Summer Polish

Playing with tabletops -- vanities, desks, bedside tables -- can give you a decorating fix when it's not a good time to make major changes. (David Hicks was famous for constantly editing his tablescapes.) Splurging on a tiny summer luxury like those oh so pretty blue-packaged products from Tom Ford for Estee Lauder, or rearranging scarves and jewelry you already have, adds fresh glamour to a dressing table. The Tom Ford body tint is $28.50.

For someone planning to make a bigger purchase, this mirrored table below, from Pieces, would be amazing as a vanity. $1350.

BTW: I think Domino picked Tom Ford's "face sheen" compact as a favorite in its latest June-July issue. Click the House & Garden image from last summer, above, to catch more lovely inspiring details.

Inspiring post. I would love to see more table scapes if you have them!
