Domino featured artist Kristi Kohut
enlisted the help of Chicago-based designer Claire Staszak
to plan a holiday gathering as colorful as her modern artwork. With a few simple do-it-yourself projects, this modern table setting is a breeze to create in any color palette that suits your dining space—especially useful if red and green just aren’t your thing.
“There’s no rule that says you have to use typical holiday colors that often don’t match your interior décor,” says Claire. “Instead, it’s fun to try a non-traditional approach and create a table setting that is unique, yet still festive.” Kristi’s artwork served as the inspiration for this bright and cheery holiday table. And neutral green and white florals, white plates with pewter chargers, and hand torn cloth napkins served as a backdrop for an assortment of colorful vintage glassware, watercolor painted cookies, and menus that double as little pieces of art. It’s surprisingly simple to bring these DIY elements together to create a table that is truly a reflection of your home and personal aesthetic.
