Welcome spring with an Insta-worthy tablescape and mantelpiece styled with pretty pastels and polished accents.
Rebecca Snowden, Interior Style Advisor at Furniture And Choice (FurnitureChoice.co.uk), shares 2 chic and luxe Easter décor ideas.
1. Style an elegant Easter tablescape
Welcome Easter long weekend with a gorgeous tablescape filled with pretty pastels and modern, luxe touches. “Elaborate table settings have become a trend in interior design, with beautiful displays taking over social media,” says Rebecca. Build an Insta-worthy look around a marble effect table and soft pastel hues. “A grey marble dining table sets a sophisticated tone for Easter brunch,” comments Rebecca. “Layer pink and white scalloped plates with woven placemats for a playful, whimsical feel.”
“A bit of sparkle and shine goes a long way in elevating a table setting. Choose gold-plated cutlery and brass accessories to create a polished and modern look,” says Rebecca.
Gold leaf Easter eggs are another elegant way to add in luxe details. Dye the eggs in a variety of pastel tones then stick gold foil on them to create a gold leaf effect. Place the eggs in bowls around the table, along with vases of fresh daffodils, to bring the Easter theme to life.
2. Refresh the mantelpiece with spring colours
Mantel decorating has taken off as a trend in recent years, as people look for quick and easy ways to update their homes. “Transform your fireplace into a spring focal point with a few impactful touches,” says Rebecca. “Brighten up your fireplace surround with a coat of fresh white paint and refresh the chimney breast in light blue as a nod to blue skies ahead.” Make the space feel cosy and inviting with a chic armchair layered with a cushion and throw in light floral hues.
On the mantelpiece, create a polished look around a mini spring garden with flowers and curated Easter motifs. Keep the colour palette soft and pared back – think pastel tinted vases and white ceramic planters and candlesticks.
Add lively spring colours through fresh blooms (such as daffodils, tulips and hyacinth bulbs) and contemporary pastel coloured artwork. Complete the look with Easter touches like decorative ceramic bunnies and a scattering of Easter eggs on the shelf.
