The talented Design Shop Interiors team shares their elevated and eclectic table-styling secrets.

Why are the ladies of Design Shop Interiors breaking bread? Because they’ve had a breakthrough year. In addition to completing their most high-profile builds and renovations to date, adding new members to their team and getting projects featured in national publications, team DSI opened a brick-and-mortar boutique, The Shop, located in Folsom. It’s a haven for homeowners looking to add the brand’s signature California-casual style to their spaces, as well as hostesses who aim to impress their guests.

“I in particular am toasting the entire DSI team,” says founder Leyla Jaworski. “They continue to push boundaries, and they just keep getting better. Every completed project leaves me astounded.”

This summer, DSI senior designer Whitney Rose Fecteau collected her favorite wares from The Shop and invited the stylish squad over to raise a glass—and, in true DSI fashion, a little hell, too.

Whitney’s Tablescape Tips

Mix up materials: “It’s important to incorporate a lot of different textures: a linen table runner mixed with a natural-fiber charger, some pottery and clear glass, a hint of brass, some greens and flowers. All of those different textures make it really interesting on the eye.”

Throw in the tea towel: “Tea towels are great napkins because of their size. We like to lay them on a plate under a place card. Or open them and use them as a placemat.”

Don’t board your cheeseboards: “When I’m not entertaining, I love to hang cheeseboards on the wall as art or stack them against an empty space on a counter. They are great for serving and decor.”

And no matter what: “Conversation and connection are important at a table. You want the table setting and styling to enhance that, not take away from it.”

Whitney used mostly greens native to Northern California found in her Newcastle backyard, mixed with a few blooms from her local flower mart.
