With lockdown easing and warmer days on the way, things are looking up! There’s nothing quite like witnessing the first blooms of spring emerging from the cool earth, warming our hearts and giving us hope for new beginnings. Spring is a time for finding inspiration and embarking upon new plans and ventures and an interior design refresh is the perfect project for this time of year.
Capture that spring feeling
Flowers, blooms, florals, blossoms; words that bring about a sense of serenity and contentment. So, it’s no surprise that they can play a huge role in creating a warm and uplifting home aesthetic. Let’s look at some ways to introduce flower power into your home.
A fabulous way to bring the outdoors in; spring flower bouquets are not only gorgeous to look at but are a fun (and temporary) way to add a splash of colour to your interior. Lovely seasonal British flowers for spring include tulips, sweet peas, hyacinths and anemones which can be arranged to create beautiful spring flower arrangement in the home. To make a real statement, use branching greenery or a select few branches of cherry blossom or magnolia positioned in your favourite vase to create an architectural arrangement that will be admired by all. A beautiful flower vase like our cobalt blue stoneware vase, handmade to order by the talented Sophie Eveleigh, is the perfect way to create a striking focal point for your dining table arrangement.
Floral artistry has been around for thousands of years, with the civilisations such as the Ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans adorning themselves in symbolic fresh foliage and using it to decorate interiors. Flowery prints and organic motifs can have been used in fashion and homewares for millennia and have been in vogue in some shape or form ever since. If you are looking for wallpaper ideas and are drawn to an organic aesthetic, there are a whole host of options from traditional William Morris style Victorian wallpaper, to retro 1940’s cottage wallpaper and contemporary oversized floral mural wallpapers. For a less committed approach to flower prints in your home, floral canvas wall art can be a wonderful way to add a feminine touch to your bedroom, living room or hallway.
