We’re over half way through the month of February and the days are getting longer, the sun’s rays are brighter. Seasonal plants and flowers are already in bloom or are getting ready to do so…
Warm mornings are turning into sunny, somnolent afternoons which in turn are transforming into cool evenings – and there seems to be an expectant perceptible feel in the air – as we enter spring and await summer.
Just the time to shake off our heavy woollens, dark colours, rich fabrics and open up our windows for a bright, airy feel and bring out lighter linen and wraps to go with the season. It’s also the time to make some styling changes to your home.
Read on for our styling team’s recommendations for a spring makeover for your home.
A Whiter Shade of Pale
We’re crushing on all things white ! Inspired by the colours of our sun kissed land, from the ocean to the mountains, this natural palette feels earthy and breezy, conveying a relaxed and easy going vibe. Think all shades of white, earthy tones of our soil and fresh sea blue-green all combine to create a soothing colour story that works well for a decorating theme that celebrates the season.
Simple Floral Pleasures
A mix of both dainty and bold floral motifs and prints splashed across wallpaper, soft furnishings and linen are a great way to bring a vintage feel indoors. We’re also loving leaf and botanical patterns – especially on art, cushions and décor accents.
Knotting New Dreams
The painstakingly detailed craft of Macramé uses an intricate pattern of several knots – to give shape and form to the piece being created. A handmade accent that promises to add a boho vibe to your spaces.
Zen and the Art of Liquid Tranquillity
The time to achieve your personal state of Zen like tranquillity is now with your personal indoor waterfall or fountain – a great addition to a home or even a busy workplace. Bring home some surreal white noise !
Explore our metallic accents in quirky shapes with sharp detailing in contrasting materials such as brass, iron and powder-coated steel. Bulkier shapes are being passed over for leaner, lightweight styles and forms, where attention to the smallest detail is key
Exotic Birds and Butterflies
Birds and Butterflies and Nature go together – right ? Be they on whimsical prints, décor accents, garden accessories and more. One that creates a bold, bright splashy statement everywhere !
Spring Flowers are Simple Pleasures
Fresh flower arrangements are an easy way to make you feel you have your home (and life) in fabulous shape. One of life’s simplest pleasures – beautiful, seasonal flowers deserve charming, creative arrangements too. Display your selection in unusual pitchers, planters, jars – or even watering cans or crates for a unique yet rustic feel !
Be it a light refresh or a more extensive overhaul of your spaces – we’re confident that our spring decor ideas will have you in a happy and spring-like mindset all year long ! Bring home the greens.. Shop here for more… Check out our garden section for more.
