When dressing your table, weather it is be formal or informal, make it interesting looking. We like using different collections of things - this adds much interest. Missed matched silverware and plates can start up a fun dinner conversation. Maybe you have dinner plates that once where your mom's or grandma's, use them - why not? Mix them up with other plates you own.
Kelly Wearstler "Mulholland" is mixed with other items found at a local theft store. Matte gold cutlery and a mixture of glass stemware all adds to current "today" feel. Dinner plates, stemware and cutlery can all be found at Table Art.
Notice how MKandcompany Interior Design and Decoration went one step further and used a variety of mismatched chairs.
It's design for today's lifestyle.
