No one is coming to dinner. This largely becuase we’re still living in limbo, not really at home and not yet with anything that couldn’t be packed into two suitcases a piece. I’ve been enjoying the minimalism to some degree I suppose, but am looking forward to getting set up in a more permanent living situation so we can do things that one does in a more permanent home…like entertain.
I was walking down our neighborhood-to-be-again on 14th Street in Logan Circle, which has changed tremendously in the nearly three years that we’ve been gone (and even more tremendously in the 10 years since I’ve moved to DC for the first time where it was my original stomping ground) and we enjoyed an evening stroll to get a feel for the new places and revisit some of the old.
One of our most favorite places for furniture is Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams and it just so happened they were hosting a little neighborhood ‘do last night to showcase table settings for a charity cause. They were put together by Manvi Drona-Hidalgo – I don’t know her but I’d like to – these definitely gave me a few ideas for when the days of dinner parties finally make a come back. Manvi also has a super stylish interiors and events design blog – give it a gander at Mochatini.
Looks like DC has stepped up its game while we were out – I like it, I like it a lot.
