  1. Dansk Kobenstyle Butter Warmer in Midnight Blue, $39.95 from Amazon: We adore this squatty little pot for all the times you need to heat up a little something — milk, soup, butter. And the deep midnight blue color would look great stored on the stove or an open shelf.

  5. Set of 10 Color Napkins, $90 from Kara Weaves: Each napkin is lovely on its own, but so pretty seen together as a full set!
  6. Le Creuset Pepper Mill, $35 from Le Creuset: We love these tall, colorful pepper mills – perfect for setting on the dinner table.
  7. Color-Cut Cake Stand, $12-$24 from Anthropologie: Because every cake your favorite baker bakes deserves to be displayed like a work of art.
  8. Green Dipped Ceramic Canister, $14.99 from World Market: The gradient hue gives just the right amount of color.
