The ELLE Decoration team gathers to break bread at a table set with Country Road’s winter collection, in which softer pale greys and blues layer onto a base of warm neutrals and modern brass detailing.

The secret to effortless entertaining? Use a combination of dinnerware and decorative pieces. Mix contrasting textures such as ceramic, terrazzo, wood and metal. And for the perfect final touch, add gold cutlery to elevate your table.


When the temperature drops, we turn to our favourite pieces for comfort and warmth. Emilie opts for a versatile fluffy knit in the season’s it-colour, forest green. Tarryn’s choice is a 90s-style denim overall paired with a soft, dusty pink knit. Chunky knits get an update with playful back detail – Jo’s go-to pick.
