Tablecloth Tip

Conde Nast Living

I just picked up the Condé Nast Living Outdoor Style issue. There are lots of enviable gardens and pools pictured, but my favorite bit is this alfresco table at photographer Oberto Gili’s Italian farm. The best styling tip is the gorgeous piece of fabric layered over a simple white cloth.

I’ve collected many stunning remnants that are not large enough to cover my table, and this would be a clever way to use them.

  • Great idea. I had a special closet built near my dining room to house all my table linens. I change my table out all the time.

  • Lovely! I had some vintage fabrics that I couldn’t find a use for so I made them into pillows for a window bench in my home. I wish I had though to do this instead. That way, I could switch it out more often.

  • I always think that the table cloth really does help set the tone for the evening, whether you want something elegant or more relaxed. This is a great tip thanks 🙂 http://madelienerose.com/
