Life is full of important things to do and remember. But it's also just as important to remember to take a break and relax. This is often accompanied by a cup of tea or coffee. The act of enjoying a cup is also heightened by making good use of designer accessories. Here at Homecolours we feel there are lots of ways that great design makes a lovely difference to this everyday activity. Here are 5 of them.
Adding some extra colour and style to your morning cup of espresso is more than possible with the above Könitz Script Collage Espresso Cup Set. The wonderfully produced cups and saucers detail a typeface inspired collection of letters in various colour tones. Strongly made in porcelain, the cups are just the thing for livening up a coffee break.
Coffee aficionados are fantastically served with the above Kinto Slow Coffee Style Speciality Brewer 4 Cup Set. Compiling everything needed to create a deliciously formulated cup, the set offers a filter, brewer, stand, holder and server. Brilliant for finely attuning to the ritual of making coffee, the set can produce up to four cups each brew.
Brewing Tea in Style
Making tea in a tea pot is a great way of allowing the tea to properly infuse and circulate. Many believe that tea from a pot tasted better than when hot water is poured straight into a bag in a mug. This can be put to the test in style with the above Fun Factory Teapot. Available in a variety of vivid colours, the pot is crafted from ceramic and provides the perfect way to brew tea.
A reviving cappuccino coffee is made even more inviting when its poured into a distinctly styled and designed cup. The above Konitz Animal Stories Raven Cappuccino Cup and Saucer Set in blue certainly ticks those boxes. Created in fine porcelain, the cup and saucer display a riotous picture series of ravens playing around. Brilliant for brightening up the coffee table.
Elegant Morning Design
Fine detailing and pop-art imagery adorn the above Early Bird Mug by Orla Kiely. Perfect for an invigorating cup of tea or coffee in the morning to help with a bit of get-up-and-go, the cup is ideal for a bright start. It would make a great housewarming gift or present for anyone who enjoys artistic finery along with their morning hot drink.
