Creating a Light and Airy Home for Springtime

The days are getting lighter, the buds are peeking out on the trees, and there’s a definite feeling that spring is right around the corner.

If you’re anything like us, that springtime feeling has us rushing to try and capture some of that light and airy feeling in our homes. So why not join us as we throw the curtains wide and brush those dark wintery days away, with these top spring styling tips:

Combine lighter wood tones


Nothing helps to stave off dark days like light washes of colour, and embracing furniture and accessories with lighter wood tones is the perfect way to add extra brightness to a space. Pair spring blooms with the cheerful tones of natural oak. In our Country Cottage collection, we use a warm, smooth shade of cream paint to offset the wood accents. We love how the overall look of this bedroom is completed with our lime-washed Barcelona Lamp!

Bring the garden inside



There’s nothing quite like flowers to add a breath of fresh air to a room, and spring gives us the perfect opportunity to take advantage of all the great florals on show. Accessorise your living room and coffee table with a collection of your favourite bright plant pots and bouquets. Or, go double duty, like in this living room, which matches the floral cushions of our Amelia sofa with a well-dressed and lovely Country Cottage coffee table!

Embrace openness


Spring decorating and spring cleaning go hand in hand, so why not use this opportunity when your home is at its freshest to bring a little more openness and space to your interior design plans? Try bringing some everyday items out into the open and incorporate them as unique design features to bring a cheerful and playful air to a room. Instead of hiding your favourite bowls and kitchen utensils away in your Country Cottage sideboard, by using them as decorating, you’ll add an open, spring-y touch to your dining room.
