Here are my 12 tablecloth ideas.
A few weeks ago, I received an email from Los Angeles-based interior design firm DISC Interiors about a well edited home they had just completed.

Today I’m covering an incredible Manhattan townhouse dining room. Created by legendary interior designer Sheila Bridges, this dining room is expertly designed! The home is extremely luxe and refined in style. The dining room stood out to me because of its unique design. The mix of colors, styles, and furniture creates a completely unique space. Instead of just showing you the dining room – I paired fall dresses to wear to a gathering at this home. Whether brunch, a long afternoon lunch, or a formal dinner these are the perfect dresses to wear!
One thing I love posting about is celebrity home tours. When I ran across a tour of Liv Tyler’s West Village Townhouse I knew I had to cover it! A look inside Liv Tyler’s whimsical and beautifully designed townhouse! This stunning townhouse was entirely redone and was a historical renovation. They did an amazing job at adding custom molding, woods floors, pocket doors and more! This house tour is so good that it inspired two other post ideas that are now on my list!
