Christmas is over, the decorations are down, our homes are feeling a little bare.
With the cold weather, post-holiday and post-Christmas blues, we are all starting to think about what’s in store for 2018, whether it’s holidays, work goals or home projects to name a few.
As you can probably guess, my aim here is to provide you with some ideas and inspiration for your homes leading into the Spring season.
Let’s start with… Flowers. The surest sign that warmer weather is coming.
Spring is such a lovely time of year as all the trees start to show colour and life again. The sight of the colour of Spring flowers everywhere is uplifting and such a contrast from the grey and brown wintery colours. As so many flowers come into bloom in the Spring you will be spoiled for choice and will successfully find arrangements to suit your colour scheme and style at home. The colour of flowers leads me onto…
Pastels have been a home decor trend for some time now, not just for the Spring season. If you haven’t joined the Pastels hype yet, it’s not too late! Use the turn of the season as an excuse to join us.
Yellow. A colour of happiness, happiness in the form of warm sunshine and saying goodbye to winter (British weather dependent…)
The copper, bronze and gold metallics add a stylish warmth. The warm colours are definitely necessary at this time of year while there is still a chill in the air. Copper combined with a candle – a double whammy!
Spring feelings can show both inside and outside your home. Your gardens will start to become a little more colourful as the weather gets warmer and the trees begin to blossom. With some rustic plant pots, you can house some Spring flowers – daffodils, tulips, snowdrops, hyacinths, heather…the list could go on and on.
It’s pretty clear from most of these points that one of the biggest ways to make your home feel more Spring-like and less Winter-like is with wonderful nature.
I would love to see your take on Spring home decor, too, so please share!
