When designing a table, what do you prioritise?

Layering! Having objects on different heights and combining different textures gives that wow effect. It instantly gives more character to the table.

How do you set an Easter table?

1. Select your main colour(s):

For an Easter-themed table, a pastel colour palette works well.

For Inside, the turquoise tablecloth (as seen on image below) was first selected, which gives a good base to display the coloured vintage glassware on.

 2. Then a visit to the flower market, looking for fresh spring flowers such as tulips, daffodil, hyacinth, irises...

  

3. Complete the table with (pastel coloured) chocolate eggs (available at Inside store) and as a witty finishing touch a soft fluffy white chicken (by Citta Design, available at Inside: see below)

How would you describe your design style?

My style really depends on the project at hand. For example, it depends on the type of products to showcase; if it’s residential, it depends on the space and how the residents use their space and their style; in other words, having a design style also means having the ability to add your touch within the taste of the project.

How do you choose which colours to use?

It depends on the occasion and the location. For this table, I would start looking at the available colours of table, linens, dinnerware and vase(s) and make a selection.

This year’s trend colour is a light shade of purple, which contrasts well with yellow. Add a green and you have a good palette for Easter. General rule: don’t mix more than 3 colours.

Is there a key tip you would like to share with us?

Yes! Try not to stick to only one brand when decorating your interior. The more you diversify the brands, the more your decoration will outline your unique style.
