What Houzz contributors are saying:

Study the work of designers you admire. Top designers' portfolios are filled with inspiring examples of tablescapes. This is why they get paid the big bucks, so take the time to really observe the looks you love. Break them down and think about how they were created and why they work. For instance, in this space designer Thom Filicia used a heavy potted plant to anchor an arrangement on a round table. The rule of three would include the plant, the tall sculpture and the stack of books with ram's head on top. But use your hand and block out the round tray on the right side — would it work as well without that? I don't think so, because the three main items are all really heavy, and the flat round tray lightens things up and repeats the round shape of the pot and table, which then become their own group of three. Even the best designers need to experiment with what looks best in a certain space, so cut yourself some slack and allow time for trial and error. Decorating should be fun!More:Creating a TablescapeTitillating Tablescapes
