Have you ever wished that you could wake up in an English farmhouse, sprigs of heather and primroses in a vase on the bedside and the smell of fresh-baked cardamom scones and just-brewed tea wafting up through the perfectly weathered old floorboards? Sigh. Us too. Luckily, until our "dreamhouse in the Cotswolds" becomes a reality, we've got just the thing for bringing some of those beautiful English countryside vibes into our everyday: John Julian's exquisitely crafted porcelain.
It is not absolutely *necessary* that your dishware simultaneously evoke a feeling of fresh, simple, modern beauty and an ineffable nostalgia for a classic bygone era (the exact specifics of which remain gloriously fuzz-toned in the inexact way of feelings) but ISN'T IT NICE WHEN IT DOES??
Every gardener has her favorite tool (Lillian gravitates towards the spade, Susannah the hand-mattock), and when we stop and think...why? It all comes down to the feeling that you get when you pick it up.
