What a splendid time to be alive. Even if you can't quite experience the bloom of spring's flowers here in Singapore, you can very well inject the romanticism associated with the season of beginnings in your home. And what better to serve those in-season, air-flown goodies such as asparagus, cherries, artichokes and such (thank you, Cold Storage) on the new range of cookery from Crate&Barrel.

We spotted some painted-on florals on salad plates, luxe throws in sunset shades and bursts of colour that make hosting just a tad more cheerful. Our top tip? Layer solid-coloured plates with patterned ones for added pizzazz. Meanwhile, the colour blue, as the French know, remains the warmest colour. Browse our picks below.
