"Lived-in" would be the diplomatic way to describe my kitchen. "A constant state of upheaval: might be a pinch more accurate. I love to cook, and lack of counter and pantry space means my kitchen table does triple duty. While I'm at one end of the spectrum, our house tours offer a rainbow of tablescapes from charmingly collected to beautifully bare.

Though there's currently a serving bowl of root veggies, a 2-tiered basket of fruit, and a full tea service on my kitchen table, I do appreciate simple beauty (and diligence!) of a more minimalist tablescape.
