dark table setting ∙ bright sunlight in the home studio

with the first rays of the sun in February, I decided to make a dark table setting to play with the contrast of bright light shining in my home studio. a perfect table setting for a theme event. I wanted to use the natural light in combination with natural elements and colors: an earthly table - with aesthetic details.

I used a thin rope that I stretched around the center of the plate. an easy and original manner to place your cutlery in your setting. just put them under or between the rope.

the black plate, cup and vases represent dark sand. they are the base of this table. I added thyme to the setting, roughly scattered to create a scent to the table. this to make the experience complete. some twigs are aesthetically placed in a glass lid or on the rope of the black plate to show you the more chic manner of adding herbs to a table. it’s all in the details!

the white thistles also represent this very earthly vibe. thistles are wild flowers and remind me a lot of my childhood.

the bread is not cut and wrapped in white paper to present it rough but elegant. I love to tear bread while eating so that’s perfect in this setting. if you add some butter and salt to the table, your guests can enjoy this bread with it and the thyme. finish with some grey or soft tones like this grey tablecloth and stone polished cutlery. serve grilled vegetables or good meat and put everything on the table: oven plate with vegetables, casserole with meat, bowls with potatoes… make a true earthly and authentic dining experience.
