Pastel Hues for Spring - Elegant Colors for the Blooming Season!

It is currently springtime in Japan, with many flowers such as cherry blossoms, rapeseed blossoms, wisteria, and more painting the scenery with their gentle, lovely colors. Why not add these pops of pastel to your home as well? We have selected some wonderful BECOS items decorated with the beautiful springtime colors of Japan!

Shochu Server (Stand Included)

Shochu server

Light yet sturdy, this server would make a great addition to any countertop! It was crafted in Shiga Prefecture from Shiragaki ware, a type of pottery that dates back over 1,000 years in Japan. The striped pattern adds a modern yet casual flare. The nozzle is very easy to turn, both letting the contents gently trickle out and also quickly shutting it off.

Shochu server

Although categorized as a “shochu” (distilled Japanese alcohol) server, it can be used for a variety of beverages, such as water or juice! Now that the weather’s getting warmer, why not bring this out for a relaxing barbeque or picnic?

Ceramic Tumbler

Pastel ceramic tumblers

Also crafted from Shigaraki ware, these tumblers are decorated with gorgeous pastel colors that are extremely satisfying on the eyes. They are also on the larger side, allowing you to carry around plenty of liquid with you.

Seven Lucky Gods Cup

Seven Lucky Gods Cup

The entirety of this cup (and even the inside!) is decorated with drawings of the seven lucky Japanese gods. Entirely handmade, no two pieces are the same, each being a treasure of its own.

We loved the irregular shape of the cup, as we felt it brought even more personality and charm, and complemented the ancient-style clothing adorning the gods. These adorable drawings are sure to bring a smile to your face whenever you use the cup!

Japanese Lanterns

Not only are these lanterns decorated with beautiful Japanese-inspired designs, but they can also act as message cards! You can write or illustrate messages on the negative space of the lanterns, creating a sentimental piece of art.

Although compact when packaged, they are incredibly easy to put together and flatten again. The lanterns can be stood up or hung, and gently illuminate the space with a calming, warm light.
