A couple of months ago, DC Modern Luxury magazine invited us to design a tablescape and lounge for their section on holiday gatherings– to say we were excited would be the understatement of 2019! We’re naturally drawn to bright colors, and since NYE is a festive occasion, we wanted to incorporate lots of vibrant hues into this fun tablescape. We used our Kalorama Black Table and Penn Bentwood Chairs to anchor this set-up, and layered our Tangiers and Finn rugs underneath to give the space at AutoShop a cozy, intimate feel!
We also thought a lot about NYE rituals when planning everything out. Since eating 12 grapes is considered a lucky New Year’s Eve tradition, we decided to incorporate them, as well as colorful citrus! When we pitched the idea to Holley of She Loves Me, she came up with the idea of a “fruitful new year” and things kind of snowballed from there!
