Casbah Cool Grill Tablescape-Jeannie Fraise styles a modern Moroccan table with a nesting theme at the Thomas Fogarty estate.
For this table, Jeannie Fraise of Lotus Bleu creates a modernscape with a Moroccan splash.
Jeannie chose a hot pink and steel gray color palette with soft, green accents. She and her design assistant, Allie Bruch, built the dining area layer by layer, beginning with a green-and-white-striped dhurrie rug by Madeline Weinrib. They rented and pushed together two children’s banquet tables (6’L x 30”W x 21”H) and used a gray tablecloth from La Tavola Fine Linen Rental topped with a printed cotton tablecloth by John Robshaw. The duo added placemats, dishware, napkins, flatware, cushions, and votives using items available through Lotus Bleu, including pieces by Madeline Weinrib, John Robshaw, Muskhane, Katherine Rally, Thomas Paul, and glassybaby. They placed a colorful collection of Lotus Bleu lacquerware (Jeannie designs and manufactures them in Vietnam), and sprinkled around small side tables from Oomph and Casamidy to hold nibbles and wine, so nothing was far from reach.
