I ordered the new Markham Roberts book last week and finally got some time to flip through it yesterday. It’s a fascinating study on traditional decorating with an edge- full of bold color and mixed patterns. One image, of the author/designer’s own upstate home, totally inspired me palette wise. Chartreuse and beige, baby! I thought why not make an unexpected Thanksgiving table out of it? No one said you have to use orange and red and turkeys on T-day! I wanted to incorporate gold, wood, color and some old school patterns together with modern touches to craft something really fun but formal enough for a family celebration.
Here’s the inspiration pic!
