Gregorian Holiday Table Setting

We had a holiday fair event at our Newton Lower Falls location (go check it out if you haven't been yet!) and local designers created gorgeous displays as part of the event decor. This is the third in a series of posts featuring these beautifully styled spaces, each was too detailed for only a few photos to do them justice.

Gregory Gregorian, owner of Gregorian Oriental rugs, put together a sleek, modern table with elegant, baroque accents. Traditional silhouettes in pewter contrast with the bright, contemporary glazes of Jars Ceramics. Glassware from the Ultima Thule collection, a vintage Scandinavian design, and embellished Italian flatware demonstrate how pleasing and personal it can be to mix styles and brands. 

The Alessi Dressed flatware collection features an elegant embossed pattern on the back, making for a wonderful surprise when presented face up, or a detailed accent when face down.

Handmade in northern Italy, this steak knife set from Berti features a gorgeous, sleek design and excellent quality blades. A wonderful touch of luxury on this table.

We asked for a tablescape and Fernanda from Simplemente Blanco, an interior design studio that specializes in simplicity and balance (and of course, white!), designed us a cozy little world. There are so many beautiful touches here, and it's the accents I loved best in this design. The eggs in the spalted maple bowls, The marshmallows in the creamy porcelain espresso cups, the clean and harmonious blend of creams and whites against natural wood and stone. Pieces of this arrangement could be taken directly from life, making it so inviting and warm.

Observatory Boutique Holiday Display

We had a holiday fair event at our Newton Lower Falls location (go check it out if you haven't been yet!) and local designers created gorgeous displays as part of the event decor. This is the first in a series of posts featuring these beautifully styled spaces, each was too detailed for only a few photos to do them justice. 

I absolutely loved the tablescape and display created by local talented florist and stylist LauraJean Pecci at Observatory Boutique. Her design features a classically elegant base of white fluted porcelain from Royal Copenhagen with the rustic and organic accents I always associate with her style.

This table features Royal Copenhagen tableware, Sabre Djembe flatware, Match Pewter glassware and candle and serving accents, iittala Lempi glassware, and Libeco linen.

This design didn't stop with the table but extended to the walls and environment surrounding, pulling all into a unified whole. I loved the horn embellishments contrasted with the elegant white porcelain, the olive branches in the glasses echoing those same branches in the massive, luxurious floral centerpiece, the antique tray filled with sprouting bulbs, and the stunning wreath of grape vines accented with cedar and juniper.

Colorful Kettles from Le Creuset

A good kettle is a staple of your kitchen arsenal. With temperatures steadily dropping here in Cambridge, this is the perfect time to stay warm with a cup (or two!) of tea. One classic option is the Le Creuset 1.8 qt whistling tea kettles. They're made of carbon steel and finished with porcelain enamel.

Le Creuset 1.8 qt whistling tea kettles, pictured from front to back in stainless steel, Marseille, Cassis, Flame, Soleil, Palm, Carribean, and White. Also available in Cherry.

 Available in Le Creuset's vivid enamel color palette as well as a stainless steel finish. The traditional bell silhouette contrasts wonderfully with their bright modern colors. We love Soleil (yellow) for a brilliant pop of color on overcast mornings. This tea kettle is great for everyday use, a work horse that will last for many winters to come. 

Try a brightly glazed mug from the Jars Ceramics Tourron collection as a colorful companion!
