Easter Table Decor

If you're hosting Easter this year, then it's time to start thinking about your table's decor. Easter eggs are the first thing that come to mind for many of us who celebrate the holiday, so try incorporating them into your table setting. An easy way to do this is to create a centerpiece that combines eggs with flowers, moss, twigs, or grass. Fill a large cylinder vase with decorated eggs and seasonal flowers for a refined and slightly more formal look. Stick with tulips, daisies, or daffodils as they are currently in season. To give your table a more casual feel, create multiple small arrangements in vases, nests, or egg cups. If you are assigning seats this year, direct guests where to go with homemade egg shell name cards. Simply write your guest's names on an egg and put one at each place setting. You'll be sure to impress!

Happy Easter all!

Good Style Design: Teal and Grey Dining Room

Last but not least, I want to share my favorite dining room design from Good Style Design. This teal and grey dining room incorporates classic furniture with an updated color scheme. Keep it simple by painting the walls in Benjamin Moore's Plymouth Rock or go bold and select a teal paint color that coordinates with the area rug and dishware color. I would suggest using the white upholstered chair at either end of the table mixed with a set of aluminum chairs on both long sides. This look will give an eclectic designer feel and is perfect for a transitional or contemporary home.

Good Style Design: Lime and White Home Office

I am a big fan of a great home office. These days more and more people have the opportunity to work from home, and a dedicated space to focus on work is a must-have. A home office should be an easily organized, functional, and comfortable space that you actually want to spend time in. This light, bright home office scheme can brighten even the darkest of days. Accents of lime green tie the look together while adding an element of fun. We've all got work to do, so let's make the best of it!

Painted Walls: Chevron

The chevron (aka: zig-zag) is a well-known pattern that has definitely maintained its popularity over the years. One of my favorite ways to incorporate this pattern into a space is to paint it on an accent wall. It can instantly add bold personality to any room. A larger scaled chevron makes more of a statement while a smaller scaled version of the pattern is a bit more subtle. I would suggest sticking with lighter colors to achieve a calmer look that won't completely overpower your space.
