    displaying art :: formal tableware fine china :: tea at the St-James

    This is my daily collection of noteworthy stuff that I saw online.

    + AT San Francisco taught us unusual ways of displaying art by looking at how Maya and Michael of Visualingual did it in their home. Their way makes all the difference. If you wish to know more about their home décor, Rearrange Design featured a house tour of their 2000 square feet apartment. Via Apartment Therapy San Francisco

    + This table featured the best in fine china from Legle Limoges to Bernardaud, Haviland and Royal Crown Derby. Again it demonstrates the added value of mixing and matching. Image from an undisclosed issue of Martha Stewart magazine. Via Toast and Tables.

    + The girl behind QlinArt is the second friend who told me that the English Tea at XO restaurant of Hotel Le Saint-James is second to none in Montreal. The impressive tea menu is served in superb tableware. Le Thé St-James comprises a sherry or a white Port glass. I always plan a visit but I never seem to find the time. Jerome, my husband, is a tea drinker so I have no excuses to avoid this unforgettable indulgence.

    + Seven Spoons tested drive two chocolate cake recipes. Look at the impressive multi-layer chocolate cake she did by combining Martha Stewart’s One Bowl Chocolate Cupcakes and Beatty’s Chocolate Cake from Ina Garten.
