A Taste of Elegance [Modern Homeware]

Monday

For anyone interested in luxe design with simplicity when it comes to table décor accents, you will love this post. Even with a minimal colour palette, there are plenty of ways to conjure up an opulent display and achieve an effortless style aesthetic. 

I have put together a few tips along with great elements from a few homeware & interior brands to love! Whether it’s a table for two or morethis set is for those late afternoon epicurean feasts—here’s some inspiration to successfully pull off contemporary style with ease. On our side, all of the work meetings had finished and it was the perfect time to be inspired to plan ahead for hosting smaller dinner parties.  

I liked the more neutral palette this time but did not shy away from adding an electric colour of cobalt, accented with copper and goldHeath Ceramics has a splendid range of dinnerware and tonal pieces that speak to you. I love using grey because it adds a touch of sophistication, so if you’re lost in choosing a colour, then charcoal, blue-grey or pale grey can really offer more than what meets the eye. 


Lights & Mood: 
In a semi-moody style setting like this, if you want a certain style of lighting, think about positioning, be it on the wall, suspended, floor base, etc. Figure out if you want the fixture to be slightly inconspicuous, seen as the focal point or blended? The scale is also important, depending on the unique style of your [light] fixture, small pieces in a larger room will look smaller, so choose wisely. Know your intentions. 

There is quite a collection of creative and stunning small lamps, hanging light fixtures and window treatments to find in stores today, items that can elevate the entire ambience of a room. From wall lamps to shades. Soho House is a personal favourite, if you're not familiar with their facilities, you should get acquainted. They also have a lovely range of designs for every budget in their home range.  

Start your intimate evening with good drama—the kind when sunlight enhances the atmosphere in your home, and when the lack of it allows you to use those newly installed wall lights. The lights turned off in the setting here provided a naturally dramatic aesthetic. You can switch out your light bulbs as well. Perhaps, opt for daylight, full-spectrum bulbs and see how you like them. Daylight bulbs may also reduce eye strain and they are more energy-efficient.   


Couture Table Linens 
If you’re keen on embracing modern sophistication for linens and tabletop piecesChilewich has got you covered.  

We loved using their sheer ‘Tuxedo Stripe’ table runner to add a touch of modernity. Made with TerraStrand® and Microban®, this particular style is ideal for both indoor and outdoor entertaining and comes in gold and silver. What’s more, the easy to clean woven surface allows you to simply wipe away any mess. It’s no-fuss, which makes this not only functional for families but a complete win for everyone. This is especially helpful if you’re a bit overzealous when it comes to enjoying your gourmet delights. 

Don't get stuck in a rut when it comes to selecting seasonal colours—this formal style table runner is quite versatile and can be used for luxury evening dining for late-summer as well as casual entertaining in mid-winter, amplifying your minimal table elements. Remember, you needn’t be afraid of mixing it up. It’s all in the details and simple styling choices.
