House Beautiful March 2016


House Beautiful asked me to set a table for their new march issue, of course i obliged and set a table for a casual california lunch.

the lunch is set in a clients dining room clad in iksel wallpaper. there is a bit of a moroccan theme and of course a california mood…. i pulled out my blue and white batik linens, my iznik plates and bowls (none of them match, all from different places, the eclectic mix makes the table more fun), and cobalt glasses, layered in rattan placemats and candle holders, then brightened the table with bright red dahlias and bowls of mandarines.

thank you house beautiful for coming over- lunch is served and it’s going to be not only beautiful, but delicious!

the march issue of house beautiful is on stands now. thank you to my team and thank you to best photographer in the world amy neunsinger.
