Today I’m sharing a fall table idea that combines a big dose of geometry with a dash of natural beauty. The formula: borrow a few of your favorite geo decor items, add a handful of affordable fall accents, and say yes to a mix of warm and cool tones. Read on for photos and details…
My inspiration for the table comes from a variety of sources: the rich colors present in much of today’s food and product photography, brushstroke imagery from Ryan Hopkinson, and as always, the sleek look of ’80s-modern style. Above we see a mood board I created in preparation for the photo shoot. See mood boards from years past here.
I started with a grey table runner, which couldn’t have been more affordable. I love the look of mixed metallics, so I piled on a hefty dose of gold-toned decor.
The deep teal plates are from CB2. I topped each one with gold curly ribbon, which channels an ’80s vibe while adding a festive accent. The napkins (from Arro Home) were a gift from my good friend Jon.
Don’t forget the pumpkins! I chose white for the vignette:
The brass cubes usually hang on my dining room wall as sculptural art, but I couldn’t resist grabbing them for this fall table. You can order them in an affordable set of 3 from CB2. The black and marble geo tiles are the result of this easy DIY project I created in 2014. Bring on the marble contact paper:
Have fun stacking and arranging, adding in dashes of dried eucalyptus for another hint of teal. Go for a variety of levels, creating height where possible. I used brass cubes, but you can incorporate the metallic and/or geo decor of your choice. Check out our post on decorating with geo objects for even more ideas!
The gold flatware below is from Crate & Barrel. Note how it references the retro brass trend while adding contemporary style to the table:
Here are a few more photos from the shoot. I love how the food really pops against a grey backdrop. Who’s ready for dessert?!
Wishing you and yours a lovely week! I’ll be back Wednesday with a festive playlist that will add some sparkle on the coldest of days this fall and winter. XOXO, Kate
