Loving these new inkbrush placemats and napkins from west elm . Inspired by Japanese brushwork, the set is artistic, but also adds a little zen to your dining experience. It reminds you to be in the moment and enjoy a special meal with friends and family, something my house seems to need these days as we rush to eat dinner standing up and running around after toddlers
