Wow so many pretty things! The bedding is a bit colorful for my taste BUT do love all the tabletop, especially the pearlized flatware and barware..will have to check it out. She is a very chic woman and really does have such great style.

This line is so tied to the early 70s--I think I even had some bamboo inspired sheets in that green. Definitely wall papered a bathroom in a bamboo.

They'll appeal to the younger home makers. Sometimes it feels like we've been there and done that already when we didn't know better.

With bedding so bright there is no art to bed making or room design. If this is considered a new trend I'm disappointed and hope it passes quickly.

I don't care for any of the bedding. I prefer my bedding to be more quiet & serene. I like the irregular-shaped zen white dinner plate. I would pair the smokey taupe-colored martini glasses (the last ones) with clear crystal glasses of a different shape & height. The gold-colored honey comb plates could be interesting mismatched with another pattern/style of plates. And of course, use your antique/vintage 26 inch monogrammed linen napkins & fine sterling silver utensils. Add some flowers & you're good to go!
