As the longtime co-owner of Charlotte, North Carolina-based Circa Interiors & Antiques (circainteriors.com), designer Jane Schwab maintains an enviable reputation for fashioning elegant, approachable Southern spaces both indoors and out. She applies this same gracious philosophy every time she sets the table for friends and family. In her view, the ideal June afternoon includes throwing open the French doors and prepping her loggia for a festive affair. An eye-catching Indian quilt was her inspiration for this particular early-summer event. Its happy yellow hue—punctuated by white and gray—proved perfect for this sunny time of year.
