We’re giving credit where credit is due: To our favorite Pinterest boards that inspired this light and colorful table

62 ho would think that a color palette typically reserved for baby showers could result in a stylish table for a summer lunch? We didn’t come up with it, but on Pinterest surely did. For our table, we turned to the digital pinboard for inspiration—from the unexpected color scheme to the refreshing menu.

The table we found on Pinterest used more saturated hues in its light blue and shocking pink scheme, but we toned it down for summer ease. Sky blue table runners embellished with ivory leather stripes drape over the stark white furniture. Toilet napkins, vintage milk glass tumblers and salad plates, and textured glass service plates repeat the hue

Raspberry accents come into occasional play. Linen are embroidered with a metallic Moorish geometric motif, while peonies bloom atop cake stands and are randomly strewn among the place settings. Soup bowls adorned with a spirited floral motif tie the palette together.

The light menu consists of more of our favorite pins—colorful fruit skewers, tasty scallop-and-grapefruit salad, and refreshing strawberry lemonade.


When in doubt, buy everything in white. This no-color hue is uplifting and the perfect partner for bright accents. Ceramic candlesticks, pedestals, and compotes . Faux flowers are from Natural Decorations, Inc.

It’s the Details

Flatware Invest in flatware that is not all metal, perfect for use in casual settings. Rosanna’s resin-handled “Napoleon” flatware comes in 13 colors, but we like the versatility of pearlized white.

Tassels For a table with a soft, feminine vibe, use ribbons and trims that can be transformed into interesting accoutrements like these teaseled for napkins from Samuel & Sons. “Siena Toilet” linen is stitched into napkins, pink embroidered “Arena” fabric and “Cirrus” leather-striped linen into table runners.

Layering Mixing old and new reflects how design trends and palettes reappear decades later. New “Lina” floral rice bowls and textured glass chargers from Villeroy & Boch look like they were made to partner with vintage milk glass and etched wineglasses from Replacements.

Nature Take advantage of nature’s bounty all year round. Pine-cone may be most commonly used during year-end holidays, but spray-painted white, they add graphic texture to a summer table as place-card holder

Southern Hospitality


Ask almost anyone in Savannah where to go for the best down-home baked goods and sweet treats, and you’ll get the same answer: Back in the Day Bakery. A little bit retro and a little bit modern-day the charming bakery is owned by the husband-and-wife team of Griffith and Cheryl Day. We asked Cheryl to share a cup of coffee, a cupcake, and a tour of her adopted hometown.


I am obsessed with beautiful textiles, and this fabric parlor is the real deal. Even if you can’t sew a stitch, you will find inspiration galore looking through the trimmings and notions. It has fun treasures like snap bags and pillows made from beautiful remnant fabrics like Liberty of London. I love buying vintage tulle and other trimmings for wrapping the perfect gift.

Alex Raskin

Antiquing at Alex , located in one of Savannah’s largest historical homes, is like going on a free tour of the city. You can get a history lesson while you shop! A collection of chairs, , dining tables, architectural fragments, mirrors, rugs, and so much more fills floor after floor of this grand mansion. The peeling paint and plaster are no charge and make you feel a little bit like Scarlet O’Hara.

Paris Market and Brocante

It is such a joy to shop through all of the beautiful treasures that fill every nook and cranny of this two-story piece of heaven. You feel transported to another place and time as soon as you step through the door. Something new, fresh, and exciting is around every corner. There’s also a lovely cafe where you can enjoy a treat, hot chocolate. And don’t miss the downstairs level.

I am currently obsessed with the vintage dish collections!

Green Truck Pub

This is a neighborhood hangout and one of my favorite places to meet friends after work. There’s a little something for everyone on the menu—including salads and veggie sandwiches—but I go for the burgers cooked to order from local grass-fed beef. All of the condiments are made in-house. Try the fries with ranch dressing. Yum!

