Yesterday, was an exciting day . . . The Everyday Napkin was featured on interior design blog and "sourcebook", Remodelista! (I was pinching myself all day!) And I've fallen in love all over again with this beautiful dining table Justine Hand, Remodelista contributor, and I styled together for Mother's Day brunch . . . but who wouldn't want this every day?
Justine has a great sensibility for timeless pieces with natural beauty and character. I couldn't take my eyes off of this one particular find, an ivory pedestal bowl she received from her aunt still adorned with it's original manilla tag, distressed and weathered. The dishware and flatware you'll see in the post are from two of our favorite local shops: Lekker Home in Boston and Greentail Table in Newton, Mass. The glasses are Justine's and the cloth linen and cotton napkins . . . their ours!
Thank you Justine for your eye and seeing the beauty in our product and sharing it with the Remodelista community. I feel very lucky to be featured among the most sophisticated and timeless in design and to be a part of the amazing content of Remodelisa. These ladies are brilliant. I am over the moon.
My two favorite views from day . . .
Stack your napkins in "chunks" of color. You can create more depth through dense layers of color.
Don't be afraid of black with a soft palette. It adds just the right amount of sexy or handsome to your sweet tabletop.
Allow your napkins to curl, flop and be themselves. That's the beauty of linen and cotton, even a 6.5" napkin can have movement and that's all you really need.
Happy Mother's Day, Remodelista Mommas!
