Going Coastal All Year Round

leslie-rascoe“I am a firm believer that any day at the beach is…well, it’s better than just about anything!

I wish I could bottle the feeling of excitement, waking before dawn with the realization that I’ve made it to my peaceful place. Before the sun even thinks about rising, I bound out the door, headed straight to the sand for a walk and exploration. I’m constantly inspired by nature, but especially by coastal areas.” – Leslie Newsom Rascoe

Over the years I’ve amassed quite a collection of artifacts from beloved beach trips. I keep these objects close to me…so close, in fact, I’ve started decorating around them!

  Going Coastal - 1

You would be hard pressed to find a room in my home without some sort of shell, rock, sea glass or driftwood. I treasure these objects for the memories they recall, but also because they invoke a feeling of organic, light-filled spaces I associate with living on the water.

We are hours from the coast, yet our home could easily be transported to Nantucket, the South Carolina Lowcountry or Catalina Island. I tend to keep the interior palette white, layering in furniture pieces that complement a more relaxed, coastal feel.

“A home should be a reflection of who you are no matter where you live, so for this beach girl, ‘Going Coastal’ is a way of life!”

A Classic Collection: Our Blue and White Pottery

A Classic Collection: Our Blue and White Pottery | Wisteria

Blue and white is a classic palette we love to work with here at Wisteria (besides purple, of course!). And when this color story is showcased on traditional Chinese pottery, well, we just can’t get enough!


The earliest known origins of making blue and white pottery are rooted in Persia many centuries ago. Making its way down the Silk Road, this process was perfected and popularized by Chinese artisans. During the 17th century, these prized pieces became a hot commodity among well-to-do Europeans—shipped extensively to the markets for years to come. The most popular ceramics sent over were hand-painted with scenic designs, a snapshot of the exotic culture and lifestyle of Asian society.


Depicting traditional Chinese life, among flora and fauna, each piece in our collection is thrown and painted by skilled artisans who practice the very same techniques used by their ancestors over 2000 years ago. Though a tedious and time-consuming process, artisans are able to shape what was once a dull ball of clay into these incredibly beautiful pieces—and we fall in love all over again every time a new piece enters our collection. Whether it be a vase, jar, a lantern, or a pot, our Blue and White Pottery Collection possesses an heirloom quality and delivers timeless style to any setting.

A Tabletop Worthy of Cheers

It's the time of year again where we're eager to entertain. The sun is shining bright, the weather is perfectly warm, and everybody's feeling refreshed. We know you're thinking "bring on the backyard barbecues and pool parties!" So, we've got a few ideas of how to set the stage for a bright and impactful soiree that's centered around every get-together's highlight: your tabletop.

We're all about a bold palette this season. Set your foundation with a solid tablecloth in your favorite color. Keep in mind, a good tablecloth is a staple for every entertainer, so select one that you can imagine living in other areas of your home. Check out our sturdy Burlap Tablecloth that's available in 7 versatile colors.

Now let's bring in some texture. People typically pay a lot of attention to the color and design of their chargers. We like to suggest a neutral option, like these Rattan Chargers, to introduce an organic texture to your tablescape. These chargers are perfect for any casual get-together and versatile enough to live on your everyday dining table.

 Rattan Chargers

While we love the idea of timeless white plates for every other occasion, your party deserves something fun and fitting for the season. We're crazy about plates with fun patterns and colors for so many reasons. They add a playful aspect to your tabletop whether you have a neutral setting or one that already has pops of colors and designs.

Scallop Plates

Polish off your tabletop with a couple brightly colored bouquets (we love hydrangeas) and maybe even a hurricane or two—and cheers!

The Beauty of Craftsmanship

Appreciating beauty is something we here at Wisteria pride ourselves on—especially in the craftsmanship of our products.

Our Moorish Chest is the epitome of beautiful craftsmanship. A design brought from North Africa to the Indian subcontinent by 16th-century Mughal princes, this chest is adorned with thousands of pieces of camel bone.

Moorish Chest - Wisteria

Handmade, each piece of bone is intricately cut and inlaid by hand on a hand-carved mango wood frame. A simple design with a striking pattern is the result of many hours of craftsmanship. The meticulous process of crafting this chest—down to the slightest detail—reminds us that handcrafting furniture (or anything for that matter) may be antiquated, but it’s not a lost art.

Bone In-Lay

This chest is a great way to infuse handcrafted, textured pieces into your décor. Make modern exotic by blending contemporary accents alongside this worldly piece. (Hint: Our Lucent Accent Chair and Bullet Glass Table Lamp will help complete the look!)
