Pretty party

How adorable is this housewarming party featured in Matchbook magazine. It is stylish and sophisticated but it is still comfortable and fun.  When you are entertaining I think it is good to show your decorating and design skills, but still make people feel as though they can enjoy themselves without wrecking your "perfect" table setting. I think this party is a perfect example. They have paired a rustic wooden bench with classic velvet chairs and a comfy throw. Then they have paired funky linen with sophisticated white dinnerware.  Although, I must admit the tall middle vases look good but are a bit much. Sometimes if you add to much height to the middle of the table I feel like it ruins the flow of conversation.

Love this space

Finally, after months and months I have finished work before the baby arrives. Now that the Christmas festivities have settled down I have some time to myself. Which means catching up on my favorite blogs and magazines. Today I am loving this simple clean neutral home designed by Julie Charbonneau featured in the February issue of House & Home.  I love that it is clutter free yet still cozy and warm.
