According to Pantone, our colour scheme for Spring is a fruity cocktail of al things bright! Take in a fresh breathe of Mountain green air with the Pantone 8-0107 Kale and bask amongst the sunshine with the always sunny Pantone 13-0755 Primrose Yellow. Varying from earthy warm tones to lollipop brights, you can brighten up the house with a few colourful pops of colour, in the form of cushion covers! Inexpensive and versatile, with every season that passes you can change the entire look of a lounge room with just a few swaps of the cushions!
Nothing brightens up the home more than a fresh bouquet of spring blooms! In Spring you’ll find florals in a range of colours, varying from everlasting Ranunculus and pink Peonies perfectly suited for the coffee table, teamed with violet delphiniums and fuchsia Orchids setting the warm and welcoming tone for the bedroom. For a more classic look you can opt for the delicate Lily of the Valleys to suit any room as well as the uniquely shaped Blushing Brides to create an exciting sense of creativity to a small office space. With all these beautiful blooms in season for Spring, they won’t be hard to find!
If you haven’t heard so already, table runners are a delightful small way to style up your everyday dining table! A sleek runner with just a simple vase of flowers can look effortlessly chic yet bring the entire room together! Whether its purchased in store, online or you have enough seamstress skills to make one of your own, you are sure to wow guests the minute they walk in the door in such an effortless style!
Get the family and friends together for a spring feast and ensure you’re up to date with the seasonal spring dishes this year! Entertain with a light and festive picnic, decorated with the most perfect picnic rug, beautiful cushions and throws, wooden tray tables, lanterns and more to set the tone. Best of all, impress your guests with outstanding seasonal dishes, our favorite this month to be a strawberry, avocado and spinach salad, dressed with poppy seeds and honey. Paired with home made raspberry iced tea in decorated jam jars and mini cherry pies for desert, you have the perfect spring feast!
A great way to revamp a modest looking lounge is with a colour pop of a statement rug! If you prefer to focus on a stylish texture or a bold colour, either way you will spice up the space and is a great way create a real signature style of your own. If you’re worried about too much colour clashing, focus on getting a neutral colour, think grey, white or beige and ensure it features lots of different textures or patterns to keep it statement and striking.
