Home styling this racing season

Given it's race week we have themed our home styling tips around the two most popular race days, Melbourne Cup day and Derby Day! The following 2 looks can be applied to any of your home entertaining occasions!

Melbourne cup means colour!

As you would have seen on the TV and in the magazines over the last few days, Melbourne Cup is all about colour. You can easily refresh your home and get ready for Summer by adding a pop of colour to the rooms you will be entertaining in.

First start off by selecting 1 or 2 colours that will suit your furniture. You only really need to add 2 or 3 pieces to a room to really make an impact. Yellow and orange are both great Summer colours and work really well with greys, black, white and woods.

Next, have a think about adding 'accessories' to the room in your selected colour/s. By accessorising with smaller pieces you will be able easily change them when the seasons change. Some great home accessories are clocks, vases, even a throw.

ZONE 30cm Round Floating Clock

Our GALLERY range includes an array of coloured vases and decorative bowls which can be easily added to a room for a pop of colour and can be matched back to a clock from our ZONE range. If entertaining outside you can carry your feature colour outside with our ALFRESCO hurricane candle holders.

Looking for something more dramatic, combine our FIESTA range with pieces from our STUDIO range in matching, orange or green to create a bright bold table setting.

Styling with black and white

Derby Day is one of the most popular days on the racing calendar in Melbourne and the theme is black and white. Simple and sophisticated.

For a black and white theme for your next home event, mix and match serveware and accessories from our STUDIO collection in black and white. We even have black champagne and wine glasses in our BLACK collection!

You may want to have some fun by serving up treats in our CAROUSEL range. Our popcorn bowl is great for salad, ice-cream bowls to hold dips, plus our cake stand can be used to add some height to platters.
