Red is my favorite color, so I know I can’t go wrong with this red bamboo bowl.($28.00) It’s 14-inches wide and hails from Ten Thousand Villages.
I love a mix of cultures. This 7-inch square bowl is perfect to sit atop books, or to stand amidst other accessories on a table ($44.95). Find it at Novica.
Since my first trip to Colombia I have been trying to find an authentic bowl like these, to no avail. While the originals have a darker patina, these are the next best thing. I found these Naan Bowls at Restoration Hardware. The large size is about 20-inches in diameter at sells for $149.
Don’t rule out the tried and true shopping spots like Pottery Barn. If you accessorize them right, they will be uniquely your own. I like these authentic, antique dough bowls from Hungary. They comes in different sizes, starting at 37″ long and the small size sells for $199.
Spend a little, spend a lot. Buy it new or old. But make it your own and you’ll love where you live just a little bit more. Cheers!
