Hop into spring florals
After the dark nights of winter it is certainly time for a little spring cheer, and what better way to lift the mood than with a light and bright home update? Thanks to a wealth of designers releasing pretty patterns, floral furnishings are the height of interior fashion and provide an instant way of brightening any space.
Choosing a statement floral sofa in a bold print is the ideal way to update a living room. To keep the look modern, use the sofa as the focal point in the room. Then, pick out one of the key colours in the print and invest in a plain armchair which co-ordinates with the signature item in the room. For example, the Ashley Manor Vantage sofa is perfectly balanced by the Juliet chair in lavender. Or, conversely, use accent chairs as the statement by investing in patterned ones, such as the Ercol Evergreen high back easy chair or the Petra patterned accent chair.
To update an existing furniture suite, or dabble with the trend without diving in head first, use floral prints to accessorise plain furniture. This idea works well across the home and can be modified to suit the bedroom, living room, dining room or kitchen. A statement rug with a floral design is a great way of adding interest and colour to a neutral decor. Likewise, simple updates, such as the Petra scatter cushions, can transform the look and feel of a space in an instant. The colours chosen can then be accentuated in other accessories, such as vases or even some freshly cut flowers.
The fashion for spring florals is one of the easiest to experiment with as there is such an extensive range of styles and pieces available. The fresh tones of green, cream and yellow are certain to add a little spring happiness to any home.
