The table. Where your people, food and thoughtful design will come together. I personally think tables never look more inviting than at the end of the meal. Guests lean back in their chairs, linen napkins rest crumpled on the table and candles burn low. In this post, I’ll go over a few guidelines to follow to create simple, elegant table design every time.
For the first decade of my adult life, I lived in apartments where the guest room also doubled as the living room, office, or unorganized storage room, etc. During those years the best I had to offer was often a Costco air mattress and a sound machine. And yet, (past guests, feel free to set the record straight here) it didn’t keep us from having a blast hosting family and friends. At the end of the day, all people need to feel welcome in your home is your relaxed, welcoming vibe and the good food you put in their belly.
