Spring embodies all things fresh, inspiring and new, making it the perfect time to make subtle changes to your environment with the help of greenery, light soft furnishings and all things pastel everything.
We might be breaking free of our homes soon (the countdown is ON), but that sure as heck doesn’t mean we’re not committing to the yearly Spring interiors refresh that makes the change of seasons really hit home (literally). Spring embodies all things fresh, inspiring and new, making it the perfect time to make subtle changes to your environment with the help of greenery, light soft furnishings and all things pastel everything. Jewel and rich tones have had their day till the leaves turn brown and crisp, as Spring brings a promise of light and bright everything which couldn’t be more needed after a long winter.
This Spring is perhaps a little different from previous years too, with the renewed sense of optimism and hope for what the year ahead will hold. Maybe it comes in the form of serving dishes for the dinner parties you can’t wait to have, jugs and glassware for the endless cocktails you’ll be serving to your pals or small but welcome interior changes that will make the last stint at home a little more bearable, this year’s Spring refresh feels perhaps more poignant than ever.
Although we’ve been spending more time at home than ever in the past year, my ability to keep my space zen and tidy has been a struggle, so any opportunity for a Spring clean is extremely welcome. One of the parts of my space that is forever overflowing is my book collection, as without a bookcase or good storage system (yes I’ve lived here for 15 months and still haven’t put up a shelf) there are forever piles of books in every crevice of my bedroom. This bookcase from La Redoute is a pricey pick but I absolutely love how it adds a whole new dimension to a room whilst being subtle enough to fit into most decor. I’m still working on my wind-down routine so a hot shower, book by a reading lamp before being tucked up in bed with some scatter cushions is the inspiration behind the rest of my picks. I need them all!
Having moved house in January I’ve been buying tons of bits for the home this year, so a couple of these things I’ve purchased for myself the last couple of weeks. I’m obsessed with Matilda Goad and I’m pining over this vase (which would go perfectly in my house!) I recently bought a Koketit print to sit above my bed and I also love this one, she’s a fab artist who is great to follow on IG too. Always in the market for a good cushion, this one from Trouva is gorgeous. I picked up this blanket for our new bed we’re waiting for as I think it would go perfectly!
I love a little seasonal refresh to liven up the living space again! New bedding for me is the epitome of Spring, a fresh set and a good Spring clean makes me feel like a new woman. Oliver Bonas have some really nice bits in at the moment too, I love their new storage baskets which have pops of blue and pinks which are perfect colours for Spring. I’m always looking for new additions for my wall art and found this lovely floral print on Etsy which I think would look lovely all year round, but especially seasonal now!
I’m low key obsessed with green at the moment – it must be something to do with the time of year and just wanting to fill our homes with as much nature and calm as possible but all I know is I’m sprung. These floral porcelain plates would elevate my elevenses perfectly and the Toast duvet is nothing short of a bedscape dream. I’ve also got weirdly into stripes and often find myself thinking about the “Waiting” print from Poster Club.
Spring has sprung and that inevitably means I’ll want to switch everything around. I cannot get enough of daffodils and buy then literally once every few days, so I am in need of some new Vases. I also am trying to add to my vinyl record collection so have my eyes on an organiser for the records. As well as needing a bar kart for all the fun things I’m going to be doing when we’re out of this. Transformation here we come.
