SUNNY DISPOSITION: SETTING THE TABLE WITH A TOUCH OF CORAL

A touch of bright color on a summer table can raise the style quotient as the temperature does the same. A robust orangey coral color has been on the radar for some time, and it is showing up in wonderfully patterned tabletop designs. I love the color so much that I decided to upholster my chairs in it. The color's sunny disposition will go to your head, and these plates will encourage festive all fresco dinners all year long.

My favorite classic Roberta Roller Rabbit print has made its way onto china. Crafted from Limoges porcelain, the Amanda printed scalloped plate in an all-over orange and fuchsia floral print comes in a set of 4, in either dinner or dessert size.

Have some fun an mix in the solid orange plate with fuchsia border to add dimension to the printed plate. Available through Roberta Roller Rabbit.

The French know how to design beautiful china, natch, so Site Corot's geometric glazed porcelain plates from Barneys provide a playful spin on the medium.  The Florida patterned dessert or salad plate will make any sweet the star.

A zig zag hand-created border on the Florida Dinner Plate from Site Corot at Barneys  has a white center as to not compete with the main event.

A low soup or cereal bowl completes the  "touch of whimsy" look. From Barneys.

Like a glowing sun, these South African- made, hand-crafted ceramic plates from Terrain are punchy and strong.

A circle pattern and linear rays echo the rays of the sun, the Petals Plate, also from the same collective at Terrain.

Love these! The Roberta Roller being my fave...sitting here in one of her gorgeous robes, am a big fan of the line. Coral is so pretty, fresh and uplifting for a summer table. Hope your summer is off to a great start.

Hi Marisa, Coral has become one of my very favorite accent colors. Adore these place settings as well as the mix/match possibilities!
