COVER: Villeroy&Boch, Spring Fantasy set
With scalloped borders representing flower corollas, a handful of bright yet subtle blossoms and a dash of sky blue, the table rings in the spring and gets ready to celebrate the first rays of sun and the upcoming Easter holidays with carefree happiness. Bowls, eggcups and a cake stand decorate their porcelain with bucolic yet lively designs, while the candleholders trade ceramic’s white for the multifaceted transparencies of glass in order to add a touch of understated elegance. Nearby, the brushstrokes of sky blue decorate the plates and napkins, while the cutlery goes for the golden gleams of the sun. The end result is an explosion of aromas, flavors and informal conviviality.
The floral cake stand.
The “scalloped” border, representing a flower petal, is decorated with small wildflowers and framed by a thin yellow edging. All it takes is a cake stand like this to bring a breath of fresh air to the table.
The blue plates.
Pastel blue, delicate and discrete, it is the perfect tone to freshen up the table setting, even on a more classic table.
The golden cutlery.
Modern, sleek and with a golden touch which adds an ancient look, they turn every lunch into a grand occasion.
