The fabulous Chelsea Flower Show’s on and here at Country Days we’re inspired by gardening gorgeousness.
Bringing the outdoors in is big in interiors at this time of year, and here’s the perfect way to do it by turning your conservatory into a country dining room. This dreamy space has a magical quality that makes it the perfect backdrop to tea parties and special celebrations.
The furniture in the scheme takes its inspiration from the room’s white framework. Scandi-style pieces (the Dahlia Ivory collection from Marks & Spencer), which can be used outdoors too, keep the look light and airy, while the square design mirrors the shape of the windowpanes.
Pretty floral fabrics are used to add softness and link with the garden theme. Mixing and matching fabrics in similar colourways is a key trend and here a ditsy floral tablecloth is teamed with a jolly vintage-style floral on the seat pads. Rose pink tableware (from Marks & Spencer) takes pride of place on the tabletop, along with the jugful of blooms.
Big up the natural element with trails of ivy (faux ivy can be used to achieve the same effect), while a candelabra decorated with ivy and fresh flowers makes a stunning centrepiece over the table.
