Get Your Dining Space Spring Ready with Laura James
The first signs of spring have begun, flowers are making an appearance despite the chill in the air. When it starts to get a little lighter and the days feel a bit longer, we often want to inject that brightness into out homes. It’s the perfect time for spring cleaning and decluttering and the kitchen and dining space is a great place to start. Sort out those kitchen cupboards and get rid of the things that are out of date or no longer serve you. You could paint the dining room a different colour for a fresh new look; or just rearranging your furniture can make a big difference to the look of a room.
Spring is all about those delicious treats, hot cross buns, roast dinners, and of course chocolate eggs so turn your attention to your dining space. If you’re looking to invest in the perfect dining table this season then look no further than the Amelia table by Laura James. The Amelia features a beautiful intricate leg design and classic rectangular tabletop which offers ample space for seating. If you often host larger gatherings then the Amelia table also comes in an extendable version. Available in oak, black and whitewash colours you can create your own dining design by choosing to match the leg colour or opt for a different shade. If you’d prefer to freshen up your living room décor then the Amelia design is also available as a coffee table.
If you already have a neutral dining space, then you could introduce some pastel tones with a few home accessories. Put some artwork on the wall, or style shelves with books and pretty objects. You could even upgrade your dining chairs to a pastel shade or Scandi inspired design. For a chic storage solution choose a stylish sideboard. This is a great piece of furniture for a dining room as it hides away extra crockery or glassware. Style your sideboard with a pretty vase a candle and some fresh daffodils for a spring look.
Whether you’re having friends over for Good Friday or hosting lunch for Easter Sunday be sure to set the scene with an eye-catching tablescape. Dress the table with a fresh pastel tablecloth and opt for seagrass or jute place mats for a natural feel. Create a stylish centrepiece with twigs and foliage or opt for a few vases dotted along the table with fresh or dried flowers. If you are feeling crafty paint eggs in pretty colours and pop them in a glass vase or hang a few Easter-inspired decorations on an indoor tree. Choose floral napkins or mismatched crockery (or both) for vintage charm and don’t forget that all important Easter egg hunt!
