TABLE MATES

When it comes to decor shopping, pretty place settings (and books, obviously) are my weakness. I just love a good tablescape and everything that comes along with it. The latest lookbook from Barneys has me drooling. They have created six amazing tablescapes that will have you rethinking your next dinner party. (I’ve been in love with these placemats for awhile now and seeing them in this lookbook has sealed the deal for me.) Setting a  gorgeous table is an art. There are so many different pieces to think about – linens, glassware, plates, vases, flatware. I love how Barneys incorporated so many different layers and textures (the key ingredients to a pretty table, in my opinion). Each place setting has a very different vibe than the next: the black-and-white one has a decidedly glam feel, while the one with the plaid napkin reminds me of a fancy summer picnic. (Note: I’m also so glad to have discovered these glass bowls. They’re $26 and would make for excellent catch-alls around my house.) If you weren’t already in the mood for a spring/summer soirée, you will be now.
