Sharing my top 5 Tablescape Trends

Sharing my top 5 Tablescape Trends

BOHO CHIC  -  The traditional Indian wood block printed tablecloths that we saw last spring and summer, take on a more sophisticated design approach this season.  You will see florals reminiscent of English chintz's printed on cotton and linen.  One of my favorite textile designer that has elevated the aesthetic of wood block printing is @dascoli_.  Check them out!

CASUAL ELEGANCE  - By all means set the table, but throw away the formality.  Switch out your fine porcelain place settings for more rustic earthenware.  Use colored glasses instead of the fine crystal stems. Use votives instead of the silver candlesticks.  Create small, loose groupings of flowers, and use bud vases in alternating heights.   Do use a beautiful tablecloth and cloth napkins.  Throw out formality, but not table manners!

WORLD TRAVELER  - After a year of no travel and not sure when we will be able to safely and freely immerse ourselves

in other cultures, we will continue to fill our wanderlust in the way we live in our homes.   Artisinal and regional designs, woven baskets, rattan everywhere, hand crafted pottery, and a well executed menu will transport the starved globe trotter to exotic destinations.

SOPHISTICATED TRIBAL  - Right on the heels of our World Traveler trend is the Sophisticated Tribal.  Taking its design cue from color saturated textiles and Berber carpets found in the markets of Marrakesh, Turkey  or those of the famous souks of Egypt.  Inspiration for this tablescapes can be found in @cabanamagazine and also from @les_ottomons

THE REGENCY PERIOD  - If you have not seen the latest Netflix hit, Bridgerton, then get to it immediately!  This is one of my favorite periods in history.  You can expect the trend to directly affect the way we set the table.   Empty the cuberts, polish the silver and iron the linen, because this table is about to be served. @secretofahostess


I hope these have inspired you to set the table.  Let me hear from you and share pics of your table with me by tagging
