Floral Tabletops That Inspire

With Spring comes the undeniable urge to entertain and take the party outdoors!

For me so much of the ocassion is about flowers and tabletop decor that transport your guests someplace special.

This new twist on a floral centerpiece, combined with gold rimmed crystal and  cascade of taper candles, creates a gorgeous and dramatic setting. And translates to a formal dinner or backyard BBQ! 


Thanks to @Calypsostbarth and @everylastdetailblog for sharing this inspirational concept!

Inspired Entryways

The entryway to a home can be the most magical space in the house, greeting you and setting the tone for everything to come. This design from Burnham Design (who I just started following on Instagram) is so perfectly elegant and serene and inviting, I want to move in!

This design also demonstrates the power of a table and a bookshelf for telling a story. They serve as a blank canvas on which you can layer elements that take the space far beyond the ordinary. In this case the way the designer clusters the vases in an over-the-top way I like to call “chunking it up”, adding dimension, volume and color. Combined with the recessed bookshelves that she treats  almost as an art gallery with a beautiful, monochromatic  mix of prints, books and art objects. Genius!
