Sure, orange for fall might not seem like a groundbreaking concept, but hear us out: The de-facto color of autumn doesn’t have to conjure images of pumpkins and crunchy leaves. Just ask Kira, who’s spun not one but two new takes on the hue for your autumnal entertaining.
A GRAPHIC LUNCH SCENE
As the days at home drone on, there’s no better reason to lay out a punchy table setting to inject a bit of spirit. And that doesn’t have to mean breaking out the entire wedding china service: Try selecting just a couple elements in coordinating bold colors for the most simple statement.
As for perfect coordination? Overrated. Instead of striving for perfect matches, pair tabletop items in similar color families but different hues and patterns for a look that’s fun, unique, and visually stimulating. Here, two versions of stripe pop against the printed tablecloth. A simple, linen napkin serves as a grounding neutral. And voilà: Lunch—and style—is served.
FESTIVE SUNDAY BRUNCH
Looking for something a bit more festive? Take a cue from design icon Josef Frank and festoon your table with an array of jewel tones. When you’re using bold, saturated colors, more is more—don’t worry about matching or clashing. For added texture, look to natural elements, like the raffia fringe on these round placemats and centerpieces of colorful fruits, like ripe persimmons.
Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or just want to dress up an everyday meal, tabletop is the perfect way to do that.
