Spring has sprung!

It’s been a long winter and we can’t wait for spring! Floral designs have bloomed on the runways for spring/summer 2010. Why not add stylish spring-inspired floral designs to your home décor?

Invite spring in1.

Brighten up rooms with floral scatter cushions, table runners, bed linen, vases and/or floor rugs in an array of exotic citrus colours or soft pastel shades for a spring look that complements existing décor.

Replenish your window boxes and make an impact outdoors by planting white flowers in garden beds. The contrast of white against a green backdrop is striking and unlike many other shades, stands out in a large garden. A bowl of beautiful blooms in your entrance hall or living room is always an inviting and simple decorating trick.

Add floral designs to your walls for a playful update with stick-and-peel wall art. It’s a fabulous temporary option for dressing up walls, cupboards and even headboards, for a season. You could also find detailed photographs of flowers and have them printed on blocked canvases of the same size and shape. Group these canvases for a stylish display of spring-inspired artwork.

Add unexpected splashes of floral by lining the backboard of bookcases and inside of drawers with colourful floral wallpaper.


And finally, let the light in with AMERICAN shutters’ range of Privacy wooden blinds. The unique 63.5mm wide slat size creates bigger gaps between the louvres when open, allowing more light in your home. Bounce light off oversized mirrors to increase light and make rooms look bigger.

Nothing says “spring” like warm sunlight stretching between the louvres of wooden shutters or blinds and fresh flowers! With spring in your home, the odd spring rainy day won’t be able to dampen your spirits. Indoor picnic anyone?

    The bedrooms with the white shutters are so serene and pretty! I’m about to tackle a spring clean and now I’m going to do a little redecorating too. Thanks for the great tips 🙂
