Before vintage was vintage velvet was created in the Far East around the 13th century. Becoming immensely popular during the Italian Renaissance among royals there’s no wonder that this fabric is so clasically timeless. Velvet looks and feels super luxurious, giving any room a glamourous upgrade, so it’s a trend we are loving for 2018.

I am absolutely obsessed with all things astrology.
No kidding, I check my horoscope on multiple sites daily, including Elle Magazine.
So when I came across these amazing tablescapes on Elle Decor, pairing two of my absolute favorite things. I literally swooned.
The zodiac, similar to home decor gives us a unique perspective on who we are.
The Elle Decor team linked up with the tabletop curators at Casa de Perrin and floral designer Megan Gray of Honey and Poppies to create 12 astrology-inspired table settings that do just that.
I’m obessessed with how beautifully accurate these tablescapes match to each zodiac sign. Check them out.

On the more literal side, this place setting evokes a calm feeling with a subtle aquatic vibe for Pisces using orchids, air plants, hellebore, tulips, and ornamental kale that looks like it could have been plucked from a coral reef. Pisces is sensitive and empathetic, but can want to run away from their problems – much like the tulips wiggling out of the floral arrangement.

Virgos tend to be overly analytical and get caught up in the details, but they are also huge lovers of nature. This sentiment is represented by using many small, detailed, earthy foliages, including hellecho, sea star fern, begonia, pieris buds, hellebore, and vines, along with a mix of assorted earth-toned roses. The organic florals juxtaposed against the very structural herringbone tabletop make for the perfect Virgo mix of natural beauty and structural order.
