It’s nearly spring – hurray! That means that we’ll soon be seeing lovely flowers blooming everywhere, the weather will get warmer, and winter will finally be over. Flowers go hand in hand with spring, which is why we’ve chosen to focus on them for today’s blog post. Let’s take a look at how you can introduce springtime florals into your home.
Pick flowers from your garden
It’s no problem if you can’t afford to keep buying fresh flowers – head out to your garden and pick some instead. Simply arrange them in old jam jars, like in this image from housetohome.co.uk, to make the perfect springtime table centrepiece. You can even coordinate your tableware to match, using shades of yellow and green.
These pretty petal patterned cushions, seen on marthastewart.com, add a touch of femininity to any living room. We love the cornflower blue and olive green combination – it works really well against a neutral backdrop. The only issue we can see with these cushion is that they’re far too pretty to sit against – but we can live with that.
Add some extra cheer to your bedroom with a ditsy floral printed headboard. We found this pretty bed on countryliving.com. Keep the rest of your bed linen neutral – we love the soft pastel shades in this image – they really complement the colours of the headboard. And to add some intrigue, mix and match your prints, like with the striped chair cushion and polka dot wallpaper. It makes for an eclectic, whimsical room.
Hang flowers on the wall
Of course, you can always incorporate floral designs into your wall hangings too, like in this picture we found on bhg.com. You can make this decoupage artwork yourself at home – simply print out some outlines of flowers or cut out images from magazines and arrange them onto a sheet of ivory coloured card. All you have to do then is frame your work and proudly display it for all to see.
