Gwyneth Paltrow's Easter Lunch Table Setting

Easter is nearly here and this weekend is the perfect time to start planning your Easter lunch.  I'm going to be taking my inspiration from Gwyneth Paltrow and her table scape she created for Remodelista (PS - I have such a big crush on Gwyneth, please can we be BFFs?)  She choose a fresh take on traditional and the colour palate of robin's egg blue, lilac, pale pink and white.  There are SO MANY details I love  - the egg name tags, the potted pansies in the bowl and the long tapered candles.  I mean seriously, it is so beautiful!!! What inspiration are you picking up on for your Easter table?

The New Book From Good Bones Great Pieces

Do your read Good Bones Great Pieces?  They are one of my favourite blogs for a brilliant take on traditional pieces done in modern ways.  I've just pre ordered their book and I'm so excited to receive it in May.  A labour of love for over a year, Suzanne and Lauren take a look at the 7 pieces every home needs to stay stylish and functional.  The Ladies Home Journal did a sneak peak and I loved checking it out.  I'm dying to have a love seat just like the one below - so lovely!

Serena & Lily - A Kindred Spirit

My darlings, it's not often that you find a kindred spirit but I feel that's exactly what Serena & Lily is to my home decoration style.  Bright and fun in colour palates I can only dream of, the look is a modern take on traditional. Their catalogue is a visual feast and well worth a check out.
