An interesting question - I describe my style as modern shabby chic - I love mixing old & new, vintage with anything that I like because I like my home to be interesting - not restricted to any particular shop or era. Whenever I am our browsing, I like to buy things which I know will go with what I already have.
This also applies to my table settings which I love doing.
Summer settings should be light, bright & airy & so I did this for lunch with a friend. I started with a favourite vintage green milk glass set which is a perfect summer colour on my sideboard. A bunch of very scented sweet peas looks just right.
Luckily I have some interesting green glass ware which I decided to use on the table. This is my selection ....
The modern green footed bowl is often used at home & I used it with some delicate vintage glass salad servers because there were no children about ....
I love vintage flat ware / cutlery so I used a red & green setting for the two places. I am undecided which I prefer ... would you have chosen those two colours from the box?
On a visit to IKEA some time back I found these lovely plates & bowls & bought them on impulse because they are so lovely. I think they are a perfect summer set.
The place mats are modern with a beaded border.
Do you like mixing things up? What is your style?
Till next time, thanks for stopping by
