Creating a beautiful spot in your home is no easy task. I feel myself caught between a longing for the perfect, glorious things that make a space not only beautiful but also speak of my style and personality and at the same time a desire to use what I love, though it may not be cohesive. I re-received a wonderful buffet that once was in my home. It travelled from Arizona to northern California, then
as my parents moved here near us, it came back into my home. I found a comfortable spot for it and, inspired by House Beautiful, created a tablescape that not only brings me a bit of home decor joy but I hope also is a joyful vignette to those passing by on our street. Aritchokes are, after all, quintesentially Californian and at the same time ever so stylish.
