At long, long last, winter has come to an end and spring is finally here! With the Easter bank holiday approaching, now’s the perfect time to get creative and begin opening up your home to let spring in.
There are lots of lovely ways to add a touch of spring to your home (don’t worry, we’re not going to suggest spring cleaning – though if you do feel like having a spruce, check out our tips here), from fresh flowers to bright colours and light pastels, you can add ‘instant-Spring’ to your home using just a few home accessories!
Pretty in Pastels
Pastels needn’t be chintzy. Part of the Simply Ceramic range, the Vintage Rose and Olive Branch reed diffusers combine pastels with on-trend metallic and delicate nature-inspired patterns. You can inject a soft, springtime feel without fully redecorating, using pastel accessories around your home.
(L-R) Vintage Rose with Rose, Olive Branch with Jasmine & Tuberose, each £24.99 from The Simply Ceramic range.
Freshen Up With Fragrance
Is there anything more evocative of springtime than the smell of fresh flowers? The sweet, familiar scent of bluebells is immediately reminiscent of taking a spring walk, whilst the scent of fresh bouquets of peonies emits a springtime airiness perfect for cleaning away the winter cobwebs!
The Brightest Bright’s
Springtime is a happy time! Save the dark, warming shades for winter, it’s time to welcome in bright, cheery colours. This doesn’t mean transforming your home into some kind of fun house, but keeping a vase of fresh flowers, bowls of fruit, or just bright bold accessories can make all the difference!
Add a burst of spring colour with the Purple Rain mosaic oil burner, £13.49.
Inspired by Nature
While it may not be quite warm enough to start living in the garden yet, you can certainly bring the outdoors in. Wildlife motifs and floral décor are a classic but timeless way to let your home know that spring has sprung! The Two Little Birds ceramic reed diffuser makes nature centre stage with a bold illustration in monochrome.
(L-R) Dreamcatcher with Fresh Linen, Two Little Birds with Fresh Linen, both £24.99 from the Simply Ceramic range.
