MELLOW YELLOWghg201312913154

Use pops of yellow to give a sleek monochromatic setting a contemporary edge. A casual flower arrangement adds a laid-back touch to graphic black and white place settings, while loosely woven napkins contrast beautifully with sparkling glassware.


Team bright citrus hues, splashes of turquoise and striking geometric motifs to set the scene for a fun-filled day. Show off your quirky side by suspending bird houses from your chandelier and using a bird cage lampshade as table decor.

NATURALLY CHICghg2013129131559

Pair a sun-bleached palette with handcrafted tableware to create a simple, organic feel. Give natural tones a fresh energy by combining them with romantic flowers, like these pink peonies, then add a hint of glamour with the subtle sheen of recycled glassware and a candleholder made from copper pipes.
