How to do Pretty at Home

Womenswear has been a feast of prettiness this season but we’d like the Homeware department to get a piece of the pretty action. Here we show you how to celebrate this Summer’s most charming trend around the house. Film and stills as ever courtesy of the brilliant double act that is Amy Brooker and Simeon Leeder.

The Brief

 

It’s not always about laying the table but we do love to entertain. Feel free to adapt these looks to suit a bit of coffee table styling or use individual elements on a bedside table, windowsill or shelf (more of this later). We’ve just set ourselves the challenge of making the most of the prettiest things in the shop; creating a peaceful and sunny mood.

 

The Palette

 

We’ve focussed on key colours for this story. Any child of the 70s may well remember Peppermint Park, a cocktail lounge just off Long Acre (or was it just my parents taking their young offspring for a night on the town and a sneaky margarita) and their pitch perfect pink and green graphics. Taking their lead we are using pink and green as the anchor colours with some glass, natural rattan and fresh flowers to provide a little gravity and variety and to mitigate the cute.

 


Look 1 - Soft and Gentle

Interesting ceramics have been really popular for SS21. We’ve combined the graphic stripes of the Toppu range of cake stands with the pastel checks of the Vaisselle vases to set the scene down the centre of this table. This is, to a degree, modern in styling but traditional in colour. White pearl china (our ever popular dinnerware from Portugal) provides a quiet neutral along with clear stemware from The Vintage List and brand new clear glass candlesticks. We’ve used Colombia Collective placemats to provide a different texture. The softness of the sweet peas (thankyou Dave at The Original Flower Stall) mirrored by the candles.


Look 2 - Elegant

Dimming the lights somewhat, this look gives the prettiness a more elegant (and possibly more dinner party, rather than lunch party) feel. Sweet peas again take centre stage (this time in a pretty Vintage List vase) but we’ve focussed on the sharper, brighter pinks. The deep green of Bordallo china (another popular Portuguese range, based on cabbage leaves) works with coloured candlesticks in pinks and greens. Try Hay Tint tumblers and glasses for a more contemporary version of this colour story. And if you’re protective of your table’s surface, try the Klevering faux marble or floral coasters.


Switch it up for the Coffee Table

I’m not a great one for styling a coffee table (I’m more of a glass of wine, TV remote, Dairy Milk kind of girl). But if you are less slovenly and more house proud, both the above looks for a dining table lend themselves to some very pretty low tables. Start with a vase of flowers or a beautiful bowl of fruit (you need something natural). Add a pair of candlesticks (it’s good to have some height). Stack a couple of piles of your favourite selection of pretty books and add a scented candle (Maison Louis Marie no. 4 is the olfactory equivalent of prettiness).
