Summer White

Today's table is using only two colors: white and brown.
It's simple and calming...perfect for these hot summer days.

Welcome to my home!

Hoping your summer is full of rest and relaxation!

I'm joining Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch for her Tablescape Thursday and Kathleen over at Cuisine Kathleen for her Let's Dish.
Drop by for loads of inspiration, won't you?

  1. I'm going to yak back about two posts in one here because I'm JUST seeing the gorgeous dining room post below. I love it more than I can say. Your chandelier is like what I ultimately want here. It's beautiful, and your butler's pantry is even more beautiful. I really and truly love this room!

    As to the table challenge, how in the world did you pull off making a sea scape so elegant? I love the white with sand color combination and now want to set a table like that just because. Mine would pale in comparison. I love it.

    (And I really love the house tour thing. I'm so glad you're doing it. )

  2. Sharlotte - love this tablescape! Brown is my favorite color and I do love all of the beach accessories (our beach condo is done in brown and blue!). Oh, to have a butler's pantry - I do not even care, if I do not have the butler - lol!! Great job on the table!!!

  3. Beautiful white tablescape with lovely dishes! I specially love the reticulated milk glass ones..gorgeous! The shell on the pedestal is my fav too, plus great centerpiece. Happy Let's Dish.

  4. Maybe we should follow each other...I just did you!

  5. Lovely! Simple and elegant! Love the beach touches. Thanks so much for taking the challenge!

  6. I love it! It is very natural, while being elegant at the same time. Wonderful! Jennifer

  7. Wow, love those depression glass plates. They are gorgeous, everytime I see them, it's always just one.....

    Love the creamy white next to the brown..good job!

  8. White is just al-RIGHT! I love it! ...and especially with the beachy items you have added! Beautiful!

  9. Gorgeous table!! Brown is my favorite color and I love all the touches of nature you included here!

  10. Hmmm - thought I commented....let's try one more time.

    Gorgeous table this week! Brown is my favorite color so I love seeing it used and I love the way you added the touches of nature to it.

  11. Sharlotte,
    This is a stunning brown & white tablescape, dear one!
    I was quite intriqued with the tablecloth arrangement
    allowing the gorgeous hues of the wood to show through.
    The use of shells adds great texture to your tablescape!
    Have you done a tutorial on your homemade florals?
    I would love to be able to reproduce these in my own home.
    Truly, I was greatly inspired by this elegantly staged tablescape!
    Thank you for sharing!!!

  12. Gorgeous table...I love beachy feel...and the brown and white combo.
    I have those same banana leaf placemats...I should use them more often!
    Have a wonderful week, Sharlotte...

  13. Sharlotte, This is so pretty. I like your shades of brown and white and your shell centerpiece is just perfect. Love the mix of clam shell and starfish. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your home, and I'm your newest follower.
