In springtime we love to invite guests over for a lunch or dinner in the weekends.
Normally the dining table and chairs are the leading characters in any dining area. Why not turn an ordinary setting into something to remember? Including some plants or flowers in the table setting can effordlessly make everything come to life and pull the whole room together. Shapes, colours and different sizes help you to show your personality in a creative way.
Either go with seasonal coolurs and flowers, or choose for green plants and leaves if you want to go for a calmer look. They can be used to create a center piece, but will also look great divided over a couple of vases, or paired with your cutlery.
Our tips to help you getting started:
– Try to repeat shapes and colours, but still keep a balanced contrast.
– Make sure to have some variations in the height of the stems and flowers to create depth.
– Match the shape of your creation to the shape on the table; center pieces are great for round, smaller tables, whereas a more spread-out creation might be better suitable for a larger rectangular table.
– A neutral backdrop will make the colour of your creation pop out even more.
Spring is the season of new beginnings, where doors open and bright colors return.
It’s natures start of the year, where blooming planta arise and the sun is starting to come out. But also the start of new trends and inspiration, creating endless possibilities. So let’s get ready to enjoy this Spring season!
Trends – they come and go every season of each year. Staying on top of them, might feel like a tough job at times. Don’t worry, team Emerald is here to help. Trends can be found in the use of materials, textures, lifestyles and colors. This Spring season one of the main trends is the choice of color. Lots of lifestyle and fashion brands, and even in the food industry you’ll see different brands share their favorite color codes for this season in their communications. This spring you can either go all out with dreamy pastels, or keep it classy by picking some nice neutral tones. Plenty of choice for everyone.
If we are sure about one thing, it’s that pastels are here to stay. These soft, beautiful shades are featured in some of our flowers and plants and look great in every room. But also a pastel colored vase and a more expressive stem or flower can be combined to form the perfect pair.
Simplicity is key
Opposed to those pastel tones, another trend is going back to basic. There has always been an unlimited love for neutrals. Who does not love peace and tranquility surrounding them? Find a perfect nude or earth toned vase and select one of our lush green plants to create your won oasis of serenity! Fancy a little extra? Upgrade your creation by lifting the vase up and placing it on a wooden, natural looking stool.
Let’s admit it; the hallway is often one of the most overlooked areas in any type of building. If it’s the office, gym, restaurant or even in your own home. At Emerald, we believe every room deserves a pop of colour.
We should all offer our guests a nice, warm welcome, right? It is their first impression of your house or building after all.
Also struggle to make your entrance feel special? Try to level it up by adding some colour. Here is how to do it: Either go big with a statement plant or try to brighten the place up by creating a stunning bouquet with seasonal flowers.
