It's All About the Textures

My table is simple, a relaxing one after the busy, busy holidays.
I wanted something calming, beachy is always good.
As things were coming together, it was the different textures that kept popping up.
So, this table is all about the texturing (is that a word?)

The place mats kept things casual...the capiz chargers brought in the shiny and beachy feel.
Add the carved plates and everything was set.

Vintage, mix-matched flatware makes me feel like things aren't so fussy
and the Tiger Cowrie seashell napkin rings add yet another dimension.

The stemware was simple...

...and the centerpiece was a rustic box loaded with treasures from the sea.

Add a jute wrapped bottle, an old shutter, and we were almost finished.

With just a bit of color and a few extra special shells,
I was feeling much more relaxed.

  1. I do believe your "texturing" looks great! Looks great for your Winter table... Have a great week. Blessings!

  2. A beach in winter is one of my favorite spots, actually. I do not like the beach in the cold, but here in Georgia (as I'm sure in Texas), we can enjoy the beach as a haven and comfort zone in the winter. Your beautiful table makes me want to do exactly that.

    Loved that linen from the napkin next to all the soothing neutrals most of all.

  3. Love the textures!
