Page Turner Placemat + Runner

When it comes to table linens, I tend to like something pretty simple. Almost always linen (despite the pain it can be to clean it) and almost always something solid, or with an incredibly minimal print. But every now and then I’m tempted by something a little whimsical with a photo-realistic print or clever saying. These ‘Page Turner’ designs at Anthropologie are a great example. They look like rows of book spines, arranged in a beautiful fade from purple to a pale blue-green. As much as I love a color-coded book shelf, they’re not always the most functional. So these would be a nice way to indulge in that trend without always having to remember what color the spine of your favorite book is. The placemat is sold for $12 right here and the runner is $32 right here (both are cotton). Here’s to dinner parties and great summer reading… xo, grace



I’m book crazy, so this would be perfect for me! Very creative idea – thanks =)


It would be fun to have your favorite book titles, an dyes, a great conversation starter. Love the color combination!
