Linens

 

When choosing the linens for your table, it is important to factor in the look of your dishes, glasses and flatware, plus the décor of your dining area and the color scheme you are using.

 

It is best to start with a neutral tablecloth (white, ecru or biscuit), then branch out with more vivid colored or patterned ones; the same applies to runners.

 

Similarly, buy several sets of place mats and napkins in different hues and patterns, and then combine sets in different ways to create different moods.

 

Think about textures too; smooth weaves go well with porcelain and china; coarser cloths better suit pottery and stoneware.
