Add an element of surprise to your table setting with charming party favors guests can take with them. Here, vintage pillar candle holders were repurposed as vessels to hold personalized black glass tree ornaments.
This classic transitional kitchen features a marble-topped square island, above which hangs an ornate black metal chandelier holding pillar candles. Green subway tile offsets the kitchen's crisp white cabinetry, creating a timless look.
Black-framed chairs mimic the dark trim of the windows and sliding door, creating a cohesive look in this updated midcentury modern dining room. The curved lines of the dramatic light fixture and funky candle holders help soften these heavy lines.
A contemporary black console table features an assortment of accessories, including a white lamp, gold candle holders and a metallic vase. A small tray offers a place to keep smaller accessories neatly stowed away. Underneath the table, an X-base stool with striped throw can be pulled out for additional seating.
Designer Vanessa DeLeon used plush fabrics and deep gray accent pieces to put an elegant spin on this complete home remodel. The eclectic teal and black dining room features an over-dyed turquoise rug from Creative Touch in Secaucus, N.J., while the table hails from Brooklyn-based artisan woodworker Palo Samko. The neutral walls are complemented by a faux-painted black and gray ceiling and black leather chairs around a rustic hardwood dining table with mismatched candle holders and two brass pendant lights.
Celebrate the start of spring with an inviting nature-inspired tablescape. "A simple blossom-themed wrapping paper is the inspiration for this table setting to welcome spring. A variety of candles and a pedestal holding an egg-filled bowl add to the fresh feel of the table," Katrina Giles of Seaside Interiors says. For a subtle contrast and touch of drama, black place mats are added beneath simple aqua dishes.
