  • This scheme uses two main colours – cream and pale duck-egg blue. This creates a blank canvas to which you can add patterned dinnerware and cut glasses.
  • Create a farmhouse-inspired setting by combining simple chairs with a robust wooden table. Relaxed long benches are perfect for seating extra guests.
  • Layer various shades of green – from light, leafy tones to dark sage – for a fresh and inviting feel.
  • For a welcoming and cheerful table, finish with plenty of cut foliage in plain and simple glassware.


Good Idea

Arrange a mismatched array of vases filled with various garden flowers for a quick, seasonal update.


Styling Tips

Mix materials for a relaxed look – embossed glasses, cream and floral crockery can be combined with metal light fittings, for example.

Old-fashioned Charm

Combine clip-top glass jars, balls of twine and traditional-shaped jugs for a pared-back, retro look.


Rural Edge

Aged furniture and wooden accessories give a desk area a country look.


Decorating with tactile textures

Raw Timber - Add a rustic feel to interiors by furnishing with untreated, dark woods, such as walnut and ebony, and reclaimed furniture that has a natural look.

Rough Finish - Track down accessories that have been cast using concrete – rough-fi nished materials like this sit well against smooth surfaces and prevent your scheme from becoming bland.


Moroccan Style

For a Middle Eastern-inspired alternative to a traditional spring scheme, try fretwork wallpaper patterns in a rich blue. Look for terracotta planters, glazed pots and plants to brighten the look. Finish with eclectic accessories collected from your travels.
