Drawing inspiration from nature and the earth’s mineral compositions, Love Milo designer, Nicki Ellis finds the harmony between line and form; juxtaposing the imperfect elements with handmade elements to create something unique. “Our designs are quite visually surprising. When placed against a white setting or clean background for example, the designs definitely catch your eye.”
“The idea with this nature-inspired table setting is to mix black, white and gold with a touch of greenery, using succulents rather than the traditional Christmas flowers. The mix of branch and bird runners with napkins work well together to add a burst of pattern and contrast. We have used black plates to add boldness, and accents of gold cutlery and wooden plates for a unique, natural and contemporary festive season look. The setting is then finished off with soya candles to add a warm festive season glow,” says Ellis.
In today’s world, many don’t have the time to stop and enjoy nature, so the aim with a nature-inspired setting is to enjoy the benefits of being surrounded by the beauty of the environment and to feel energised when interacting with it.
