Halloween Entertaining!

Oct 12, 2016 10:25:13 AM

Volterra Nero

Halloween is the kick-off for Fall Entertaining! But lets face it, there are not a lot of options out there for setting a beautiful table for Halloween but we have you covered!  Our Volterra Nero is stunning year long but for a Halloween dinner party it makes an incredible statement.  Its ethereal black swirls are almost magical!

We also love our Giuletta mixed with Finezza Grey!  Again, such a beautiful combination anytime of year but add in Vetro Silver and other touches to create a haunted Victorian table.

Giuletta and Finezza

Don't forget to add ambiance like our pewter candelabras.

Seance anyone?

Another favorite is our Volterra Collection mixed with our Black Scavo Charger.  Like its family member Volterra Nero, it too has an ethereal effect, except this time we think about foggy nights, ghosts and cobwebs!

Pair with these spider napkin rings!

Of course keeping it traditional is always classic.  Rust Chargers with white dinnerware like our Bella Bianca or Tuscan mixed with pumpkins sets a beautiful harvest table!

The fall season is upon us!  Time to start transitioning our wardrobes and homes to a fall feeling.  Recently French Style Magazine featured one of our favorite bloggers, Courtney from French Country Cottage, in their Fall issue.

In the issue Courtney talks about decorating for fall especially with floral designs for your table, door (think gorgeous wreaths) and garlands for any surface.

We were so pleased that she used our Bella Bianca Dinnerware to grace the table.  It goes to show that white dinnerware works for all seasons and helps to create a fresh look for a fall table.

Here are our favorite pieces for freshening up your home!

Making a Splash in the Hamptons!

Aug 11, 2016 2:39:54 PM

Going on now is the Traditional Home Magazine, Hampton Designer Showhouse.  This is the sixteenth year they have sponsored a showhouse in the Hamptons and this year is as impressive as ever!  The 10,000 square foot house was impeccably designed throughout by top design talent!  

Hampton Showhouse 2016                                                                                                                                      Image: Rio Hamilton.com

We were placed in the showhouse through our account English Country and Antiques located in Bridgehampton, NY.  Items were chosen for the kitchen which included the breakfast table and items for the countertops.

The kitchen was designed by Bakes & Kropp, they did a beautiful job!  

How amazing is that chandelier!  The leather details reminds us of our new Giorgio!

Every room in the showhouse is stunning and unique, see images of the house on the blog Rio Hamilton, or if you are in the area visit the showhouse yourself.  It will be open through Labor Day and the proceeds will benefit the Southhampton Hospital.  Click here for more infomation or to purchase tickets.

When Jennifer of Decor Gold Designs let us know that she would be featuring Arte Italica on her blog we were thrilled!  She has incredible style and if you follow her blog or Instagram (if you don't you should) then you know it is full of amazing interiors and beautiful and inspiring images.  So of course being apart of that environment is such an honor.

We loved how she focused on creating your own Arte Italica collection and mixing and matching.  She even pointed out that she used two different chargers and the ends of the table!
