I’ve never really decorated a table for Easter before but then I saw these eggs in a vase on Pinterest and it inspired me to make my own ‘pastel’ version with left-over paint I had and use my beautiful tableware designed by Sophie Conran for Portmeirion. It was really easy to do and turned out to be very pretty too so I’m really pleased with the whole look of our Easter table. I also put together a super easy family menu which you will have no problem replicating.
Steve and I have been together for two decades so dinner at the restaurant with half of the country is really not my idea of a romantic meal. I much prefer when we surprise each other with little attentions any other day of the year to show that we love and care about each other. Last year, I put a mixtape together. This year, I have re-styled our dining room with a large blank canvas where I added the word LOVE and created some free printables which you can download and use as Valentine’s card. If you place them on each plate like I did, you will need to select to print as A5.
Blue is definitively a colour that gets my attention comes Spring time and I really love the Design Lab 2016 collection done this year with Anna Glover. Anna graduated from University College Falmouth in 2009 and returned to London to work as part of a creative studio producing dedicated artworks for high end, global fashion brands such as Givenchy, Cacharel, Etro & Armani. She specialises in creating distinctive, beautiful hand-painted artworks, brought to life through her skilled approach to colour, scale and digital surface print.
I’m so loving this beautiful, natural styling by Photographer & Stylist Line Kay who I have mentioned before here. The mix of textures and soothing off white and cream hues with a few touch of vintage makes this the perfect spot to hang out on a gloomy day. Line’s recent natural styling for Hale Mercantile Co. is also pure eye-candy. Go here to read about 5 ways to use this gorgeous naturel basket. GET THE LOOK:
A few weeks ago, I updated the styling of one of the bedrooms in this holidays home which you can rent via Airbnb. Bearing in mind that the house is for sale and I can’t give it too much of a strong identity so everyone visiting it, can project their own style, I have decided to leave the walls white and add small styling touches to create a happy vibe. This was an inexpensive styling job (only about 15 euros for the stretched canvas), a few tear sheets, my BE HAPPY print, some family photos and quotes found on Pinterest.
This is one of my all-time favourites styling by Cleo Scheulderman who regularly styles for Dutch magazine VT Wonen. I love the display of rustic chopping boards (these are 25% OFF in the sale), the raw concrete floor and vintage furniture against a deep, indigo background and of course this beautiful papier maché lampshade by French designer Myriam Balay. While white is definitively my colour of predilection at home, comes Summer and I crave for blue grey linen, blue shutters like the ones in our home in France (more details here) and indigo cushions and accessories. Talking of which, we will soon add a gorgeous collection of handmade, indigo throws to the shop. And if anyone knows a UK ceramist that makes gorgeous cups like these, please let me know as I need a few for a styling job next week in the UK. What do you think? Which feature (s) do you love the most? // Styling: Cleo Scheulderman, Photography by Jeroen Van Der Spek SHOP THE POST
