Hi friends. Are you as excited as I am? Can you feel it? The tingle in the air? The slight scent on the breeze? It is here- Spring has arrived. With tomorrow being the official ‘sping day’, I thought I would provide you with some inspiration and tips on how to bring spring into your home.
Spring is a time when nature awakens, when colours burst forth and blooms open. It is a time for new beginnings and do-overs. Based on this, I have designed ‘Spring inspiration’. This interior is a bright, natural and contemporary design featuring all the best the season has to offer; natural wood elements, bright pops of colour, flowers and fun. This look has been on the up lately, with many magazines featuring bold prints and colours as discussed in this post.

Spring is a fun time and many people use this time to splurge on colour in their home. Yet, some of us tend to be partial to a more neutral, calm, relaxed or sensible palette. Does that mean that you are excluded from the fun of Spring decor? Definitely not! Here are some tips on bringing the fun in, while being true to your personal style.
A very easy way of adding colour is by displaying objet. This can be done on open shelving, racks, as vignettes, in the kitchen… the list is endless. Choose objects that are in the same colour family as your scheme. Yet try to add some fun by going a few shades darker or lighter (or a combination of both) with these objet.
Here is an example of introducing colour to your kitchen. By displaying bright, print or decorated items that you already own, you are redoing your look for less.
Another easy way of adding colour is through scatters, flowers, books and even fruit! Pick these items in bright colours, pack them out and voila’! Your space has been transformed without major ‘surgery’.
If you are more adventures and happy to spend a bit more, you can consider reupholstering two chairs in a bright colour. Combine this with a few small accessories like lampshades and art (prints needn’t cost a fortune) and your space has been transformed.
Floral arrangements are probably the cheapest and easiest way of welcoming spring. These blooms can be from the market or simply a few sprigs from the garden. Arrange them in a collection old glass jars and you are ready to go. If you want to be extra creative, buy mat white spray paint and spray old jam jars white. Can you say bespoke votive?
Lastly, consider bringing spring into your bedroom with indoor plants, a new throw and scatters. These small changes can have a huge impact on your inner sasanctuary; a room that should always be comfortable, personal and special.
How have you brought spring into your space? I would love to hear your ideas.
