The periwinkle-and-brown color scheme is a chic substitute for the usual fall colors of pumpkin, rust, and gold. The ensemble of dinnerware graduates from rough wicker chargers to glazed creamware dinner plates to smooth and glossy polished horn bowls, perfect for a piping-hot winter squash soup. And the olive wood-handled flatware is an ideal fit for this tablescape.
“Raised Dot” dinner plate, $60, and cereal bowl, $40; both by Frances Palmer. Rattan charger, $15. All items available through Seacloth (203/422-6150).
