Thanksgiving Tablescapes: Modern Granola Glam

The inspiration room...

for today's darling is chic, modern, minimalist, and nature inspired. This darling is effortlessly elegant, with her basic foundation for style encompassing the realization that a simple handpicked fall leaf or a fresh cut log of wood for the fire serves as an accessory, artwork, and beauty enough to decorate her humble abode. The colors, patterns, textures, and magnificent wonders of the world around her are her muse. She relishes in the extraordinary of the ordinary and prefers a streamlined and paired down aesthetic to reflect her casual approach to life and to magnify and showcase the intricacies of the details surrounding her. She thrives on artfully mixing neutrals and, like the juxtaposition of the nature surrounding her modern space, isn't afraid to mix luscious textures and textiles to organically shape and form her style. Likewise, she is a firm believer that a dash of sparkle is the perfect compliment and just as magical as the storytelling rings of the trees.

Her table scape features natural textures and elements amped up with a sleek and sophisticated presentation. A nubby tweed with metallic threads sets the table background while handmade glass votives wrapped in glittery branches reflect light off of all the glimmer and gold and bounce an ethereal sparkle throughout the space. Guests seated in Eames chairs draped in (faux) sheepskin comfortably lounge at place settings marked by handmade terrariums. A mossy table runner sprinkled with glass apothecary "terrariums" and fauna continues the woodsy theme. Gold dahlia chargers add a hint of regal and flora to the scape and a wooden server plate and napkin rings adorned with gold leaf add a sense of refinement and elegance to the raw materials present. Twig inspired flatware and hand studded pumpkins and gourds marry man made with nature and harmoniously polish off the entire look by combining more metallics with the "natural state."
