Atlanta-based designer Lauren DeLoach loves to mix the old with the new, the formal with the casual, and pretty patterns with luscious neutrals. Her husband, Greg, is a contractor, and together they designed and built an approachable yet elegant Tudor-style home for their family of five. DeLoach’s dining room is full of holiday cheer with miniature boxwood wreaths tied to the backs of the chairs with luscious silk ribbon, longleaf pinecone place card holders culled from the family farm in South Georgia, and individually wrapped presents topped with acorns and cedar sprigs. Floral designer Marie-Laure Coste Dujols of Le Jardin Français fashioned the magnolia leaf encircled centerpiece.
DeLoach says what makes the setting most comfortable is the mix. Each place setting is a mix of wedding china and estate-sale finds, while three different sets of silver, as well as a set of horn steak knives, contribute to the casual feel. “Using what you have, even if it’s not a completely perfect match is important and says a lot about you and your style,” says DeLoach.
