Give your home's interior a touch of spring

One of the most inexpensive ways to make a home feel more spring like is to spruce it up with a splash of this seasons spring paint colours, such as a burst of Blushing Pink from Farrow and Balls used as an accent colour, set off against neutral shades such as whites and pale greys. Fresh Green by Farrow and Ball can be applied to walls and woodwork to create a dramatic one-tone feel to a room, a technique that work especially well in period setting.

This season it’s all about floral prints threaded through soft furnishings from curtains to cushion covers, if you are looking for something less flouncy than those typically found in vintage patterns then Liberty Art Fabrics have combined illustrative geometric leaf pattern fabric with blocks of colour reminiscent of pop art meets nature in their Paradise a tana lawn cotton fabric. If you are looking for a print more remindful of a floral orchestra then you could check out their Small Artists bloom B Tana Lawn Cotton, the artist has captured the essence of a summer meadow through the use of oil paints.

It could be seen as a fashion interior faux pas to introduce dark colours into spaces where light is sparse, but darker colours can make these spaces more dramatic, this combined with furniture painted in accent colours such as lime green can work really well. By placing spring flowers in a pot or pots on top of furniture you could bring a bit of spring indoors, and they would work really well as a contrast to the deeper shades.

If you would rather go for interior colours which are less somber then Narcissi yellow mixed with deep purple tones found in Irises could give your home a bit of spring joy. Pops of red can also work well when used on single item pieces of furniture such as armchairs, or used across kitchen accessories.
