Holiday Entertaining Is About Bounty, Joy And Abundance

We are a fan for both home and fashion of La DoubleJ thanks to its signature vibrant colors, bold patterns and playful yet sophisticated mixing and matching approach to layer up the different pieces from its various collections. La DoubleJ’s Founder, J.J. Martin, is a Los Angeles native, who  traveled to Italy on assignment as a fashion journalist 20 years ago, and she never left. Now, as founder of ready-to-wear and home-goods brand LA DOUBLEJ, she shared some of her thoughts and tips on holiday entertaining, which she credits her Italian friends with teaching her the rhythm of the table.

“This is not math. This is not science. There’s no rulebook to this. You just have to literally ask yourself, ‘Does my heart feel good with this?’ That’s how I judge it. The more I host, the more I learn, of course.” Martin paired a blue Cubi-print TABLECLOTH and matching NAPKINS with other items from her 1stDibs collection, including CUBI VERDE–PRINT DESSERT PLATES and ESPRESSO MUGS and a round GOODIE JAR.
