As we approach 2011, it is always a time to reflect on the year and see what I want to change for the New Year. I decided that I am going to focus on my house this year, which includes making it a fun space to entertain. I am starting out with my kitchen and dining room as the launching point for all of my simple renovations. Besides adding a fresh coat of paint to my walls, I am going to add lots of color to my table and living spaces with beautiful plates, vases, and candleholders. I’ve been looking at formal dinnerware at Mikasa since they have a plethora of bright, yet classic home accents that are going to fit perfectly in my home.
Since the focal point in my dining area is a large charcoal drawing of The Gates in Central Park by Christo and Jean-Claude, I have the opportunity to incorporate a touch of orange into my table setting. I am thinking of doing a place setting similar to the Circle Chic Orange on the website. I think it will be a simple yet, classy way to punch up color on my dark walnut table. Another collection on the Mikasa site is the Rockswirl by Abby Modell. I am going to scoop up a few of the colored vases and bowls to compliment the Circle Chic Orange place settings. By adding some cool blues or serene greens, it will make my next dinner party festive and warm.
