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

1 Comment 22 March 2010

Blog reprint from Sketch42

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?

Its the time of year that you’ve been dreading, but have no fear!

We’ve scoured the internet for the coolest in kids boxes, containers, and items to organize the stuff in your kids rooms that they REALLY want to keep.

Just click on the pics to purchase!

My favorite kids storage site was The Land of Nod- their selection was by far the greatest.

Although, I’ve chosen the brightly colored storage items, they have adorable nursery storage bins in pastels.

If your drawer space is tight these hanging storage shelves are a lifesaver-

These mini-drawers are great for school and craft supplies-

These stackable cubes can be found at Modern Seed

Kids should always have books to read  that are at eye level-

I love these recycled filpflop bins from VivaTerra !

These modern bins are sure to do the trick from My Urban Child

The following items can be purchased at Clever Tomato

Great for books and educational toys -
