OK, yesterday, I had striped bowls on the brain. Strange, I know. But I was checking out this story on styleathome.com ( Bargain beauty: Decorating for less) and I couldn`t stop admiring the striped bowls that caught my eye in the story`s photo. So, I started looking for stylish striped bowls to include in my blog. Alas, I couldn`t find the exact ones featured in the story but I did find another set of dishware that I quite liked. (You can check out that blog post here.) But, thanks to the help of my colleague (Helen Racanelli, editor of canadianliving.com, who insisted I credit her for the elusive find) I was directed to the designer/manufacturer of the exact bowls I was marveling at. Alors, voila! These cheerful and bold bowls by Scandinavian design company iittala can be found online at dinnerplates.com and the full product line ranges in price from $10 to $42. P.S. dinnerplates.com ships to Canada!
