Times.  Today's feature that popped out at me was the Q & A with Diane Keaton.  Did you know Diane is teaming up with Bed Bath & Beyond to create what they refer to as a tabletop collection called K by Keaton?  It is a line of stoneware cups, bowls, and plates inspired by the earth.

Let's take a peek...

K by Keaton dinnerware shown in grass and white (also comes in bark and wheat)

I love the endless possibilities of the white but really any of these you'd be able to mix and match with fun napkins or other pretty table linens.

And how about these appetizer plates...

Dishwasher safe.  Microwave safe.  20% BBB coupon.  Perfect!

Some other info I learned about Diane Keaton:
- Considered a serial flipper and she has bought and renovated several homes in Southern California
- This collection was inspired by her children and the need for durable goods in the kitchen - goods that were solid and well made.
- Diane is also on the board of the Los Angeles Conservancy for architectural preservation

What are your favorite dinnerware pieces that you go back to time and time again? 


  1. I registered for set of classic white dishwater from Crate and Barrel 10 years ago and I still love it. I'll always stick with white because it is such a classic!

  2. Very interesting! I love Diane Keaton so I'm looking forward to it. Maybe she'll even surprise us with some coastal elements a la Something's Gotta Give. At least I can wish!
