I recently introduced you to one of my favorite blogs, My Marrakesh, about a family's quest to build an eco chic boutique hotel, called Peacock Pavilions, in Marrakesh. As part of this quest, Maryam, the blogging girl, wanted her hotel's tables, Saarinen tables I might add, "to be, well, pretty." Instead of purchasing traditional round tablecloths or leaving the tables undressed, she designed her own tablecloths, edged with handmade passementarie buttons, because she didn't want "to cover the graceful stems of the Saarinen tables." If that's not sheer brilliance, I don't know what is. One look at the table settings, and I'm already booking my flight, waiting to hear the words, "dinner is served."
