Turn any space into a magical place to host an unforgettable evening with friends
Think of a haystack in an industrial loft, this cold space has been given a ‘hygge’ makeover and transformed into an intimate dining room for the evening.
Past and present
It’s OK to be mixed up! Flea market finds such as the unmatched cutlery and the classic tableware have been mixed with glasses from Zara Home and simple wicker table mats.
Creative and bohemian, chic but casual, romantic and eclectic, this is a perfect table setting to celebrate Christmas dinner among friends.
French champagne, linen and gold details add a sense of luxury to the bohemian setting. And here is a little secret - the runners are in fact Italian foulards; don’t they give the table a relaxed and elegant look?
Magic of candlelight
Dinner must be under candlelight - it makes people look their best and it entices intimate conversations! It is specially beautiful at Christmas so lots of candles have been placed everywhere - on candle sticks, bottles and lanterns to create a magical atmosphere.
Keep it Warm
Tureens, lots of them - one for each guest to remind us that this is going to be a winter meal with a warming soup as a starter, because, baby, it’s cold outside!
It is always nice to add a touch of nature to any table scape and here, instead of the traditional flowers and centrepieces, eucalyptus branches decorate the wire pendants above the table. Eucalyptus has a comforting scent and a purifying effect. Another natural element, hay, has been used to decorate the crates; a soft reminder of the stable where Jesus was born, perhaps.
A little red
Yes, a wink to tradition has been added with the red heart hanging from the wire pendant so as to remind the table of what Christmas is really all about - a four letter word we don’t say enough.
