Spring is upon us and I love nothing better than swapping out winter accessories in my home for bright, light soft furnishings.
I have put together a list of items I intend on buying this Spring to spruce up my house.
This is a given. Gone are the vases of dark autumnal colours and here are arrangements of yellow, pinks, purples and lots of green. I love having fresh flowers in the house especially around Spring time. It feels like we can emerge from hibernation and bloom. Flowers really uplift me and make a room so light and inviting.
During the winter I tend to burn a lot of candles. However the scent always stays vaguely the same – sweet food scents. When the seasons change I burn the fruity/sweet smells, I absolutely love my home smelling fresh and candles are a firm favourite all year round.
This may sound silly but I am drawn to pretty pastels, bright yellows, deep blues and greys during Spring. I think adding colour to your tableware during the warmer months is a great mood booster. Little serving dishes, plates, glasses and my favourite – mugs. I’m a sucker for a new cup to have my coffee in.
I have a throw on my sofa all year round. The days may be warming up but the evenings are still chilly and I love snuggling up in a fluffy throw. My children are obsessed with having some sort of blanket wrapped around them. They also love to lay out a throw and have picnics on them. These gorgeous throws from Cotton Traders are a perfect addition to my living room. The Madison Cotton Throw is light but still warm, I love the tassels and the neutral colour. I will be using this one in the garden during summer to keep on our garden furniture for those nippy moments when the sun goes down. The Tartan Sherpa Throw is just so soft and we have many a squabbles over who gets to wrap up in this one. Cotton Traders have an awesome website with so many home furnishings, bedding, clothes, cushions and so much more. They are so affordable and the quality is outstanding.
BEDDING & CUSHIONS
Even though we have a pretty grey bedroom, I do like to change up our bedding. I would usually go for bright whites, pale greys adding either a pastel throw or some bright cushions to dress the bed. Just changing the duvet cover can instantly brighten up a room and by adding cushions it really finishes it off.
Just by adding a few new accessories can really bring the sunshine into your home. I am longing for hazy sunny days when I can have all windows open, fresh flowers everywhere and a sweet smelling house.