This light and airy space is a ray of sunshine right in the middle of downtown Savannah. Filled with colorful fabrics, hard-to-find notions, and sewing tools, it also has a wonderful collection of crafts—including vintage-style aprons—made by local artisans. These girls really know their stuff, too, so be sure to ask about their sewing classes— basic to advanced garment construction, quilting, and even fun crafts workshops. (2 East Liberty, 912/236-1122)

Mrs. Wilkes

Be prepared to wait in line for one of the city’s most famous food landmarks. It is a true Savannah experience! Eat at long tables with friends and strangers in the downstairs dining room of Mrs. Wilkes’ boardinghouse. The platters of home-style Southern cooking— black-eyed peas to mac and cheese—are served family-style. A recent notable visitor was President Barack Obama.

Like an urban beehive, this sweet shop has raw honeycomb, wildflower honey, orange blossom honey, cheese honey, beeswax hand cream—the options are limitless. These folks are truly passionate about honey. (104 West Broughton Street, savannah

The Old Pink House

I feel as if I’ve landed in a movie (think Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil) when I walk down the stairs of this famous mansion and hear the piano player singing old standards. Be prepared to dine by candlelight from the same delicious menu as the fancier upstairs restaurant, but in a casual Savannah-style atmosphere. Be sure to treat yourself to an elderflower cocktail. (29 Abercorn Street, tangled up in blue and white Interior designer Anna Burke shows off her penchant for blue and white in a traditional-with-a-twist setting honoring the classic scheme

Maybe it’s the allusion to clear blue skies behind billowy cotton clouds, but there’s something universally appealing about the classic color combo of blue and white.

The heavenly pairing transcends time and place—looking smart whether Chinese Kangxi, Dutch delft, or English Wedgwood; whether gingham dress, striped shirt, or bed sheet.

“I grew up with a blue-and-white color scheme,” says designer Anna Burke (who created the setting here), “but my own take is to include different shades of blues—just look at the painting.”

“Almost every culture has a tradition of blue and white,” says Caroline Roehm, author of A Passion for Blue and White, who leans toward a greenish-blue shade (especially “Oval Room Blue” by Farrow & Ball) and a matte, chalky white when composing interiors.

Roehm credits her Midwestern grandmother for turning her on to the color combo. “I remember my grandmother’s blue-and-white bed canopy, and she gave me a miniature Blue Willow tea set. I still keep paper clips in one of the bowls.”

Her mentor and former boss, Oscar de la Renta, further fueled her passion for blue and white back in the 1970s. “I couldn’t afford the French fabrics I wanted,” she remembers, “so I covered chairs and walls in the cotton sheets Oscar designed for Cannon.”

Like Burke loves blue-and-white porcelain. Her mix includes lamps by Bunny Williams. “It’s a fresh take on Chinese pottery, don’t you think?” she says.

Anna Barker’s Picks:

“Island Raffia” wallpaper, Phillip Jeffries “Hanna” sofa, Only Studio “Log” side tables, Phillips Collection “ Glow” painting, Julie Combat “Brush Stroke” lamps, Bunny Williams Home “Jacques” wall brackets, Ballard Designs “Blue Blossoms” pillows, Annsliee on Etsy “Metal mark” butterfly, Evolution Store Assorted pottery, Frances Palmer Pottery

10 new traditionals

There is nothing quite like watching individuals do what they were born to do. That’s why it gives us such pleasure to announce our annual list of emerging young designers with backgrounds as varied as their aesthetics.

Consider Summer advice to do at least one thing your mother wouldn’t, Heather Garrets mantra that nothing made by man is as beautiful as that found in nature, or Katie Lyons edict that every room should have pieces that give it and soul. We loved hearing Andrew view of collaboration between designer and client—that his calling is to listen intently, mix his clients’ desires with his own epiphanies, and give them spaces that reflect the best versions of themselves.

Whether they were born on a Louisiana bayou or in London—whether they gained their experience redecorating Barbie mansions or browsing through Sotheby’s catalogs—we are deeply impressed by the mix of intuition, education, passion, and sheer talent possessed by our own group of 10.
