Sad to say but I wasn’t able to attend the World Market event 2 weeks ago as planned. Real life came knocking on the door and unfortunately my son came down with a stomach bug + 103 temp at THE. WORST. TIME. Yup, can you believe it?!
World Market Party VS. caring for my sick child? Hands down, my family comes first. Not attending was hard to swallow as I was super excited for this amazing opportunity because I truly adore the company + I was so looking forward to seeing friends that I haven’t been with in ages. But life throws you curveballs once in a while AND I chose what was most important.
No worries, I have pictures from the event to share + I had the chance to do a little shopping and chose to give my dining space a freshening up. Perfect timing as we are transitioning into Fall!
The new World Market in Chelsea evokes a chic industrial rustic aesthetic with bold color + engaging texture. The store is located at 18TH & 6TH, 620 6TH AVENUE in the heart NYC amongst many top design stores.
The sneak peek opening 2 weeks ago was filled with editors + designers + bloggers. Also the fun & fabulous Kelly Osborne was in attendance to kick off the festivities.
If you’re in the New York area, drop everything and get to this store! Well maybe not everything, but seriously this new space is not to be missed. The store is more furniture based (whereas their other stores have a mix of decor, jewelry, food, furniture, and more), but has lots of take & go items – pillows, dishes, lighting, etc. The rest of what you love can easily be ordered and shipped to your home!
For me, I LOVE a great lighting fixture, so when I saw their new lighting vignette, I almost went to heaven. They have really great hanging fixtures + lamps. So stylish AND affordable!
With all this goodness, I couldn’t hold myself back from bringing some World Market beauty into my home. Check out my spruced up dining space for Fall…
When decorating a table, it’s all about mixing the intense with the calm.
For this Fall dining table, I started with a bold, mixed-print tablecloth (there are lots of tablecloths to choose from at World Market) that has a detailed paisley pattern + a geometric, modern border. Atop I added a large mirror with a weathered edge as a base for the centerpiece and layered on a minimal amount of simpler elements – vase, small cutting board, oil bottle, cloth napkins.
A simpler centerpiece is perfect too for when the food comes… the main course + sides can easily be added amongst the surrounding decor.
Any opportunity I get, I decorate with natural elements. From the mantel to the tabletop, I love incorporating bits of nature through plants, flowers, and greenery. For this table, I chose two natural beauties. In the large, high vase (you always need varying heights when creating a table vignette), I clipped a few branches from a tree in my yard. So simple AND free! The branches remind me of a fig tree and since I don’t have one (insert big ole’ pout), the beautiful limbs from this tree will do.
Honestly though, the tall vase filled with branches makes the table!
Here is another view of the centerpiece looking at my raspberry colored china cabinet (still one of my favorite projects ever). I adore the fluidity and simplicity of the oversized vase looks against the striking + bold cabinet. A space comes together when their is a balance of bold and calm, pattern and solid.
Simple woven chargers are the perfect separation between the strong tablecloth and the pretty patterned plates. The simple cloth napkins atop the plates are the perfect organic layer.
Sometimes pattern + pattern just makes sense. And on this dining table there is no lack of pattern! From the pillows on the chairs to the tablecloth adorning the table to the plates the food will rest on, the eye will certainly not get board…
… Yet, there is an overall calmness and inviting nature that this Fall table evokes.
I’m so happy + content at how this seasonal table resulted. I wish it could stay like this all Fall. I have kiddos and the reality of it looking like this tomorrow is slim… “Mom, what’s all this stuff on the table”.
In the meantime, for the few dinner parties + occasions we will host over the coming months, I have a go-to set up. It’s easy + simple + sophisticated and is perfect for the Fall!
A step back view of the overall space from the kitchen, looking into the dining space, and the living room beyond…
