Steal This Look: Nick Haus Dinner Party

Julie Carlson March 12, 2010

Nick Heywood, a RISD-trained interior architect in Providence, Rhode Island (and author of Nick Haus), recently sent us photos of his completed You Make It chandelier. We love the installed chandelier, but we also like Heywood's economical post-graduate-school entertaining style, which involves second-hand crockery, mismatched flatware, inexpensive elements from Ikea, and a simple menu. Go to Nick Haus for a step-by-step, detailed account of how to build the Lindsey Adelman You Make It chandelier, complete with photos, as well as recipes from his recent dinner.

Above: Most of Nick's dinnerware and accessories come from vintage stores, flea markets, and finds like "two 19th century ceramic tiles used as hot plates that I found in an abandoned farmhouse in Trani, Italy." Ideas we like: a single green chrysantheum as a floral arrangement; a centerpiece of peaches, nectarines, oranges; and a vintage apothecary jar used as a water jug.
