We were absolutely thrilled to see a special appearance by our Foret (Gold) in the 2019 Real Simple Home. The pattern appeared in this stunning dining room, designed by one of our favorite interior designers, Cortney Bishop Design. We loved these tips she shared with Real Simple for getting a similar look in your home (copied below from Real Simple):

1. Lower your light

Create an intimate setting with a low dining table fixture. Keep the bottom of the light 32 to 36 inches above the tabletop so it doesn’t obstruct your view.

2. Shop vintage

When buying antique pieces, prioritize interesting legs and hardware, says Bishop. That way, no matter what color or stain you may add, it will still feel one-of-a-kind.

3. Round it out

A circular table and rug keep this dining space casual; plus, there’s more room for foot traffic to flow through the open floor plan.

Bonus: Play with pattern

Request swatches of wallpaper and fabric you’re considering to see how they will work together. “The smaller the print, the easier it is to mix with other prints,” says Bishop.
