11 Ways to Decorate Your Artist Table

Bring some inspiration to the dining table!

Original, colourful and creative, setting a table with painter’s inspiration must obviously take all the elements of a painting studio.

Brushes, palettes, colours, easels, plates, napkins, you can use all of these to impress your guests on a special evening with an arty table. It’s really easy to do yourself!
Idea 1: Colours
It is easier to decorate after selecting a nice theme and being inspired by its colour range. This one all started from a painting by Paul Cezanne. Blue, yellow, orange, brown, 4 main colours stand out at first glance and thus will guide the set-up of the table!

Idea 2:  Placemats
A real artist palette as a placemat. For my table, I prefer a clean wooden placemat, but you can set one with some splattered paint.

Idea 3:  Plates
Mismatched and hand-painted plates. The Royal Doulton Collection has captured my heart for the moment.

At your grocery corner.
