Following a monochromatic scheme is an easy way to look chic, whether it comes to clothing or in this case, table setting. Jenni Epperson’s black and white table spread got our interior designer senses tingling. The coordination of elements gave the simple set-up a stately feel.
It’s a lesson on how being fancy is more about restraint and cohesion. Let’s break it down for you.
Breaking the solid black and white dinnerware with a striped one makes the look dimensional. It draws your eye immediately. We suggest these items to recreate it:
Mikasa Swirl Square Dinner Plate. Available at Bed, Bath, & Beyond.
Awning Stripe Black Plate by Marc Blackwell. Available online.
Habitat Bistro White Porcelain Bowl. Available at Bonifacio Global City.
Contrasting your prized laced tablecloth, bring out some black napkins to continue on with the theme.
Crate & Barrel Fete Black Cloth Napkin. Available at SM Makati.
Jenni went for large, stemmed glasses that adds varying heights to the set-up.
Cusinart Classic Collection Burgundy Glasses. Available at Rustan’s, Gateway Mall.
To add a twist to the monochromatic theme, don’t forget some flowers. You can go with a somber feel with violets that Jenni chose or go for your blooms of choice.
Tillandsias Centerpiece. Available at Lanai Manila.
