A modern minimalist farmhouse style with a black and white color palette and natural colors and textures created the perfect look for 8 Maids a Milking in our 12 Days of Christmas Tabletops series.
We love that they took elements, that on paper can seem very rustic, and gave us a beautifully unexpected modern style that is elegant and sleek. We’re excited to share the details from Treasury Rentals and Ashton Events as they walk us through the design choices that were captured by Jenna Nicole Photography.
Laura from Ashton Events:
“This look quickly became one of our favorites as we look back on many of the tables we created. Using elements and textures that seem so unexpected with a modern style was a fun way for us to create something outside of the box, and stretch our creativity. For the centerpiece, we used a mix of cream roses and buttery golden brown blooms, cotton, and dried babies breath in a low, narrow arrangement. Choosing a black ceramic container allowed for a strong contrast with the blooms, and tied together the black details in the table settings. Creating a garland runner around the centerpiece with delicate branches allowed us to make the table feel full, but stick with the minimal style for the design.”
Emily from Treasury Rentals:
“Creating this design, we knew we wanted to do a nod to a farmhouse style along with the contrast of the black and white color palette as we associate the theme with farm style and the colors of a characterized maid costume, but wanted to create something unique and special. We absolutely loved playing with the contrast for this tabletop style. Pairing our driftwood chargers with black stoneware and flatware, and selecting a sleek style smokey gray glass allowed us to create some drama with the setting. By keeping the main elements monochromatic, it played well with the minimal style, and the charger pulled together some of the colors and natural textures found in both the linen from Nuage Designs, Inc. and Laura’s centerpiece design. A knotted white napkin placed on the setting helped completed the look creating contrast and balance that worked perfectly with the style.”
We love that they took farmhouse elements, that are so very much on trend right now, and gave them a sleek modern upgrade with the black details that created a style that could be easily translated all year long.
