When it’s time for holiday hosting, it’s all about the mix! Combining different patterns is what makes a table fun, festive, and interesting for your guests.

No one does the mix better than Modern Mix author Eddie Ross and our own favorite Bunny Williams, which is why we’re so thrilled to share this gorgeous table with you today. On Christmas Eve!

Our love for Bunny Williams runs deep, especially since she debuted her new tabletop and accessories collections with us. So you can imagine our delight when we found out she’d be the designer of the 2015 Southern Living Idea House. We couldn’t wait to see how she created an inviting home that reflects her Southern roots.

Susanna Salk's dining room makeover

When our great friend Susanna Salk mentioned she wanted to switch up the look in her dining room, we couldn’t wait to see where her imagination would take her! So we were thrilled when she wanted to use our own Dayna Armchair! She kindly agreed to detail the process in a post for us, so we could share her good ideas with all of you!

They say that it’s important to embrace change when it comes to life. And they also say that your home should be a consistent haven in an ever changing world. So when do you change your home? I don’t mean renovation as in “we need a bigger kitchen or bathroom” sort of change. I mean tinkering of the non essential variety.

Dining room color palette with leopard print and magenta accents

Suggesting you decorate your space with leopard and magenta sounds a bit intimidating; after all, both of those are quite bold! But for this dining banquette, the final space was actually quite restrained. To do that, we used a creamy white shade on the paneled walls and then brought in lots of accents of blacks, like the Paris Bistro Chairs and the ironwork on the Arturo 8-Light Chandelier.
