If you are like me, most of your entertaining is not formal, but you still want it to be an experience for your guests. A beautiful kitchen eating area, and the right table setting and serving pieces are the key.
This kitchen area is one of my favorite spaces I’ve designed. Don’t you want to sit here?! The core elements are a beautiful table and a very elegant wool carpet to define the area. Check out the pinstripes on the carpet. This is a very special artisan product that I just love. The combination of chairs and benches feels comfortable and interesting.The berry upholstery on the chairs brightens everything up and makes people happy! The light fixture is simple, elegant, and impactful. Gorgeous window treatments add luxury, light control, and privacy. Original oil paintings are custom framed and grouped together to create interest. The perfect backdrop for a casual fete.
Below, we take this lovely space and get more granular on how you can set a table for a relaxed crowd of friends. Thursday night dinner, Sunday brunch, mom and dad in town, calling the neighbors over impromptu. You get the vibe, right?! Who are you most likely to entertain at your kitchen table?
