elements of my thanksgiving table

I've started pulling out some 
inspiration for 
my Thanksgiving table.

  I want to go with lots of earth tones,
golds and white
this year,

and a few natural textures.

I'm starting with
my favorite Spode transferware 
plates for the season
and with these classic black and white 
Wedgwood "Liverpool Birds" bread plates.

I think they'll both look great set
 on the creamy white 
Wedgewood "Patrician" china.

What do you think?

new accessories from room & board

Room and Board has always been one of my favorite home furnishings stores, so I couldn’t wait to check out their new home accessories. It's that time of year once again when we all start to think about refreshing our homes for the holidays!  

They've added so many pretty home accents like lighting, pillows, decorative ceramics, mirrors and storage options.  Their designs simple and straightforward, with a little bit of a mid-century style to them.  

Almost 100% of their furnishings are made in America by skilled artists and craftsmen, and the quality is outstanding.  Here are some of my favorite picks from my visit to the Santa Ana showroom.    

Who doesn't need a great set of  nesting bowls?  The Good Bowls are created in Seattle and come in three color ways.  The slate blue, ochre, and charcoal set would go nicely with my kitchen.  These would also make a great gift, hint, hint!

A rich handmade charcoal bisque shade in two sexy shapes with walnut and brass trim make up these stunning Cloak Pendants. I am even in love with the braided cord detail that reminds me of an old-fashioned iron cord. 

Chevron takes on a little bit of a Moroccan feel in this velvet Mahal Pillow.  It comes in four colors, and the gold one is my pick!

Haze, Topaz and Tangerine are the deep, rich colors used in these handcrafted glass Banded Bowls that really make a statement on their own or grouped together.  

New colors of the sleek Shelter Magazine Stand are in.  I love the white and gold versions! 

These handmade Kori braided wool storage bins are perfect for holding surplus pillows, blankets, toys and even holiday gifts. 

Photographer Sharon Montrose’s intimate animal portraits look great grouped together on a wall as a simple but elegant photographic gallery. 

Every time I visit Room and Board, the Loft Round Mirror takes my breath away.  It is built shadow-box style out of solid curved wood.  It now comes in walnut, ebony, maple and cherry.  I think walnut would look perfect in my home! 

A little bit of glitz and glam is always perfect for the holidays, or any time of year! That’s why I love the Shimmer and Tagine Pillows.  They come in square or rectangle and in loads of colors.  My color picks are above.

The charming Pigeon Toe Tri-pod Bowls are handmade out of porcelain in Portland and then glazed on the interior for that fun pop of color.  Which one's your favorite?  

The elegant Silver Bowl and Vase are made of hand-blown glass and then silver leaf is applied by hand and that gives these pieces a little bit of a golden hue. These are one of a kind pieces that will become heirlooms for years to come!
