gray. gris. grey

This fall I am very much into greys.  From my wardrobe to entertaining, I really like it’s neutrality and elegance, and get great results with a table setting or fashion look when I keep it monochromatic with a mix of shades, layers and texture.  I am even currently working on an invitation design for a client on a textured grey paper and different grey ink treatment which I hope to share with you next week.

Below is my inspiration for a fête | dinner party which was prompted by this tone-on tone grey fashion look.

 

1 | this matte silver almoco flatware is a subtle spin on everyday flatware and currently on sale!
2 | these Libeco Home linen napkins are made in Belgium and I can speak to the solid linen version pictured.  they are amazing quality, wash well and do not need to be ironed {you just hang them to dry and they are super soft}.  I have them in varying shades of grey and purple.  They look beautiful on a table in varying shades, you can see an example here on my Easter table from earlier this year.
grey twill two-tone napkin | solid steel grey linen napkin | light oyster linen napkin
3 | This Jl Coquet platinum hemisphere plate made in France is such a beautiful basic with a well done textured rim detail.
4 | Deborah Rhodes braided placemat via Barney’s NY.
5 | This Kim Seybert croco glass via Bliss Home and Design, in a silver shade would compliment the whole setting really well.

For a centerpiece, I would move away from the grey on grey on grey and add a vase full of deep purple ranunculus for the perfect pop to your beautifully styled and textured table.

Cheers!
