The moment I read Aesthetic Oiseau’s Caspari + Scalamandra Zebras post and saw this picture,
I knew a road trip to my favorite Charlottesville store was in order. Fortunately Ellen needed a Caspari and Ivy Nursery fix, and the next thing you know, we were on I-64 heading west. While Southern Season carries a few of Caspari’s Scalamandre Zebra items, I wanted to see the whole collection.
Of course, it didn’t disappoint, and I was enamored with the tabletop the store created to encourage its customers to try the bold combination of colors and design.
This wasn’t the only tabletop that caught our eye.
The stylists at Caspari deftly mix the company’s gorgeous paper products
with the store’s home accessories for gorgeous and inspiring fall looks.
Even Halloween looks sophisticated.
The inviting autumnal styles
Albemarle Hall features pheasants.
almost make me excited about the changing season.
Thanksgiving will be here before we know it.
I am not sure which tableaux is my favorite,
but I left inspired to try some new tabletop combinations at home. The best stores have a way of doing that.
