Nine Years of Textiles, Art History, Gardens, and a Little Mental Traveling with Courtney Barnes


DBD 2007 Wrap-Up

This will sound like I'm fawning over Margaret Russell, but if I'm being honest I have to say her tent and tables were my favorite at Dining By Design 2007. It's a very subjective reaction -- I'm a big fan of those Isnik-inspired fabrics from Mehmet and Dimonah Iskel. And I think Paul Ludick's contemporary blue metal tables keep the vignette fresh. If I were throwing a big budget bash, Russell's Moroccan fantasy is something I would love to duplicate.

Below, I thought you might be interested in seeing the Iskel's Paris kitchen from Elle Decor, December 2006.

BTW: DBD heads to Chicago November 1-3.

It looks like she did do a wonderful job, and I love her choice of fabrics. And of course you know I love a chic tent!

I love the look of Margaret Russell's tent also, Courtney. Something very unique and innovative, yet classic at the same time. Those fabrics are so exotic and charming!
