Spring Time Inspirations
Feeling more like summer the last few weeks, it’s hard to not start getting excited by the beautiful sunsets, flowers, and bright colours popping up around us!
So… it feels only right to give you some Spring time colour and style inspiration for your house, garden or venue.
While researching and planning for a few current projects, including the re-style of a beautiful bed and breakfast room, I kept coming back to the same vibrant colours and floral influences, which evoke warm happy feelings, perfectly apt for this time of year!
These gorgeous cobalt blues, yellows and bright whites are the perfect combination to brighten up any dreary room, inside or out and now is the best time of year to do it.
I particularly like the accents of colours, such as the yellow doors (image from Elle, Norway), that work well when using such bold colours in a room. I am planning to use some of these (slightly Moroccan influenced) colours for the b&b project to really freshen and brighten an otherwise slightly dark room.
My other Spring influence at the moment is rather more obvious, but none the less important, and when displayed in interesting and quirky ways, can define a space…
The floral influence! Flowers can make a space come alive, especially if displayed in unusual holders. I like to take the unexpected and create it into something new. With displaying flowers, think old lemonade bottles, milk bottles, jugs, buckets, storage jars, unusual tall mugs… the list is endless! Chop large petalled flowers close to the stem and display in smaller vessels also.
I am very fond of the hanging flowers (image shown from fiftieswedding.com), and think this sort of arrangement would look great hanging in front of a large (without curtains) window.
Bringing the outdoors in like the wonderful tree growing behind the bed image (from Anthropologie) is another great idea to breath new life into a room.
So there we have a few little ideas and inspirations to get you thinking…
