Today officially marks the first day of summer – and if you’ve forgotten, we’re sure social media has reminded you by now ☀️☀️☀️. With summer comes al fresco weather, long weekends, backyard barbeques, and an overall mood boost that make it one of our favorite times to entertain. To celebrate the summer solstice, we’re sharing some of our favorite summer tabletop trends.
The Table Settings:
Neutrals: For a natural feel, use neutral tones like different greys, silvers – even wood.
Mixed Blues: Layer several summery shades and patterns of blue – from your plates and bowls to your flatware.
Black & White: The contrast of simple white plates and black flatware deliver an understated, modern feel while allowing the rest of your table to stand out.
Whether you’re a master chef or a takeout queen, the kitchen matters. After all, there’s a reason we (as a species), have coined the term “dream kitchen”. Because if our kitchen was amazing, we would cook every meal, host every holiday, and spend way more time in it. Well, until we have the dream house with the dream kitchen, we can just … dream.
Here are a few kitchens we would love to call our own.
We can’t help our excitement . . . outdoor dining season has officially arrived in NYC! And with the first 75° day comes the yard, patio, terrace, rooftop, weekend house prep. ‘Tis (finally) the season for al fresco relaxing and hosting. A boho vibe says “comfortable cool”, and what else can your really want in your outdoor oasis. Grab some cozy pillows and throws, cue the candlelight, and stack the plastic tumblers. Your summer self will thank you.
