taking it to the rue {and the nydc}

last wednesday, i had the pleasure of collaborating with rue magazine, the newly launched chic online magazine, on their kitchen presentation at new york design center's what's new what's next event.  rue assembled a cracker jack team of talent, including marissa lippert of nourish on the stove 1 & 2s for a fall entertaining cooking demonstration and jacqueline weppner of merci new york, who i worked with to convert a showroom kitchen nook into a fabulous tabletop design...if i do say so myself and i just did.

aren't the plates divine?  the first of jackie's abc home pulls.  and the flatware?  that's from me...a vintage set from mommy when i moved into the crib.  you know i love the gold...
the centerpiece vessel {another gorgeous pull by merci new york} is actually a three tiered stand.  it's all about repurposing what's in your kitchen. 

i was a french major so i have lots of french books on my bookcase.  

marissa's delicious tart.  that's her in the center doing her thing.
soup tureen and vintage glasses as vessels. 

jackie's attention to detail is insane, in a good way.

branding done right
tabletop design and styling by merci new york, recipes by nourish 
it's always great to collaborate with amazing people and i had a great time working on this event.  can't wait for the next one!  and BIG UP again to anne, crystal, caitlin and alaina at rue for making it all happen.  add rue magazine to your bookmarks.  it's stylish, chic, inspiring and free!
