Table decor is all about mixing and matching to create a unique look for you. – Pomegranate Inc.
Janet Brown Interiors will host its Annual Linens Sale February 4th through March 4th. We invite you to take advantage of storewide savings and add some color to your home. When setting your table, draw inspiration from hues in the room. Pick a color from a dinner plate or a painting on the wall and use a similar shade napkin or tablecloth. Mix and match napkins, placemats and tablecloths to create a layered look. Napkin rings serve as jewelry and can tie a look together – literally. Take a peek . . .

Toronto-based Colette van den Thillart, who works for famed British decorator Nicky Haslam, recently told The Wall Street Journal, “Times have been tough, and we’re all looking for reprieve. I’m seeing that the pendulum is swinging to more layering, more complexity, more joy, more whimsicality [in table settings].”

“A Beautiful Celebration” by Sferra. ” ‘Bolero’ makes any table setting a beautiful celebration. Inspired by Damien Hirst’s dot paintings, we chose to ‘paint’ our table with two different color palettes: muted ‘Beach Glass’ or the more brightly hued ‘Garden.’ Our fine European-woven ‘Oyster’ colored linen is printed with a joyful spray of confetti-like dots in colors that marry back to our solid-color ‘Festival’ linens, so it’s easy to mix-and-match with our other linens. Plus, we offer ‘Bolero’ in runners as well as placemats, dinner and cocktail napkins, to festoon tabletops or buffets with a delightful cascade of pretty colors. All finished with our classic hemstitched detail around flange borders and expertly sewn mitered corners. Set your special occasion tables in style. Fabric: 100% European-woven linen.” Photo via Sferra’s website. [Sferra linens offered by Janet Brown Interiors.]

“Adding a whimsical touch to a springtime tablescape is as easy as scooping up store-bought Easter basket staples and making a thoughtful arrangement. Handfuls of candy eggs and paper grass — placed just so — look like a bird’s nest when perched atop each guest’s plate. For an organic feel, we chose materials with natural tones, which will mesh seamlessly with linens in any color.” [Janet Brown Interiors sells robin’s eggs.] “Easter Nest Table Setting,” Martha Stewart.
