The brown color pallette is one that brings forward an elegance that also feels familiar and safe. The space is not intimidating, but rather seems like you’ve known it forever and when you add a dynamic rug into it, the room becomes lively! It’s easy for a white dining room to look elegant, but when it has hardwood floors it’s going to need a little help from a rug to feel softer and gentler. Elegance often means delicacy and vulnerability; allow your dining room to radiate both by picking a rug that isn’t boring, but retains a simplistic look.
The napkins were purchased from Arro Home (no longer available), but check out these, these and these for a similar look. You could even paint your own by free-handing a design with fabric paint for a more affordable solution!

Our dinner plates are a discontinued pattern from Crate & Barrel (learn more about the Claire pattern here). The teal appetizer plates come from CB2 and are a gloriously affordable $1.99 apiece! We love the idea of topping each plate with a special bite, such as round crackers covered in goat cheese and pink peppercorn. Our greenery was picked up at the local market, labeled “California filler” and sold for $3 a bunch!
