Design: Urban Rustic

By Naomi Goodman of Enchanted Dream Weddings & Affairs.

I hope that you are all enjoying the weekend immensely, whether you are traveling or are staying in. These past few days have been remarkably warm and sunny, and certainly fun, with no work in the least, and included a little shopping and visiting, (I picked up some new black shorts and a quintessential striped top) a casual dinner of creamy curry, some planning, a movie, (the new Pirates of the Caribbean) gluten-free, homemade pancakes with fresh fruit, and of course, catching up with some blogs. (now that blogger is working)












Which leads me to discovering this beautiful photoshoot, as styled by my lovely friend Naomi Goodman. With careful attention to even the most minute of details, she has created a wonderful space of culinary delights and intriguing touch points of surprise —with layers of earthy tones and textures, and tasteful, elegant touches. I enjoy how she has used dramatic potted anemones as the centerpiece and their black centres as color inspiration which is mimicked in chic details such as ribbons, the circular shapes on stools, and the deepest points of moss. Perfect for grounding the table. And as you wander from the display cabinet to the mantlepiece, to the table, words such as scrumptious, bistro, ease, soft, natural, touchable, and memorable spring to mind...

  1. Sarah, hoping you are having a wonderful first day of summer! These images (as always) are just gorgeous, and so inspiring for me as I am finally changing the direction of my decor--turning my house near the beach more into a vacation home and going more casual--that dining room with farm house table and pretty distressed cabinet is so pretty and easy!
