The easiest way to bring a little bit of spring to your home interior is with flowers and fresh blossoms. Flower arrangements come in all sorts of sizes and colours. There are two main directions, you might want to take. Option one has to be branches, and buds-these will surely remind you of everything blooming and coming to life. Why not go for pussy willow or the all favourite magnolia. Magnolias are flooding London at this time of the year and are possibly a perfect touch of nature for your London home. The second option is simple, yet romantic bunches of tulips, daffodils, peonies and poppies. These are delicate and unpretentious and will bring romance, freshness and softness to your interior.
Speaking of the actual flower arrangement, we will look back to our trip to Stockholm in February. We quickly noticed a trend of minimalistic, ikebana inspired bouquets. Simplistic, yet incredibly delicate and elegant.
Another direction you might want to take is block colour arrangements. Pick various kinds of flowers and stick to the same colour, using different shades of it. You would definitely end up with a designer looking, sophisticated and very special piece.
Spring Colour Palettes
If you would like to take a step further or you’re in the mood for a big project, painting and redecorating might be a spring project for you. Whether you would prefer to go for patterns-floral or geometrical, these are the trendy colour schemes that you must follow or at least incorporate in your London home decoration.
A white and blue-a classic combination for a relaxing atmosphere
- Muted Pastels-blush, peach or pistachio-to enhance the existing natural light in the space and create a soft, delicate and elegant environment
- Earthy Tones-to reconnect with the reviving nature and bring a rustic, natural, raw feel
- Navy blue, pink and plum-bold and striking, yet intimate. This eclectic choice of materials adds personality to a room.
- Beige and neutral shades-another classic, taking over the favourite grey and white-minimalistic, yet inviting, cosy and calm.
If you have family or friends over, why not decorate the table to make it feel even more special. Simple tricks and additions can make all the difference. Here’s our take on Easter decoration, plus some tips and tricks you might want to take into consideration.
Pick a colour scheme. We are going for pastels. Warm beiges have been around for a while, however, from this year, they are accompanied by milky ice cream tones. Inspired by the 70s. The new neutrals add softness and calmness to the quickly returning retro era. We got so excited we prepared two palettes for you to choose from-blush and emerald green. The colours have been all over the recent design exhibitions and are here to stay, as they indeed bring joy and happiness! Quirky and fun for the expressive maximalist and sophisticated and contemporary for all the minimalists out there. A perfect balance!
- Add that special touch. For us this was hand painting eggs. In some cultures painting Easter eggs is a family tradition. No matter if this is the case for you, it is a fun activity, that you can enjoy with your family, friends or colleagues-team building or bonding exercise, it will surely bring up your creative side and lift up your spirits. Plus you will end up with cute, unique, authentic decoration that makes your festive table extra special.
- Choose artisan looking stoneware as your tableware. Not only these look incredibly authentic but they add charm and unpretentiousness to your table. We have seen beautiful glazed ceramic pottery in coffee shops and restaurants a lot lately. It is about time these make a permanent move to our homes too!
- DIY a Centrepiece. We went simple with this one-a couple of cherry blossom branches and a few Easter egg baubles in pastel tones. This idea is for everyone who would like to stay in budget, yet wants to incorporate the festive mood into their interior space.
