What Houzz contributors are saying:
Furnish with fresh flowersBefore you welcome your guests, welcome spring in what will hopefully become a new-season ritual of fresh flowers on all your tables. Flowers sometimes seem like a luxury, but it’s remarkable how much happiness a pretty vase of blooms can bring to your room. For an authentically British bouquet in March and April, look for tulips, ranunculus, hyacinths, lily of the valley, bluebells, irises and, of course, joyous daffs. A vase of flowers on your dining table is an instant centrepiece and it’s such an easy way to get maximum hosting points for minimal effort.
Mix things upRepainting existing furniture is a staple for refreshing interior décor, but give this rule a twist by not limiting yourself to one colour. The combination of black and yellow here is an unexpectedly striking complement to a rustic interior, and a creative way to incorporate the mismatched chair trend while maintaining an overall cohesive look.
Relax with a spring brunchIf you are being treated to an Easter lunch out with friends, then you can ease yourself into holiday mode with a relaxing breakfast or brunch. Simply fill vases to brimming with huge clusters of sunshine yellow flowers and set the table with a fresh pot of tea, boiled eggs and a rack of hot buttery toast.
