Simply Gorgeous!

Take Two
The design expertise of Cheryl and Alison Womack doesn't stop at interiors. When client Suzanne Plybon asked them to create an elegant tabletop for a special outdoor occasion, the team sprung into action. French chairs were whisked outdoors to the Buckhead garden, surrounding a brilliant tabletop guaranteed to command each guest's attention. "Orange is Alison's favorite color," says Cheryl. "I was turned off by it for so many years because I grew up in the '60s, when orange was everywhere - even shag carpet. It's only because Alison loves it so much that I've learned to love it again too."
Earthy, but nowhere near dull, the tabletop's rich orange color scheme fits the mood of late summer entertaining, paying tribute to long afternoon sun sets and signaling the slow, Southern transition to cooler days ahead.
A mélange of natural textures sets the theme for a warm and inviting tabletop design by mother-daughter duo Cheryl and Alison Womack.
"I love the textures and colors of different lettuces. A mixture is so great on a tabletop. It's very fresh and organic." -- Alison
A creamy burlap tablecloth fashioned from Lewis & Sheron textiles is layered with an orange one from Forsyth Fabrics for a rich effect. "The sculptural centerpiece is Torhout pottery, an 18th-century find made from textured soil found only in Belgium and Holland. I had this stored in the basement for weeks before I realized it would be so perfect for a tabletop." -- Cheryl
