This post had been in the plans for a while, but seeing these stunning images by London-based photographer Jake Curtis yesterday made me realise I couldn't wait any longer. One of the UK's leading interior photographers, his portfolio includes compelling dining, still life and and tablescape images. Known for his 'meticulously crafted lighting' Jake captures the spaces with extreme clarity and attention to detail. I can't help but be inspired by the gorgeous tableware and beautiful styling.
While I'm no gourmet cook or avid entertainer (relaxed summer barbies are more my style) I love ceramics and serveware. I'm always on the lookout for pieces that are stylish but can still be used everyday. Pure white will always be timeless, but marble and wood are also high on my must-have list right now. Here are some gorgeous examples.
