Sit & Eat

As a follow on from last weeks post, Hearty Home, I thought I’d collate some images of lovely dining areas. Whether you’ve got a separate dining area or one joined to your kitchen, I think that creating a nice environment to entertain in is important. I like to team eclectic pieces of furniture to create a quirky feel and add colour and texture with textiles.

If you want to see more of my inspirations for creating a beautiful area to sit & eat, check out the Hana & George Pinterest page.

Happy Wednesday!

Al Fresco

It may be September but we still seem to be graced by such glorious weather that I intend on making the most of it. It won’t be long until autumn comes along and we’re greeted by the burnt hues of the season, but until then, I am making the most of having relaxing dinners outside with friends and family.

Here are a few lovely images that I have found to act as inspiration when laying the table and for creating the perfect evening setting…

Up Close

I always find that when you take time out to inspect something close up, that even the most everyday of items can hold inspiration. This week I have found myself studying images that I have found and paying attention to not what is just at the forefront of the images, but the detailing surrounding it….

Happy Friday!

All Set

As we’re about to welcome Easter and sunnier times, I thought I’d put together a little table setting inspiration. As soon as this time of year comes around, I tend to shed my hibernation layers and love to entertain and welcome friends and family over to celebrate this lovely time of year.

Here are a few ideas that I have come across that are as simple as they are stunning to give your table a beautiful atmosphere. If you’re looking for more table setting ideas, take a look at our Pinterest page.

Happy Monday!

Comfy Velvet

This is the perfect weekend to sink into a comfy corner in your home and get lost in the pages of a stack of books. Colourful velvet fabrics with button detailing and make sure that you’re accompanied by subtle cocktails. Can you think of anything better?

SWOON.

Decadent Sphere

I was met by this stunning image while I was scrolling through a blog that I regularly follow myself. The image comes from the Victoria & Albert Museum in London and graces the cafe within the historic building.

I love how the combination of old and new from the decadent ceiling and light spheres joins so perfectly together. I think this would be an idyllic atmosphere to soak up the visual delights that the V&A has to offer…

Table Style

There is nothing more satisfying than creating a well laid table for festive parties. When out walking, it’s easy to pick up inspiration for styling the perfect table, and vases of winter foliage dotted along the centre of the table or fallen branches can add instant glamour to the setting.

I love to tie ribbon to the stems of wine glasses and roll napkins up with brown string – all of these touches are inexpensive to achieve and can be used over again, what ever time of year.

Happy Thursday!

Magical

This crystal drop chandelier is magical. The gold accents from the full length gilt mirror with the metallic plant tray compliments the glowing light. I really like the combination of old and new in this dining room, perfectly balanced and welcoming.

Happy Thursday!
