We all love spring which brings with it warmer days, new blooming buds, and birdsong. Spring is a time of renewal and awakening, so it’s no wonder that many of us feel a desire to refresh our homes and gardens at this time of year.
We’ve come up with some simple ways to bid farewell to winter and liven up your home and garden with colour and scent in time for spring.
Create a sunny spring interior
Nothing feels more like spring than pastel hues and floral patterns. Why not give your living room a fresh update with a mix of pastel soft furnishings and floral patterned accessories? Think lilac or baby pink cushions, or mint green and light blue throws over your existing sofas for a fresh colour palette. Accessorise your coffee table or mantel with floral teacups and cut spring blooms like daffodils, tulips and hyacinth in our Tall Green Leaf Ceramic Plant Vase to add English charm. Our Woven Basket Indoor Plant Pots also make great storage options and connect your living room with the outdoors by featuring natural materials.
Brighten up your kitchen with fresh flowers that will enhance your spring home. Why not create a floral arrangement and centrepiece using our Ellham Metal Windowsill Farmhouse Trough Planter filled with the bright colours of pansies and violas that can sit proudly in your dining room on the table or sill?
A bedroom should be a space which feels calming and helps promote restful sleep. There’s no denying adding a little greenery into your home decor is a great springtime touch. Green foliage blends in beautifully with the neutral tones of the home, not only will plants bring pops of colour to the bedroom but they will introduce some health benefits too.
Succulents are a beautiful and stylish addition whilst being easy to care for and fit on bedroom window sills. Why not pair Echeveria or Crassula with our Aztec White Indoor Ceramic Plant Pot With Wooden Feet for an effortless spring style?
Aloe vera’s long fleshy green leaves make a statement, as well as being renowned for having medicinal properties. Style with our Clara Concrete Grey Indoor Plant Pot for a contemporary look in the bedroom or add the bright colours of our Terra Gloss Collection to a Philodendron to bring a standout feature to any bedside corner or cabinet.
Bring the indoors out
Sunlight is one of the best mood boosters available. With homeowners now bringing the indoors outside, we are seeing the decoration of front and back gardens in the same way you would add personality to your home.
Let’s start with some ideas for decorating the front door for the spring season. Bringing fresh blooms and colour to your door decor is an instant way to refresh for the warmer days ahead. The coming weeks are the ideal time to stock up on spring flowers for garden containers and planters. The Orson SquareTerracotta Plant Pots with fresh spring annuals will create an enticing entrance? You could also make a pastel coloured floral wreath out of fresh flowers to add the wow factor to your home.
People have increasingly been reconnecting with the outdoors and nature and now want to give their garden a cosy feel, making it the “fifth room” of their home.Spring is the perfect time to introduce luxurious and comfortable furniture sets, ambient lighting, and outdoor living accessories like fire pits and heaters to fully appreciate the seasons ahead.
Turn your outdoor rooms into a beautiful get-together living space with our Richmond 4 Seater Garden Furniture Set With Cushions which is practical, comfortable, stylish and perfect for large families or outdoor entertaining with friends. Create a relaxed spring mood, with the Repton Eucalyptus Wood Table & Two Chairs Garden Bistro Set is ideal for informal and tranquil evenings.
For a spring themed garden, consider layering a few floral blankets and adding pastel coloured outdoor pillows for extra colour and comfort for you and your guests. Our Colourful Fringed Garden Parasol comes in the perfect colourway to bring that springtime feeling to your outdoors and offer shade from the sun's warming rays.
Make use of natural wood materials and neutral table runners or placemats with bright and scented spring flowers to create an eye-catching and inviting dining area.
When the spring evenings hit, transform your outdoor space into a magical wonderland with the right lighting. Strings of fairy lights, solar stake lights or lanterns can really set the mood. Our Bee Solar Lights and Warm White Solar Bulb Garden String Lights work for every spring gathering, adding an relaxing ambiance that can stay outside all year round.
It’s always worth remembering that spring evenings get cold and you will need to keep warm after the sun goes down. Outdoor heaters are popular options and our Candela Pendant Electric Patio Heater is perfect to take the chill off on summer evenings, and can be hung from a parasol, gazebo, awning or patio roof to instantly create a warming atmosphere, without taking up much space.
Fire pits and patio fireplaces provide a focal point, a central gathering place and a welcoming environment at parties and are ideal for lighting after dark. The Hoole Cesta Steel Fire Basket is compact in size, so is ideal for smaller outdoor spaces, whilst our Wakehurst Outdoor Fireplace With Wood Storage is a show stopping piece for your patio, allowing you to watch the dancing flames whilst producing radiant warmth during the chilly spring evenings.
