Tablescape Thursday Sept. 23, 2010

Welcome to Table scape Thursday on the breakfast bar . . . Today I wanted to see what elements I could pull together to make the breakfast bar in our apartment look a little more pulled together. So, what do you think?

I used most of the same pieces you've seen before. The blue plates, the red soup crocks which are actually small fondue pots. And the star glasses and flatware. And I moved the lamp that I had on the dining table last week. It really cozy ups this area.

I reused the blue glass candle holders from pier one. And the kind of fancy brown and rusty looking ones too.

I added a fall wall hanging to the wall to cozy things up a bit. Right in the very center of the bar is a pottery barn tray that was the inspiration. It is hard to see but it is red with a gold chineese design.

I love to incorporate different textures. And I love to use different themes elegant or fancy, primitive or homespun. I love combining different themes. The place mats are some kind of shiny fabric with some embroidery on them and little gold beads on the corners. The napkins add texture and a fallish theme. They are actually just a piece of upholstery fabric.

And for one more texture or theme I left the Cowboy rustic kind of Mexican theme bar stools.

I love that you came by to see my eclectic kind of decorating. I hope you enjoy the visit. Come back soon.

I love the red and blue and gold together, and that placemat is lovely! The wall hanging adds to the warm feel, too.
