Known for the love of pattern, shape, and color, we couldn’t be happier here at Deborah Rhodes that this season is all about extravagant and daring accessories set in the moody background. It’s the perfect time to give an edge to soft, monotonous schemes, and update them with whimsical, daring motifs.
Color Red has been getting a lot of hits at the high fashion shows of Fall 2017, and we see no reason why runway looks should be reserved for your closet. We’ve extended this festive beauty onto our holiday tables by slightly shifting color proportions towards the red and white combination of the candy cane look.

The darkness of the night is a perfect backdrop to expose warm tones of gold. Be daring this holiday season. Layer metallic linens over gold lacquer or shimmering lurex placemats. For a maximum drama in old Hollywood style – play around with shapes and dazzling accessories.

This fall is about opulence. Interior design trends have been suggesting a shift to moody shades of emerald greens, ruby reds, and amethyst. Benjamine Moore color of the year – Shadow – has served as an excellent background for the brave clashes of jeweled tones. Combinations are endless. Festive overindulgence is a must.

Try pushing your all-white scheme a little further to create a winter wonderland mood for the table. Magical, woodland-inspired motifs play well with a dust of silver, flashes of feathers, and a smattering of pine cones. Imagine snowy winter scene, and let your imagination be wild!
