Now that spring has arrived, all eyes are on fancy florals (and we don’t just mean in the garden). Whatever your style, spring is the perfect time to introduce a little floral fancy into your space. A classic pattern for the bedroom and beyond, florals are ideal for bringing a carnival of color to any space and come in many styles from traditional and exotic to painterly and abstract. How will you embrace the blooms?
Country Garden Kitchens
Whether it’s large or small, modern or traditional, make the hub of your home bloom this season with something extra-special. MacKenzie-Childs have taken everything we know about mundane kitchenware and splashed it with flamboyant florals in a plethora of colors, making everyday cooking a joy. From colanders and butter boxes to spoon rests and sauté pans, it’s kitchenware so good you’ll want to cancel your weekend dinner reservations.
For the sweetest of dreams, fill your bedroom with a rainbow of florals. Lay your head in a field of daises whilst curling up under a plethora of pansies. Add an extra layer of comfort with a soft bedspread adorned with delicate petals. Perfect for keeping warm on colder nights or using as a thin cover as the mercury rises in the coming months. Inject a dose of feel-good design into your sleeping space with floral bed linen, whatever your style. Sweet dreams are made of this.
Tropic-Al Fresco Dining
As the temperature rises, we’re thinking about one thing: al fresco feasting. One of our favorite things to do in spring, whether it’s a picnic in the park or a barbecue in the back garden, al fresco entertaining is one of life’s simple pleasures. And we’ve found just the thing to make your al fresco party pop. Emma J Shipley for Jamida offers a fresh take on florals with their range of tropical melamine table accessories in a riot of colors. Made from melamine, this collection offers the look of ceramic with none of the vulnerability, so it’ll withstand any occasion. Outdoor entertaining? It’s a walk in the park.
Decorate with Fresh Florals
If you’re not looking to swap out your home decor, why not introduce fresh florals into your home? Not only are they beautiful to look at, having plants and flowers in your home provides an array of health benefits. Roses, Chrysanthemums, and Lisiantheuses improve mental wellbeing whilst Lavender, Peace Lilies, and Gerbera are natural mood boosters. Display a colorful bunch somewhere you’ll see them every day, like on a console in the hallway or on your bedside table. Choose your vase wisely to ensure each bunch has room to soak up the water and breath. Why not add a fresh bunch of flowers to your shopping list every week?
