About the Designer
Cindy grew up in the Midwest before relocating to the Central Coast of California where she has lived for decades as a busy interior designer. She loves to decorate in the season of fallas you will discover in this feast of organic, natural, and lush Thanksgiving inspiration. Her style is rough luxe – a luxurious blend of rustic and refined goodness.
BE A COLLECTOR…”I am a strong believer in a collected look and like to incorporate antiques and vintage items into my decor.” That philosophy gets applied to her tablescapes in which she incorporates natural style, fresh flowers, and greens from her own yard. She is a firm believer in using what you have on hand for creating a custom look at home.
SHOP YOUR YARD…This lovely fall tablescape with the paisley print linens and woven placemats was created in conjunction with Cindy’s project design series, and you can find more of its details and sources for it in this post. Since she has a wonderfully large garden, most of the flowers for the centerpiece were sourced from her very own yard.
Richly Rough Luxe California Style
FAKE YOUR DINING TABLE! One year, Cindy covered the family’s pool table in the game room with plywood and a big burlap tablecloth to create an oversized and bountiful Thanksgiving table. How smart and playful is that!?! To get the scoop on that tablescape visit her Post here.
RECYCLE THAT CENTERPIECE BASE…Cindy’s custom fence board box again is a favorite of hers, and she utilized it again for a Thanksgiving arrangement filled with what was available in her garden as you’ll see in this Thanksgiving themed post.

Beautiful Denim Blue
DESPERATION CAN BE INSPIRATION’S BEST FRIEND…The beautiful tablescape below is the result of pure desperation, according to Cindy. “I used wicker bottles I had on hand and added greens from my olive trees.” The napkin rings? The designer transformed Christmas ornaments scored at Walmart! This creative dynamo is giving us all permission to allow desperation to nudge us into creativity whether we are short on time or budget!
