REFRESHING THE BIG TICKET ITEMS
If you feel your home isn’t up to scratch, consider some updates before the party. Domayne furniture product and marketing manager Amber Cooke says there are some clear trends this summer.
“Light timbers, particularly Scandinavianinspired timbers, are really hot,” she says.
“Also with furniture, we’re seeing a lot of mixture of materials and textures, so not everything has to be matching. We’re seeing beautiful gold tones with timber, pastels, and emerald green is right on trend.”
Amber says an extension table is a great option for entertaining.
Dress up the table using your favourite dinnerware and glasses or update with a bit of holiday sparkle on plates or cutlery.
“It’s great to set the table with beautiful vases and trays and greenery,” she says.
