The Tastemaker's Table - William & Susan Brinson Curate The Ruralist Modern Table
Daniel and I met William and Susan Brinson while exhibiting at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show a few years ago. We connected instantly sharing passions for design, food, home, entertaining, music and of course, our dogs. We were absolutely thrilled to collaborate with them on the images of our brand which created the platform for our new website.
We couldn’t have been more excited to have the inaugural Tastemaker’s Table curated by the Brinsons. They chose a simple black and white palette without texture to add to their vintage cutlery and glassware. A bit of old world elegance mixed with modern porcelain and a natural arrangement of flowers make their table setting their own. We love how they added a touch of girly lace linen and textured natural paper on top of the clean modern lines of our Bare dinner plate and Battuto salad plate. And that little sprig of flower brings the outside in. We can’t wait to head to their Stonyford Estate for dinner by the fire.
The couple met in high school and have been creating together ever since. After art school they moved to NYC and pursued individual careers, then in a natural evolution they began collaborating as a team. We could totally relate. What else? They moved from NYC to upstate NY taking on the awesome labor of love renovating their Stonyford Estate. Again, we totally relate. But we soon became awestruck when we saw the work that they do. Photographers, stylists, influencers, these two combined are a powerhouse of creativity, ideas and incredible taste. You must add their blog www.houseofbrinson.com to your reading – we promise you will be inspired to cook, decorate and perhaps find your own fixer upper to love.
