5 Spring Colors To Instantly Update Your Home

With Spring, erm springing (?) into our life in just a few days, it’s time to ditch that dreary, Winter decor and opt for light and airy Spring colors.

Luckily, giving your home’s interior a Spring clean doesn’t have to mean breaking the bank. All it takes is the right accessories in the right places.

Here’s five Spring colors to instantly update  your home and give it that little bit of new life!

Pastel Yellow Green

With Spring, comes the promise of new life. Taking this into account, pale yellow-green shades are reminiscent of freshly budding blooms, baby leafs and Spring blossoms.

Do

  • Use this color in cheeky accessory pops and larger chunks.
  • Combine with neutral, clean, tones, such as white and cream.
  • Opt for prints in this color.
  • Color block pastel yellow-green with white.

 

Don’t

  • Pair this shade with brown- hello Seventies!
  • Paint walls this shade, or go for carpets or walls in this shade. Small pops of yellowish green are sweet, but large amounts can look a little sickly.
  • Go for textured pieces in this tone. Doing so can risk looking a little dated.

Soft Blush

In the fashion world, blush is the color for Spring. Considering that many interior trends are rooted in fashion, its no surprise that blush is set to be huge for home decor too.

Both in name and in nature, blush screams Spring. New blossoms and rising temperatures come to mind when faced with this soft, warm hue.

Do

  • Mix this shade with monochrome tones, such as gray, black and white.
  • Opt for patterns.
  • Mix up your textures. Fluffy rugs and pastel pink= oh so feminine.
  • Team with rose gold; this truly is a match made in heaven.
  • Mix soft blush with other pastel tones.

Don’t

  • Use this tone on curtains or upholstery. Doing so can look a little dated.
  • Mix this tone with an abundance of hot pink. Unless you’re 10.

Coffee Brown

Turquoise

Of all the Spring colors featured, turquoise is the one that you will love all the way through Summer too! This uplifting cool tone is beautifully reminiscent of aqua oceans, balmy Summer breezes and the beautiful months to come.

This tone looks equally as great with other bright colors, or with a more neutral palette.

Do

  • Mix turquoise with hot, Summer colors, such as fuchsia, orange and coral.
  • Team solid turquoise pieces with printed turquoise pieces.
  • Go all out bohemian with an abundance of prints, textures and colors.
  • Team with white or cream.

Don’t

  • Mix with black or gray.
  • Opt for turquoise if your house has a lot of natural bricks or is decorated in an industrial style..

Off-Coral

Slightly more orange than coral, this Spring color is fantastic for an instant uplift! A combination of tropical coral and sunshine orange, this tone is made to warm the home up for Spring.

This is a wonderful accent color for homes with monochrome decor. However, it looks equally as fantastic in colorful homes.

Do

  • Go bold! This color is equally as stunning in larger chunks as it is smaller.
  • Team with contrasting colors. Go for aqua for a Summery look or team with purple or mauve for something with an air of Arabic mystery.
  • Use in monochrome rooms. This hue in a retro print will instantly update any black and white home.
  • Use with pastel tones.

Don’t

  • Go for anything with too much of a strong texture. The color alone is enough of a statement.

Pastel colors and Spring come hand in hand and duck egg blue is a wonderful choice for those who prefer muted or more neutral hues.

A stunning love-child of baby blue and gray, this hue is not just wonderful for Spring, but all year round!

Do

  • Team this hue with other pastel tones.
  • Use with white, cream and neutrals.
  • Embrace patterns and textures.

Don’t

  • Pair this hue with anything too harsh, such as bright red or fuchsia.
  • Paint entire walls in this color. Break it up by opting for a feature wall or printed wallpaper.

Laundry Room Ideas That Are So Chic

Laundry room and chic aren’t exactly known for being synonymous. As a matter of fact, our laundry rooms can often consist of dirty piles of clothes, strewn boxes of laundry powder and a whole lot of junk that we can’t seem to find a home for.

It’s time to turn this room from blah to beautiful! These gorgeous laundry room ideas will make you actually want to take your guests through the laundry room as they enter and exit the house!

Let’s make the laundry room the room we no longer want to avoid!

For The Tiny Laundry Room

If you’re laundry room is little more than a cupboard, don’t fret! Having a chic laundry room doesn’t mean it has to be the size of Texas!

The tiny, yet stylish laundry room above packs a whole lot of function into a small space without looking cluttered. This is a fantastic example of making the most of the length of the room.

When using numerous shelves and stacking white goods, keep the decor clean and minimal to ensure it doesn’t look cluttered. This white and wood combo looks neat and tidy.

If you do wish to add a little print or color, do so by hanging an ironing board on a side wall. This ensures it’s functional as well as stylish.

