Get Ready for Spring & Summer with Upcoming Free Workshop!


In February, I had the pleasure of presenting an interactive session on designing for small spaces in conjunction with the DC Public Library. With more than 20 in attendance and positive feedback, I am excited to share that I'll be returning to the Petworth Library in May...this time with a superstar of landscape design!

Edamarie Mattei and I met more than 10 years ago by chance in a tennis class, and we connected over the sport, our shared alma mater (Georgetown University) and our interests in potentially pursuing careers beyond our current (at the time) lines of work in education and media, respectively. Since then Edamarie has built a thriving landscape design company, Backyard Bounty

That brings us to today as we both run our own businesses and decided why not tackle the topic of entertaining during warm weather months from both our areas of expertise! We hope you'll join us on May 15th:

Indoor & Outdoor Entertaining: Making Your Spaces Function & Flow
Tuesday, May 15 | 7-8:30pm
Petworth Library (4200 Kansas Avenue NW) | Lower Level Meeting Room

Amber Harris is the owner of At Home DC, an interior decorator and a licensed real estate agent with Keller Williams Capital Properties working with clients in DC, Maryland and Virginia. 

Clover Accent Tables

When you're entertaining, it seems like there's never enough space for people to leave their drinks and noshes (or phones). However, that doesn't mean you need to add a massive coffee table or side board that will just collect junk, dust, etc. the rest of the time.

I've been on a mission for the perfect small table to pull out when I needed extra space in my living room, and I intended to buy a simple c-table (eyeing the Portica from Room & Board due to ability to customize finishes and constantly checking for ones I loved at Home Goods). I ended up putting off the purchase but, in the end, I ended up with another "c-table," the Clover Accent Table from Grandin Road. I ordered the set on a whim after seeing a 30% off deal expiring in less than 24 hours and the nested tables came a few days later.

Aesthetic-wise, the clover design adds more of a feminine touch and the neutral top and soft metallic finish mean they blend well with my existing palette of gold, cinnamon, sage and cream accents. The tables are tucked away usually in the corner of my dining room (I have an open concept space with dining room and living room adjacent), and I've even added a decorative bowl and plate I received as a gift for my birthday and wanted to display. With an upcoming holiday party and more entertaining in my future, I know they'll get good use.

Is there anything on your home shopping list that you've been look for the "perfect one" of?
