Dining Room Tablescapes

No Comments 07 April 2010

A lot of people ask me how they should set up their dining table when they aren’t using it. Runners, candle sticks, flowers?

There are a lot of different ways to stage a dining room table. The arrangement should depend on the look of your room, but also on how often you use your table. If you use it every night for dinner, it would be very irritating to have a lot of different things to remove every night!

This is the dining room of designer Kelly Wearstler. They must not eat here often!

The eye needs something to look at when it comes into a room. That means layering objects of varying heights, textures and styles somewhere in the room. Even if you have a modern or minimalist home, layering is a must to create interest.

All these objects dont need to be on your dining table. You can leave the table bare, or simply styled and create a table scape on your sideboard.

Sometimes one chic vase or sculpture is enough to carry the whole room.

Create a grouping of vases or objects. You dont even have to put flowers in those.

A tray  helps to unify objects that dont seem to be related. It makes them look neat and intentional as opposed to a pile of stuff that you just left somewhere. A tray with tea service, candle sticks, glasses, vases or a stack of dishes will look chic in the center of a table or on a sideboard.


Some other things to consider:

1. Books

2. Potted plants

3. Use what you have!  Your serving platters, cake stands and cloches could look great when artfully arranged.

And remember to change it up and experiment!

Black & White Striped Tables: Kosher Style

I’m so wanting a black and white stripe table cloth for my dining room table. I think it looks really fresh and exciting, especially when its super wide, like the one below.

Here it is on the chairs, I love it. Looks kind of summery and outdoorsy.

This one is blue and white, but I love the nautical feel and I thought the picture was so pretty.

I love it here again… It looks great on a round table!

Softer, and with lucite chairs and feathers? I love the way the table cloth looks!

This rug, and those chairs, and that table cloth. YUM.

Very skinny stripes. But pretty.

Those curtains. WOW.

Napkin anyone?
