Tabletop Tuesday: Summer Fun

Tabletop Tuesday reminds you to capture some summer fun with this vibrant turquoise dish and glassware combo coupled with a playful plate of cat-eye sunglasses.

Grab your passport, sunglasses, smile, swimsuit, appetite for local culture and go. Bon voyage.

Modern Monday: Parisien Peacock

Modern Monday showcases the bottom level of a two-story Italian restaurant situated in Paris; specifically in Jean Paul Gaultier’s former flagship store. The staff even wears JP’s signature striped marine styled T-shirts.

The space features existing brick walls, raw cement columns, grey columns, peacock blue banquettes, green marble tabletops and wicker chairs and dramatic chandeliers.

I appreciate the bold colors of teal and green grounded with wood, wicker (synthetic), brick and cement and brightened with white paint.

Tres bien. Allez!

Tabletop Tuesday: Palm Limes

Tabletop Tuesday takes you to your favorite palm lined beach with this white and emerald green setting with brass candlestick holders and napkin ring anchored by a green goblet. Cut up the limes and put them in water, spritzer, vodka treat or a little something something extra that makes the summer sun more enjoyable.

 

Modern Monday: Velvet Daydreams

Modern Monday is a romantic interlude with dreamy green velvet sofas, ceiling to floor windows dressed in white pleated fabric, global artifacts and sculpture, a range of natural substrates and topped off with a dynamic geometric gold chandelier. I particularly like the green glass vases, wood box, concrete vase of grass on the side wood console and the frame art above it. The bar cart in the front left-hand side of the photograph repeats the metal and adds luminosity with the mirrors that echo the sunlight flowing through the windows.

Doesn’t this room make you want to lounge all afternoon with a stack of fashion magazines and juicy book? How would you use this space?
