For a casual breakfast tablescape, or a kid’s table, designer Sande Beck started with the brown basketweave casual chargers and layered it with green dishes and botanical melamine plates. The white linen placements work with a casual or dressy tablescape, and the woven placements can be easily wiped off. The Moscow Mule mugs are a fun vessel for drinking coffee or juice.
Create a retreat just like you would an interior room by starting with furnishings. Consider your style and budget, along with how you’ll likely use the space. If your retreat is a cherished space for reading and hanging out with family, include plenty of seating options. For a retreat that provides an escape for morning coffee, you might just need one seat and a spot to park your favorite mug. Include container gardens to give the space a touch of greenery and nature that will minister to you, body and soul. These pots sport a mix of annuals: dwarf purple fountain grass with ‘Sweet Caroline Light Green’ sweet potato vine and Intensia blueberry phlox, dark Vertigo purple fountain grass, and Blushing Princess sweet alyssum solo and with Supertunias Royal Velvet and Trailing Silver. A pot of Diamond Frost euphorbia adds a just-right blooming accent to the coffee table.
