win­ter’s peak ig­nites an in­tense yearn­ing for in­tense color. But not any color. Heart­felt val­ues that range from aubergine and pas­sion­ate pur­ple to the bright­est of fem­i­nine pink and reds of ev­ery depth give ta­bles a pulse that pumps out mem­o­rable beauty. While the de­sign com­mu­nity lauds the “mix”— col­ors, pat­terns, and tex­tures that har­mo­niously live in the same aes­thetic vein—a tonal ap­proach equals style to be cel­e­brated. Whether in a sin­gle tone for an in­ti­mate din­ner for two or an om­bré ef­fect like this for a larger gath­er­ing, your set­tings should be some­thing you love. Mot­ta­hedeh Mod­ern fem­i­nin­ity reigns on the “Lace” ser­vice plate in plum. Re­place­ments An an­gel trum­pets joy on Mot­ta­hedeh’s vin­tage “Gabriel Plum” plate. Fabri­cut “Con­cord Pe­tu­nia” solid and “Cemita Pot­pourri” ab­stract fab­rics present an ar­rest­ing stage.

Villeroy & Boch The “Verona” glass charger in aubergine casts a li­nen-like tex­ture. Re­place­ments Royal Stafford­shire’s vin­tage “Ton­quin Plum” salad plate sports a toile-like pat­tern. Robert Allen The suit-in­spired “Tweed Che­nille” fab­ric in a beet col­or­way is a nod to fash­ion’s tex­tile vault. Robert Hav­i­land & C. Par­lon through Mot­ta­hedeh The “Arc en Ciel” porce­lain ser­vice plate is rimmed with fuch­sia and ac­cented in gold. Re­place­ments Spode’s vin­tage scal­loped flo­ral “Prim­rose Rose” plate. Robert Allen “Soul Search” printed li­nen in a beet col­or­way re­sem­bles a sum­mer shirt. Villeroy & Boch Ham­mered “Black­smith” stain­less-steel flat­ware at all ta­ble set­tings.

Villeroy & Boch The “Ru­bin” buf­fet plate flaunts a sim­pli­fied Moor­ish style. Re­place­ments Vin­tage pat­terns—tulips on Water­ford’s “Tra­pani” salad plate and minia­ture blooms on Burgess & Leigh’s “Cal­ico” lun­cheon plate—set an up­beat mood. Du­ralee “Trix” ab­stract fab­ric in red and coral dresses the ta­ble. Mot­ta­hedeh A del­i­cate pat­tern graces the red “Lace” ser­vice plate. Villeroy & Boch The “Rose Caro” coupe salad plate shines with an over­size pre­sen­ta­tion of geo­met­ric medal­lions. Brun­schwig & Fils A chevron pat­tern is mes­mer­iz­ing on the in­door-out­door “Montser­rat” fab­ric in Sun­set.

Robert Hav­i­land & C. Par­lon through Mot­ta­hedeh Rimmed with terra-cotta and ac­cented in gold, the “Arc en Ciel” ser­vice plate sup­ports the “Sa­cred Bird & But­ter­fly” plate—a Chi­nese ex­port pat­tern from about 1800 that in­cor­po­rates tra­di­tional de­pic­tions of birds, but­ter­flies, and flow­ers. Fabri­cut “Shalini” silk strié in melon makes a dreamy back­drop. Villeroy & Boch “Colour Con­cept” buf­fet plate in red adds glass to the mix. L’Ob­jet The “For­tuny Uc­celli” dessert plate trans­fers the beloved For­tuny art form of fab­ric pro­duc­tion onto porce­lain with a rich blood­red ground and lux­u­ri­ous gold ac­cents. Fabri­cut “Leit­mo­tif” in a scar­let flo­ral-theme damask ups the glam­our.
