Perhaps you’re starting your home from scratch, choosing your first place setting, the one that fits your style and budget. You’ll know it when you see it.
My home is not new, but perhaps you can say there’s a few “scratches.” Some place settings are ancient history; broken, donated or forgotten. Remnants of other settings live on: they bring good memories and enjoyed/suffered years of use. I keep myself in check when my pulse races upon discovering a new tableware pattern.
“Will it work with what I already have,” I wonder…
You never know when the dinner for 6 becomes a party for 9! Mixing up place settings is one way to stretch the numbers, and it creates an interesting tabletop. “Swirl,” as I featured last week, is a versatile tableware line from Enza Fasano is a perfect addition to your cupboard. As you can see, it works seamless with Enza’s “Coral” line.
Purple is a trending home decor color lately. I tried mixing “Swirl” with a touch of “Carnavale” and a cup of “Splash” (quite literally).
And I finally brought in some of the starter plates I picked up eons ago from Jerba, an island in the Mediterranean, off the Tunisia coast. A much more ethnic vibe…
It was fun playing around in the showroom and now with the glassware from IVV, plus runners from Busatti, this game could go on endlessly. Can’t wait for our next photo session!
