The art of finding

A transitional table setting with a Tuscan vibe

Summer is almost ending but warm weather is still lingering. Spending days in the outdoors for some might be the highlight of the year, but taking some affairs indoors is what many of us living in hight temperature areas do during most of the summer. Because of this I’m creating a transitional table setting in our dining room with both an end of summer vibe and perhaps an Italian fall feeling. 

Those Tuscany Days

I’ve always been a fan of Italian outdoor decor. And with this in mind I’ve found some amazing salad dishes at HomeGoods with beautiful Tuscan inspired prints. These images of lemons, autumn fruits, etc were my muse for this table setting.

To enhance the delicate prints of the salad plates I used some light emerald diner plates and added whitewash faux wood charger as a way of framing these pieces.

Atmosphere enhancers

Center pieces have the power to change a complete atmosphere over the table. One of the best and easiest ways to create a day-to-night setting is by incorporating candles. These can add that magical touch during the evening and become an accent piece during the day. For this table, I found at HomeGoods some heavy stone candle holders that had beautiful soft grays and brown tones on the bottom. These can held either tea lights or votive candles.

I also found at HomeGoods a beautiful golden metal lantern that brought in a distinctive look but still with a rustic vibe, into the center of the table.

Pops of color

Lemons can bring memories of freshly squeezed lemonade that many of us love during hot summer days. But also, these citric fruits were a mayor pice over the Tuscan inspired plates’s prints. At HomeGoods I was able to find some faux lemons which were perfect in size and texture. Their look and feel were incredible and I used them sparingly throughout the center of the table.

Green accents like some natural olive branches from our tree in the patio, eucalyptus wreaths for the back of some chairs and green linen fabric napkins tied up this simple transitional indoor table decor.

By mixing warm pieces with some cooler tones I was able to marry both summer ending with the being of my favorite season, fall! How are you planning on starting your fall home decor?
