I like bold colors. They add excitement to elegant table decor. But it’s only recently that I realized I could pair them with black and white patterns.
When I’m working on a client event that requires rentals — plates, linen, glasses, etc. — I like to head over to my favorite rental company warehouse and try different combinations. My sales rep knows how I work by now. She brings me some table linen I pre-slected, then leaves me alone in the room with their entire collection. And I start putting things together. Does this plate work with this linen? How does the weight of the glass feel? It takes a while, but it’s a fun creative process and it always gives me ideas I would never have had by just looking at pictures on a screen.
And that’s how I discovered that black and white patters work with bold and bright colors. What do you think?
