Spring is synonymous with new beginnings and therefore the perfect time for an interior update. The bursting buds and blossoming trees have certainly put us in a more colourful frame of mind, so how about taking the plunge this spring and injecting some colour into your home? We’ve put together some inspiration below.
A taste of the tropics
Designer, Clarissa Hulse, has collaborated with Blinds 2Go to turn her fabulous designs into blinds and curtains (launched this spring). If you fancy a taste of the tropics to revitalize your interiors, Clarissa has used a single tonal palette of greens to add freshness and vitality with this Tropical Leaves Moss Roman Blind (from £31.15).
Dial up the grey
Brighten up your life with a striking statement chair to enhance a grey or neutral interior. We love this vibrant yellow Mentosa Armchair from My Furniture (from £294.99), pictured here with the same design in grey. The strong sculptural form has an eye-catching external frame in powder-coated brass and a comfortable sprung seat in luxe velvet.
Make a statement
How about a bold, floral, feature wall to brighten your living space? We’ve found this gorgeous Voyage of Discovery wall mural by Andrea Haase for Wallsauce, showcasing beautiful orchids, a tropical bird and historic map print.
Paint the town…green
An easy and cost-effective way to brighten your interiors is to paint your cupboard doors. We’ve fallen in love with this gorgeous, mint green kitchen from @kfiszerfoto, shared by @period_living. This uplifting colour will certainly put a spring in your step.
Add a burst of sunshine
Clarissa Hulse has used her signature ombre style to create these fabulous curtains to bring a burst of sunshine to your room, whatever the weather. The watercolour ombre deepens as it moves down the curtain into a vibrant ochre, beautifully complemented by blooming dill flowers. These Dill Ochre Curtains (from £45.55) and Ombre Ochre Roman Blinds (from £31.15) are both available from Blinds 2Go.
Why just stick to one colour? Blending colours adds some fun to your interiors. We love this Eva Armchair in Peacock blue, teamed with the Selini Three Seat Sofa in Pumpkin orange; both from My Furniture. The stylish Eva Armchair has been inspired by 1950s Americana, featuring solid ash legs with a walnut finish and luxe velvet fabric (from £189.99). While the velvet Selini Sofa takes inspiration from highly collectable mid-century American furniture (from £899.99).
It’s all in the detail
Did you know it’s possible to customize your shower to bring just a touch of colour to your bathroom? The elegant Matki-ONE Pivot shower enclosure comes in silver, black, white, brass and architectural bronze. But it doesn’t just end there. The handle (choose from chrome, copper or brass) can be complemented by a choice of ends to add an exciting pop of colour, such as red, blue, green, white or black.
Inject a splash of colour
Add a burst of colour with this Meadow Coral Roman blind by renowned designer Clarissa Hulse (from £31.15). Clarissa was inspired by the wildflowers and grasses of the Greek countryside to create this vibrant design. Printed on a gorgeous linen weave, the bright coral tones reflect the colours of the setting sun. Blinds 2Go offers a choice of linings, including light filtering, blackout and thermal, to suit your requirements.
Brighten up your exterior
It’s not just the inside of your house you can introduce colour to. Know how to make an entrance with a new front door. While you may not wish to go as extreme as bright pink, Evolution not only offers over 200 colours for its timber alternative doors, but also a colour-matching service so you can choose your exact hue.
Find your happy place
We’ve all got used to soothing grey and neutral palettes, but how about choosing your favourite colours to get your day off to a bright start? @emmafishman_stylist transformed her neutral toned bedroom by picking her happy colours and combining them to create this amazing room. Recreate the look with wallpaper from Bluebell Gray, Cavendish Caribbean Blue Roman Blind (trimmed with spring-coloured pom poms) from Blinds 2Go and pom pom throw by Bohemia Design.
