Colour is a powerful and versatile decorative tool that can be used in many ways – both tonally and in combination – to create different moods, themes, and effects. A well–dressed table doesn’t have to be grand in style, but the setting should be relevant to the occasion. A simple and fine setting can create intimacy, a feeling of calm and relaxation.
As my house has neutral palette and contemporary decor it work super amazing as a canvas for my coloured, textured crystal.
Gurasu Sky Blue Crystal Glassware
Blue is a colour I associate most strongly with Italy or Greece. It reminds me of the vivid turquoise sea and the cloudless azure sky. Blue is also a colour that features in all styles and periods of tableware, from eighteenth – century Chinese ceramics to blue glass of the early nineteenth century.
My favourite styling with blue would accompany colours of white or pale grey linen with a splash of yellow. Yellow would take a form of a vase placed in the centre filled up with yellow fruits such as lemons, bananas or grapefruits. I would also fill a decanting carafe with water and infuse it with mint, lemon and lime. Flowers would be delicate and simple. Thus, I would use sky blue crystal glasses for water, clear crystal for wine and a large vase in the middle for flowers or lemons. It is up to your imagination whether you use flowers of fruits to decorate. A couple of tea light candle holders in sky blue and clear. I often use tea light holders as bud vases as they look sweet and glamorous.
Burned orange, amber gold
Celebrating the introduction of new piece to our amber gold range of stemware, we would like to say hello to a water tumbler and tea light candle votive tea light candle votive in amber gold. Amber is my favourite hue when I want to create an opulent feel.
Set against dark backgrounds or pale linen accessorise with flowers ranging from yellow to red and burgundy. The vibrant colours of flowers are followed through at different levels – from the tallest vase to a bud vase and some rose petals sprinkled throughout the table.
Any room lit entirely by candlelight has a magical theatrical feel.
The colours of ruby, amber gold, amethysts are the perfect colour palette to create warm and opulent atmosphere. Flowers such as pink lilies, red roses, purple hydrogen would accompany gold, ruby, and clear glittering crystal table setting. White and crispy linen tablemats placed under beautiful bone china accompanied by silverware will add a style of luxury to this setting.
More to come
