Tuscan Inspired Tablescape

My inspiration for this table setting came from yardage of a beautiful Italian furnishing fabric that I found in the closet. The previous owners who had lived in Italy left it behind. I have plans to make pillows out of it someday. But for today, it is a "tablecloth."

Designed by Enrico Perroni, there was just enough fabric to cover the table.
I love all the oranges and yellows in this stylized print.

The print also reminds me of Tuscany, which is probably where the fabric was purchased.

The yellow lattice patterned dinner plates work perfectly with the print. The Portuguese majolica salad plates pick up the green rim.

I noticed the colors in the fabric were even repeated in my striped drapes!

Outside, looking in.

Inside, looking out.

The light is fading....time to light the candles.

I've been thinking of Tuscany a lot lately.
