irish breakfast

sunday lunch

love using shades of brown and black with crisp white plates and linens on a formal mahogany table...a friend brought a white ranunculus in a white pot, which was the perfect thing for the table...dark brown leather placemats, vintage brown stemmed glasses mixed with brown tumblers from ikea,  serving pieces and plates from jasper conran for wedgwood look good with the polished silver forks and vintage wood handled knives... a frittata, herb roasted potatoes, arugula salad and carafes of red wine, and it's  ready for friends to settle in for a relaxed afternoon !
