Tabletop Tuesday: Blue Ground

Tabletop Tuesday sets your place at the table with a harmonious connection of earth and sky. Brown and sky blue are two colors that timeless balance each other. Perhaps the brown reminds us of the ground and the blue the sky. Somewhere in between we exist.

The foundation of linens is laid with navy blue material with a vintage scarf, filled with fun geometric shapes and the brown and blue color story, as the runner. I chose organic shapes of dishware for this setting. The bottom blue plate is a perfect circle but the middle brown plate and blue bowl are not exact circles which makes them visually and texturally interesting. I chose a navy, pinstripe napkin with a brass napkin ring. The setting is finished with brown vintage glassware and vintage rosewood and brass utensils from Thailand.

Bon appétit with flair and style!

Modern Monday: Mid-Century Velvet Dining

Modern Monday begins the week dining at this Mid-century modern walnut table with curvaceous brown velvet chairs with brass frame and legs. The vintage chandelier repeats the metal color and shapes of the chairs and table.

Brown and blues are a complementary color combination that grounds and soothes your energy. The blue textured wallpaper adds more visual interest to the room. The silent rumbling of the framed, ocean photography offset by the abstract art in the hallway add to the story. The vintage, ethnic area rug repeats the blue and white in the wallpaper, baseboard, frame and opposite wall.

Repeat patterns, colors and shapes as you scale your furniture and art to your space. Although this area is small, it is big on style. Photo: Catherine Kwong.

Tabletop Tuesday – Grey, White + Purple

Tabletop Tuesday is a crowning achievement of grey and white with a splash of purple and yellow. This plate set alternates a series of materials and patterns on top of a fun quail and crown runner with stainless steel Mid-century modern salt and pepper shakers and a vintage plum glass.

Idea…wrap a ribbon around your silverware to add more patterns and to create something fun.

Modern Monday – Bedroom

Modern Monday seduces us with a glamorous master bedroom that combines transitional elements with Midcentury modern pieces with lots of stylish lines and luscious textiles. Of course the grandiose + elegant chandelier takes center stage, but give that sculpture in the left-hand corner its due too. Light, lines and bursts of subdued color make this room unforgettable.
