With springtime fast approaching, we’re shaking off our winter blues and looking forward to bright skies, long nights, and pretty blooms a-blossoming. Along with this glorious sense of clean slates and new beginnings comes the desire to inject a bit of colour and freshness into the home. But don’t be tempted to go overboard with loud prints and fussy paisley patterns – a few subtle and simple injections of colour can be just as effective at re-hauling your space this season. We’ve picked four stylish spring accessories to transform any room with elegant ease.
In a vibrant hue that’s perfectly on-trend for SS17, a mustard-toned pouffe adds the ideal stylish splash of colour to understated living rooms. Effortlessly complementary to both grey and monochrome interiors, its bright hue and textured wool finish are sure to become a talking point at family gatherings. Perch on it when dinner parties turn impromptu and you run out of seats come dessert-wine time.
The clue is in the name for this irresistibly cosy throw. In a sweet sugar-almond pink that’s just the right side of saccharine, this soft lambswool blanket injects a modern Mediterranean feel into bedrooms and lounges. Spread it onto the bottom of your bed to bring the fresh sun-drenched colours of spring indoors when you’re enjoying that mid-afternoon nap.
Don’t be tempted to confine this handsome blanket box to the bedroom alone – suitable for hallways, front rooms and even the children’s den, it instantly uplifts love-worn walls or tired carpets and can be used to store all manner of everyday knick-knacks. Fill it with clothes, toys, blankets or sentimental treasures, and take our advice; it’s best enjoyed in a bright and bold shade. Plush peony and popping paprika are our favourites for spring.
In a stunning turquoise shade, the Mohair Juniper Throw calls summers spent on the Riviera to mind. With its sweet seaside hue and fuzzy mohair finish, it lends irresistible charm to any room. Sling it over the back of your Iris Armchair or layer it up with a blanket in a contrasting colour-block shade for double the comfort – the perfect partner for balmy spring evenings spent snuggling on the sofa with a G&T and your favourite novel.
