My love of black and white is getting a little out of control. Thankfully, this classic combination is a perpetual favorite for both fashion and the home, so I have plenty of ways to indulge. Black and white ginger jars, pillows, vases, throws, trays, shirts, shoes, dresses… the list just goes on. In this first post celebrating black and white together, I’ll take a closer look at an Emilia Ceramics favorite: the black and white chevron ginger jar.
Talavera Vazquez’s Mexican ceramics remain some of the most popular in the collection, their bold colors and patterns perfectly fusing modern and traditional aesthetics. Their ginger jars capture this sensibility nicely: traditional shape and ceramic method, glazed with designs that have a contemporary edge. Though the black and white chevron ginger jar is ubiquitous in design blogs and interior designers’ showrooms, the other black and white ginger jars are equally striking.
Small ginger jars add a black and white note to desks, bathrooms, and nooks. Larger ginger jars flank staircases, fireplaces, or sit in solitary splendor on shelves and end tables. And for those who want more versatility than the vase/storage/decoration combination a traditional ginger jar brings, there are always ginger jar lamps to shine light on the matter. Orange, yellow, and blue and white ginger jars as well as multicolored pattern extravaganzas make for ginger jars continuing to appear in decorating schemes of every style.
Which of these black and white ginger jars is your favorite? What kind of black and white accents will you add to your own collection in the coming months? Look for more black and white inspiration to come in future posts.
