Springtime has arrived, or at least on our calendars! On this wet, grey Monday it’s hard not to feel a little hard done by on the springtime front. Dreary weather aside, this is the perfect time of year to do a little interior overhaul and add a pop of colour into the mix. There are a few easy & cost effective ways to do this without fully committing to that cerise pink wall.
Soft furnishings are a great option. Soft wool blankets, bright raw silk bolster cushions and throw pillows are small enough to commit to in bold patterns and bright colours, and can provide an accent that can change a whole room. Gallery wall updates with brighter prints & artwork is another way to inject a little colour easily and can be swapped out once the seasons change.
Spring florals involve the least commitment and are possibly the most beautiful seasonal touch. Mason jars, vintage teacups and milk bottles will always beat your run of the mill vase hands down! Etsy do a great selection of mason jars, not just in the usual clear glass but also in various paint dipped pastels and rose gold versions (although I love being able to double up the clear ones as cocktail glasses & candle holders).
Bright china tableware accents and table runners are brilliant for occasions like Easter lunch, and seeing as they’re not on display all of the time you can go as boldly patterned as you like. Pair these up with some mason jar florals for a gorgeously eclectic style. My springtime accents wishlist looks a little like this:
