Spring is upon us and to brighten up our gloomy Mondays after a weekend of divine relaxation, we share with you our weeks worth of inspiration to add a spring shimmer to our much loved homes.
Introducing pops of colour throughout your home with small accessories has become somewhat the craze, and this seasons’ trends are leaning towards a soft palette of pastels. Fitting for the crisp spring air and gust of romance, we wanted to share with you our favourite interior accessory pick-ups across London, to add a little fresh air into the design of your home.
We have to admit that we have always secretly been a fan of Kelly Hoppen, as a successful businesswoman and also well-respected interior designer; our studio credits Kelly for her enterprises. These aqua medicine bottles from her new home jewellry range would look great on a slim white display shelf in a set of three, or alternatively, one placed in a bathroom alcove. For those who have a home full of neutrals and shy away from colour, this soft aqua hue is a perfect start.
Our weekend consisted of exploring the tiny delights at Box-Park and we came across the gem ‘Decorum’. With an abundance of unusual interior accessories, we wanted to empty their shelves into our bags. This Large Serving Bowl would look fantastic holding a bright spring salad or lift a wooden console table in the hallway.
Sometimes it’s difficult to introduce pink into an interior, no matter what the shade. We have to admit, our studio has not yet managed to do so comfortably, yet we think we may have found a winner with these artistic cushions from The Loft & Us. With their dominant white front and simple strokes of blush, these cushions would look great overloading a neutral velvet love seat or delicately placed on the more formal sofa.
For the bolder and perhaps more brass, this 1958 Armchair from Oliver Bonas would make for the perfect reading corner. To tone it down, add in an overhanging brass lamp and simple wooden side table. To tone it up, sit it on top of a geometric rug (the neutral triangle tufted rug, also from Oliver Bonas, would be the perfect match) and add a complementing cushion.
Sticking with our love of cushions, this unique design from Graham and Green gives the perfect combination of colour and pattern. For the younger fun interior, the zebra blue is a little East meets West and would add that much needed design to a low sofa ‘lad pad’.
Lighting is one of the most important design elements of an interior and there is no better way to introduce coral this season than with a brass shade. Tom Dixon has always been a favourite lunch spot and excuse to visit Portobello Market in Notting Hill. Cluster them together or use one as a feature, either way they will look simply elegant.
Accessorising doesn’t necessarily mean with a product and this wallpaper from House of Hackney would brighten up anyone’s gloomy Sunday evening. For the more classical living room, or the modern office feature wall, the mysterious midnight grey is both inquisitive and uplifting.
No one said pops of colour had to be garish, or bold. Use them to reflect your personality in your home and you will find the perfect mix.
