5 WAYS TO REVITALISE YOUR DINING SPACE IN 2018


In need of a new look for 2018? We’ve put together our top 5 ways to revitalise your dining space with Royal Doulton tableware and homeware pieces, plus trends we’re loving right now…



1 | KEEP IT BALANCED


5 Ways To Revitalise Your Dining Space In 2018


2018 is all about shareable food.

Dining at home is about to become a more relaxed family affair – with more people creating smaller dishes of meats, veggies, salads and sides, everyone is adjusting their own ‘balanced’ portion sizes, rather than serving up one plate. We love this idea of sharing food and there’s no better way to let the family help themselves than with tableware in a variety of sizes and colours for different dishes.

Inspired by Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant in London, keep things balanced with Bread Street tableware designed by chef Ramsay with Royal Doulton. It’s a casual collection with a side order of colour that you can mix and match. Start with a natural colour palette of slate grey and add fresh white to create a balanced dining atmosphere - ready for a light lunch.

For a simple and healthy Sunday brunch, try our delicious Sundays Worth Sharing recipe.





2 | SHOW SOME LOVE


5 Ways To Revitalise Your Dining Space In 2018


For the love of good food and family moments - express your sense of style, fun and family life with bold tableware that speaks for itself.

Using hand-drawn artwork inspired by Ellen’s favourite prints – the ED Love Gift Sets Collection in blue brings to life the sentiment of ‘love’ in uniquely different illustrated designs to create a statement in your dining space. Adding accents to existing tableware or other ED Collections allows you to revitalise your table and create a new look that all the family will fall in love with.

“I should warn you, they're so beautiful that you'll want to gobble up all your food as fast as you can just to see the plates again” - Ellen DeGeneres





3 | TRY THE GLOBAL NOMAD TREND


5 Ways To Revitalise Your Dining Space In 2018


It’s an interiors trend that focuses on creating a well-travelled home. With so many cushions and soft furnishings available in the Nomad style (think urban edge, global-inspired patterns) it’s easy to recreate this look in your own home - including your dining space.

The ED Ellen DeGeneres Cave Painting Accents is the perfect tableware collection if you like the Nomad look, but want to keep it simple and versatile. Featuring primitive style animal drawings in taupe, including a horse, goat, buffalo and bird combined with a lined border design – this range is inspired by Ellen’s appreciation of mid-century artists, natural materials and a love of handmade African themes. Mixed with the other ED Ellen DeGeneres ranges (we love to pair with ED Brushed Glaze Charcoal Grey) and balanced with added ‘urban’ accessories, this trend inspires a modern global dining experience.





4 | REFRESH WITH REFINED COASTAL


5 Ways To Revitalise Your Dining Space In 2018


We’re going to see the Refined Coastal trend everywhere this Spring/Summer. How is it refined? It’s all about stylish ocean-inspired pieces in crisp white glazes with sea blue lines and textures!

Pacific is our ultimate ‘coastal living’ collection – with bold indigo markings inspired by the seashore, textured shells and crashing waves – it aims to transform your everyday dining experience into a laid-back nautical tale in an urban setting.

Our verdict on this nautical trend? It’s a must-have if you want to create a look that’s fun and unique. The ‘refined’ element means pieces will sit comfortably in many dining settings.



5 | ADD A HOME BAR


5 Ways To Revitalise Your Dining Space In 2018


With more of us entertaining at home, update your home with the most popular trend this year: the Home Bar.

It’s not about recreating that 1970s stand-alone bar or hostess cart, but styling an area of your dining space into an easy entertaining area for get-togethers in your own home. The best thing about a DIY home bar is that you can set it up almost anywhere with minimal effort. All that’s needed is a space big enough to add a few shelves for displaying bottles, carafes, glassware and bar equipment; plus, a unit to mix and pour drinks for your guests.

When it comes to the best home bar glassware – the R&D Collection is perfect. Designed for the ‘inner mixologist’ all three patterns – Neptune, Highclere and Radial – come in hi-ball and tumblers that can be mix and matched to add authenticity and character to your bar.
