There’s something about spring that brings an extra zest for life isn’t there?
As soon as daffodils start appearing along the roadsides, excitement starts building for the new spring and summer seasons ahead.
Spring signals change, and whilst we instinctively reach for lighter clothing, the brighter, warmer days inspire us to freshen up our homes too.
Switching up your interior decor or accessories seasonally can give your home a new lease of life. That said, I’m certainly not one to promote unnecessary purchases, rather I favour sustainability both around the home and in beauty, but, I do believe that making small changes can work wonders for us.
Simple changes can really improve your well-being by bringing a renewed love for your home and surroundings.
Recently, I went through the “everything must be white” phase and came out the other side. However, I’m now leaning towards colour and of course with bold and darker interior colours trending right now, navy blue keeps catching my eye. It’s funny how a colour palette you may have previously sniffed at, suddenly becomes appealing.
Put away the candles, tea lights and cosy throws and swap them for more appropriate spring accessories. Take inspiration from nature and bring the outside in.
I’m still enjoying faux (and real) foliage. My latest find is a gorgeous faux topiary tree which I bought from IKEA for just £9 and of course, I had to have the pot as well – £4. If you’d like to learn more about my love of foliage have a read of my spring interior trends post, where I covered the subject in more detail.
Just after Christmas we cleared out our cluttered home office and gave it a lick of paint which was long overdue. I needed somewhere specific to focus on my work and in turn, be more productive. At the time I was still in the “white phase” and chose bright white for the walls, however, now I’m pondering over a splash of colour. I quite fancy a navy blue chair to go with my white desk, or I may even repaint one of the walls in a mid-grey or a grown-up pink” – think fresh plaster or Calamine. Failing that, some sultry, blue-toned prints for the walls would work.
