Romantic and Fanciful
Textile designer Michael Devine conjures a romantic, swoon-worthy alfresco fete. "To complement the floral arrangements, I chose crisp yellow-and-white table runners in my Chantal fabric," he says. "Vintage blue-and-white chinoiserie-pattern dinnerware was paired with napkins tied with striped ribbon." He wired fanciful faux butterflies into the arrangements, making them appear to be fluttering throughout the Queen Anne's lace.

For an outdoor lunch, designer Miles Redd — a Pisces — draws inspiration from the sea, filling his table with glimmering objects and watery hues. "The table has an iridescent quality — like the inside of a seashell. Light dances, which gives the eye a lot to play upon and makes the whole dining experience so exciting."

Real style is about mi it up. And fashion designer Rebecca Moses wouldn't have it any other way. "I love polka dots and stripes together," she says. "Dots are sophisticated — and so happy. We have to create happiness in our homes, and for me, the starting point is the table."
