Gold flatware and linen napkins put a warm spin on the table setting below, while a brass bowl replaces the glass vase for the centerpiece. The white plates keep the look light and refreshing for summer, as does the minimalist look of the place setting. Placing the napkin on the dinner plate downplays the stark white hue while punctuating the teal appetizer dishes.
Modern dining rooms are increasingly being relegated to a small, designated corner of the kitchen or living area. The age of the expansive and lavish dining room is definitely behind us. Today’s dining rooms seem to place efficiency ahead of flowery aesthetics and it is simplicity that trumps extravagance. The advent of the social kitchen along with a greater urge to turn the open living area into a gathering space for family and friends has seen dining space take a turn towards rustic and natural decorating choices.
The brass bowl is a CB2 find, and you can get a similar look with this piece. Placing greenery in a bowl is a bit unexpected, and it keeps the centerpiece low and striking. You can even line the middle of your table with a trio of greenery-filled brass bowls.The linen napkins were a bargain buy at an outlet, but this season there are plenty of options to choose from. This World Market selection caught our eye, as did these gorgeous napkins from Etsy. The Emory Gold Flatware is from Crate & Barrel.
