Maybe because the new apartment has a lovely courtyard, or maybe because in Chicago we truly savor warm, summer days, but I've got al fresco dining on the mind! Nothing reminds me to slow down and be thankful like sitting outside, enjoying delicious food and wine, and watching the sunset between good conversation and laughter with friends and family. When I need a little tabletop inspiration, I turn to these three very talented ladies who bring style and beauty to everything they touch!
I love Sharon's use of a hosta leaf for a placemat! What a creative idea. Carissa's tabletop got my attention for the artichoke centerpieces and mismatched chairs. The simple color palette of green and white in Chelsea's design was love at first sight for me. What a statement those two colors make! Each of these beautiful designs remind me to make the most of summer while it lasts because soon we'll be trading in the long, warm days for shorter, cooler ones.
And speaking of which, I'm so excited to announce tomorrow's guest, the lovely Anne Sage of The City Sage, for our fourth and final installment of, Fall: Get Ready / Get the Look. Hope to see you tomorrow - you won't want to miss it!
