Stylist Tracey Strange’s tips for set­ting the per­fect spring ta­ble #In­spired

HERE’S HOW: If you want your ta­ble to look more Palm Springs than “high tea”, re­strict the tex­tu­ral pal­ette – com­bin­ing mul­ti­ple pat­terns and colours is pretty but it is rarely sharp. Give your ta­ble a fresh, trop­i­cal feel, and avoid pops of colour. In­stead, layer tone on tone (citrus works a treat) or com­bine clean, clear shades of hot pink, green, yel­low and turquoise. Con­sider fruit rather than flow­ers as a cen­tre­piece. Add gold – gilt-edged charg­ers, bur­nished cut­lery and other metal­lic ac­cents add glam­our and are also fash­ion­able.
