You can never have too many tables in your home, each displaying personal treasures and reflecting your personality.
“This beautiful painting of a Natal valley featuring autumn hues was the starting point for showcasing this client’s antique marble table adorned with a collection of their favourite items,” says uMhlanga interior designer Lisa Walters-Hunter.
“When styling a table I love to mix different items and play with materials. Here I have used varying heights, placing taller items at the back of the table where they can still be shown off to their full potential. In front I usually stagger lower items of coloured glass, ceramic, bone and resin – more delicate textures.
“This particular client has an affinity to animals – which can be seen in the collection of items on display – and which can also be beautifully combined. I love mixing animals – seen here are leopard, birds and squid. As long as these items are tonal, have fun and make your home a reflection of yourself and your personality.”
