Her home design was no different. My grandparents' house in Naples was a beautiful ranch built around the pool, or lanai as Floridians might call it. One half of the house was grandkid safe, with brown shag carpet and brown furniture. The other half of the house was white and yellow and very, "do not touch." In fact, I sat in the formal dining room, even at Christmas and Thanksgiving.
At the center of the formal living room was a gorgeous glass coffee table with a gold sheaf of wheat (Alpha Love Y'all) base. Sure enough, just like Grandma's style, her taste in home design has come back for a resurgence too. I'm seeing it everywhere.
I'm not sure whatever happened to that table, but it would look mighty fine in my Christmas Tree Room. It's not exactly kid-friendly, but maybe velvet ropes can be a statement piece?
