editor's pick: one of a kind show ceramic dishes

By: Erin McLaughlin

One of the most difficult things for me about shopping for holiday gifts is that I can be totally selfish. Often I'll find things that I want when I'm supposed to be shopping for others! Such was the case when I was shopping with Style at Home's senior style editor Ann Marie Favot at the One of A Kind show. Ann Marie and I have similar taste (although she tends to like all decor accessories in pale colours while I have a tendency to prefer decor accessories that are rich and dark). When I first saw Ceramik B's elegant pottery, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. When I looked at Ann Marie, I realized that she felt the same way. Best of all? The tableware pieces are available in pale grey AND dark grey.

But back to me being selfish. I have come up with a system: if a friend and I each want the same thing, we purchase it each for one another. That way we're not being "selfish." Ann Marie bought me a tiny perfect dish - it as an art piece to me. And I love it.
