Rays of sunshine, flowers and… a buzzing brunch: all the ingredients for a successful Easter feast. Get inspired by three different colour palettes and have your dining table be the main attraction of your interior. bloomon’s Art Director Ferdinand Belfor shares his tips to get you started.
'Create the perfect base for your table by having your table cloth and napkins in various shades of yellow.'
Style 01 - Ochre with a twist
From ochre to gold: Easter just begs for shades of yellow. Yellow is a warm colour and brings light, space and energy to your interior. Ferdinand: “Create the perfect base for your table by having your table cloth and napkins in various shades of yellow. The bigger the colour difference, the prettier the result. Give it a playful twist by adding pops of colour with contrasting colours like blue or pink. Go for coloured glassware and opulent spring flowers.”
Style 02 - Sand & Ivory
Earthen tones always work well. Not only do they create the perfect canvas to style, but it also creates an inviting atmosphere. How do you prevent this dark colour palette from looking grim? Ferdinand: 'Pick less saturated, deep shades that have a soft look. Why not go for sand, beige or cobblestone colours. Together they balance it all out. Add natural elements - like a hazel branch - to create harmony.'
‘When you go bold with a lot of colours, it’s important to have a few organic shapes as your foundation, have straight lines some other time.'
Style 03 - Floral feast
Dazzling colours and eccentric shapes: go all out with a bold colour palette. There are no rules. ‘When you go bold with a lot of colours, it’s important to have a few organic shapes as your foundation, have straight lines some other time. Go overboard with tableware and chandeliers in different heights for a bombastic and festive feel, and sprinkle little flowers all over the table for the ultimate spring look.’
