Table Scape

Baltimore Harbor provides the perfect backdrop for an elegant dining experience

While renovating their condo in the Ritz-Carlton Residences on Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, the owners asked designer Teresa Buchanan to transform the two-bedroom abode—which encompassed an open-plan living/dining area with expansive water views—into a luxurious pied-à-Terre. Employing a blue-and-yellow palette that echoes her clients’ Swedish heritage, Buchanan framed the windows in gold-silk drapery panels with tassel trimmings from Scalamandré and woven-grass shades by Hartmann & Forbes that operate at the touch of a button. The round, glass-topped dining table is paired with Artistic Frame dining chairs covered in blue linen velvet. The elegant table is set with Waterford crystal, silver flatware, and blue-and-yellow china. A vase from Wisteria completes the look.
