This season we are delighting in the allure of warm neutrals and vintage charm. We had the chance to speak with Sharland England’s founder, Louise Roe, who generously shared her insights on how to layer the perfect tablescape. As we welcome the season, there is no better time to embrace the vivacious energy that this enchanting time of year brings. In this article, Louise share her insights and masterfully combines warm neutrals, captivating textures, and endearing vintage elements to create a perfectly layered tablescape. From selecting the ideal tablecloth to incorporating Granny's cherished serving dishes, you can create a memorable dining experience for your next soirée!
1. Begin with the Perfect Tablecloth
Elevate your dining experience by choosing the right tablecloth, Louise Roe says, "Start with a beautiful tablecloth, and the rest will fall into place. For Spring, I love our Napa design in cognac, because the colors are a warm neutral and basically go with everything."
4. Something Old
"And lastly, I always have something old on the table" says Louise. "I truly believe entertaining shouldn't be too strict or measured - have fun with it!" Incorporating cherished heirlooms adds character and warmth to your tablescape. "So bringing in some of granny's old chipped, charming serving dishes is a lovely touch."
