Entertaining With

Laura Vinroot Poole

December 2nd, 2015

Laura Vinroot Poole might be my entertaining kindred spirit. Not only does her home strike that elusive balance between being classic yet still edgy (can we please talk about the wallpaper and light fixture in her dining room?), but her food sensibilities are right up my alley, too. With an insatiable craving for anything Yotam Ottolenghi and a love for simple, satisfying menus, I get the feeling Laura and I would get along splendidly co-hosting a dinner party… case in point: she served up fried chicken and biscuits at the “fancy” holiday dinner party we’re sharing today. ‘Nuff said.

Of course, we’re not surprised. As a tastemaker and the owner of CapitolPoole Shop and most recently, Tabor, Laura’s known in her hometown of Charlotte, NC and beyond for her downright great style. Click through to see how she brings that great style to life at home, and for those of you in the Charleston, SC area this weekend: be sure to head out for Garden & Gun‘s third annual Jubilee: Made in the South Weekendwhere Laura will be be recreating the Tabor experience with fresh and modern men’s clothing, artwork and vinyl records. It’s going to be a magical weekend, and we’ll be in Austin wishing we were there…

    I’m so excited that you featured Laura’s lovely dining room (which I’ve admired since spotting it in Domino magazine a few years back), and how fun to get a glimpse of her inviting entertaining style and culinary flair! Those cocktails look divine.

    I love everything about this! Really loving Laura’s original style and her perspective. She is adorable (her name is awesome, too!).

  3. Tyler says:

    Her style is so elegant and chic, yet simple, tasteful, and classically American.
