The romantic table in five fantasies – Italian Cuisine

The romantic table in five fantasies

Flowers, fruits, delicate shades and precious fabrics. The table furniture Blumarine Home invites us to dream, linger and focus on the power of delicacy

After the energies dedicated to the preparation of the party table, the time has come to concentrate on the fantasies and atmospheres that will accompany us in the new year. Something that can pamper us when it's cold outside and a cup of boiling tea served in dining room becomes a privileged haven. But also flowers, fruits and colors to dream of the awakening of nature and celebrate its exuberance and perfection with refinement.
We chose five Blumarine Home fantasies to tell the different souls of the romantic table that moves delicately, but is also able to define the style of our dining room, characterizing it.

Vintage flavor

The grandmother's lace tablecloth, but also her wedding dress. This year the tablecloths chase a vintage dream and reveal the most romantic soul of cotton. The tone-on-tone patterns give different emotions and characterize the environment with subtle shades of pink pearl, touches écru and the elegance of absolute white. To emphasize the chic and retro style of this table, perfect backsplashes, candles and small glass containers will be perfect to store homemade cookies and sweets.

British style

A tea is never just a tea in England. It is above all a moment to devote to oneself, beyond the daily frenzy. But it is also the pleasure of welcoming, sharing and hosting. A social ritual that does not pass but in fashion and that continues to dictate style. To enter the right mood, we choose delicate floral patterns reminiscent of traditional English wallpaper and find the courage to bring to the table our complete tea service a small jug for milk, sugar bowl and saucers on which to serve a soft display cake. We will not forget the salted butter, fresh bread and different jams among which you can not miss the strawberries, the favorite of Queen Elizabeth II.

Do you remember when the shabby style peeked out on our tables? A pleasant invasion of natural fabrics, rustic desire, but also attention to detail. Today this inspiration is freed from the excesses of its debut and we find it declined in a contemporary and romantic table furniture that focuses on 100% linen and fantasies that seem stolen from a painting ad watercolor. To complete the decor, they must never be missing fresh or dried flowers and small decorations made with herbs. Even a simple place card made with twigs of sage and rosemary and cinnamon sticks tied with string will take us into the right atmosphere.

Free flowers

So free to grow in a night on the sides of the roads. To transform a field into a beautiful red sea where we want to dive. So proud to wither in a few minutes if collected. THE poppies embody the free spirit of flowers and invite us to think of a table without rules. A table that spreads its free spirit throughout the kitchen thanks to tea towels, coasters and placemats for breakfast and is inspired by the elegant power of flowers.

New classics

If we think back to the big family lunches of our childhood, we clearly see colorful tablecloths dominated by flowers and fruits. Intense colors, bright patterns and a bit of happy confusion. Today's table recovers the same intention, but lightens it with delicate designs that run only on the ends of the tablecloth and chase each other without creating excesses. A romantic table that dreams of trips in the woods, walks in the mountains and that keeps in its heart a small place for that magical moment of the year when summer rests and extends its hand to the sweetness of autumn.
