Check out this gorgeous vintage tablescape…


In Nesting Newbies, a shiny new online mag – lifestyle, food, entertaining, decor, etc. – they featured interior designer Jennifer Rowland Clapp and the magic she whipped up in the form of this gorgeous dining room. She shows – and tells- how to take the chintzy stuff you probably already have in your basement and turn it to a modern, glam set up. First – lets get your attention…

pretty right?

Jennifer’s favorite shopping resource is Etsy, and one of her tips is that “contrast is key, and her rules for achieving it: ‘reuse, repurpose, and have fun- balance, clean, modern pieces with ornate, vintage items; and don’t overload the table’.”

What I love about this look is that your stuff doesn’t need to match – in fact, it is the variety which creates a modern spin on the look.

Like what you see? There’s tons more in their online 2010 issue. Go to the Nesting Newbies site to see it! The beautiful photos are by Natalie Wi, Allure West Studios
