In my living room I have a antique cedar round table that seats four and we don't use it that much to eat at so I usually have books and lovely objects on it most of the time. It is a nice area to sit and read. I have a very old crewel-work fabric draped over it at the moment, which was an old curtain from an deceased estate. Which I think looks gorgeous and I just adore the mix of soft colours. The table sits in front of my Armoire that Andrew, my husband made. It was a gift from Andrew when we became engaged and I adore it so much. The Armoire is totally hand made and hand carved with two inlaid stars in the panelled doors and made from a light yellow looking timber called Yellow Caribbean Pine and it has never been polished as we decided to just let it age naturally.
"When I set my table, I usually start with the cloth, china and glassware and then decide what I would like in the middle and I love to mix old and new objects together and have more than one centre piece, sometimes many. In this case I had the Lilac in the two little tin urns and some in this adorable little flower girl figurine.
I will often pick bunches of lilac and put it in urns outside as well.
And more lilac in my back sunroom sitting beautifully with my ginger jars.
Also... If you have minute to spare, I have a questionnaire on my blog (left) today asking why you visit my blog, I have had numerous business meetings this week and I have been asked many times to describe my blog and which category does it fit in to, interiors, weddings, gardens etc. Well, I couldn't answer as you know I cover everything I love, but, they are waiting for my answer. Would you mind ticking a box (or more) and tell me why you visit my blog or just please leave a comment for me. With thanks, xx Coty
