My home is going to be featured next month on a house walk here in Riverside,IL, so I have been so busy painting, rearranging things, and planning for the event. My home will be featured alongside other designers and architects that live in my town.
I am playing with how I want to "style"
my home for this event.
Here is how I plan to dress
my dining table...want it to feel
like I am hosting some guests.
I am going to add a little
pie under the cloche
on the day of
I have added some
vintage table linens,
utensils, and glassware
at one end.
I clipped off some sprigs from the
yard and added them
to a contemporary vase.
The oranges tie into the
colors in my home...I have all
and oranges through out.
To separate the clusters of accessories,
I added the wicker tray,
all with like items....greenery.
Here is a close up of the dining rug.
Later this evening, I took some
shots to see how things look with a
touch of candlelight and a
few apples under
the glass dome...always playing.
At the other end of the grouping,
the appetizer plates,
cream pitcher and bowel
all nestled in together.
I added a silver cake knife
found at an antique store.
The table linens are layered
for added interest.
I know it was a success when my son
asked if we were having company.
Now to work on the rest of the house...
It's all in the details!!!!