The Navy Bohemian

Who knew that a laundrette could look so darn nautical and boho? Rather than leaving your washer and dryer bare and boring, build a small structure to put them under. This is great for neatly storing washing powder and another goods too.

We often place the ugliest and cheapest sinks that we can find in our laundry rooms, however, this laundrette makes us really re-think our choices. A navy sink with matte gold hard wear makes doing menial chores seem just that little bit more glam.

The room is topped off perfectly with a wooden shelf, hanging plant and stunning, contrasting boho rug. Add some boho chic to your laundrette with our hand painted deluxe floral table runner.

Rustic Orange

For The Pet Lover

We love our fur babies, but litter trays and dog beds aren’t exactly gonna make our house look like The Ritz! The laundry room is often where our furry friends sleep, so what better way to make them feel at home than to build their amenities into your laundrette?

This little fella above is loving his new hideaway! Best of all, you don’t need to be a tradesman to do this yourself. Simply take the door out of one of the kitchen cabinets and add his dog bed!

This set up is fantastic for anyone who is refurbishing their kitchen and wishes to reuse their old cabinets. Simply paint them the same color as your washer and dryer and you’re ready to go.

Add color to this neutral set up with statement pots and ornaments. Then compliment this color by using a printed table cloth on your floor.

P.S. Does this dog seriously have this own private shower?

Cat parents, rejoice! We have found somewhere that litter tray will not be an eye soar! Place a double shelf in between your washer and dryer. Place the cat food on the top level and the litter tray on the bottom.

To make the cats area look glamorous, add a place mat under the feeding area. Our Saree border place mat is great for all neutral decor.

Alternatively, opt for a matching set to use under the litter tray and the feeding station, such as our placemat and table runner set.

Cute & Clean

If this isn’t the definition of a chic laundry room, we don’t know what is! The best part of this design is that it’s relatively simple to recreate.

Begin by adding a wooden shelf on top of your washer and dryer. Add cupboards and shelves and then finish by attaching a clothes rail for those freshly washed linens!

Finally, add cute touches such as shabby chic laundry baskets, faux roses and vintage jars.

Rustic Touches

Here’s one for the thrift shop lovers! Although this laundry room may not be as clean and neat as the others, it still has that stylish charm that makes us want to recreate it!

Metal shelves and hangers give it an industrial edge, whilst floral print rugs and woven basks place it into rustic territory.

To ensure your laundrette doesn’t look overly cluttered, keep it neutral and add a few statement colors and prints. Add one of our printed table runners to add a pretty, vintage edge to this room.

There’s being disturbed by your night owl room mate instantly sorted!

The Dorm Ingredients

Dreamy Boho Kitchens You Have To See To Believe

Looking to add a little boho to your home decor? Boho kitchens are a wonderful way to give your home a laid-back, gypsy edge. As a matter of fact, Pinterest is bulging with dreamy, boho kitchens that come with the unspoken promise to make cooking more stylish!

From stunning hanging herbs, to gorgeous Aztec prints, here are the boho kitchens that you really have to see to believe.

We promise they really do exist!

Greenery & Copper

Ever since Pantone named greenery and kale as some of the hottest colors for 2017, we knew that green was going to be a huge hit on the kitchen scene!

Bringing about visions of leafy salads and smoothies, green is the perfect choice for any kitchen. And when rose gold is added into the equation, the result is truly mesmerizing!

Simple, copper accessories make a wonderful contrast to deep greens. Best of all, pieces such as cooking spoons are relatively cheap. Vases, candle holders and salt and pepper shakers make wonderful additions too.

This dreamy, green kitchen adds a further green element through an abundance of live greenery. Wooden shelves keep it looking natural and bring an appetizing air of the outdoors in.

Moroccan Inspired

Raise your hand if you are well and truly bored of plain black or white splash backs? **Raises hand** Thought so! Statement splash-backs are a fantastic way to take a plain kitchen to the next level. This Moroccan-style print really gives this neutral kitchen a bohemian edge.

The wooden shelves and worktop really work with the print too. Add basil, thyme and other herbs to one side of your worktop for a decor accent that is edible!

Get The Look

Printed tiles can be expensive. Luckily, this isn’t the only way that you can inject a Moroccan edge into your home. A boho printed table runner, or boho placemats, can instantly transform a worktop. Which, in turn, transforms your kitchen!

Gypsy Dining

There’s something so raw and natural about this boho dining set-up, that it almost makes us feel like it’s outside. The rustic wooden dining table is beautifully complimented by the stripe table runner. The cacti centerpiece really makes it modern and Aztec.

However, perhaps the most distinctly stunning aspect of this dining area is the wall art. The Aztec-print wall hang and hanging succulent cleverly separate the dining area from the rest of the open plan home.

Get The Look

Invest in some gypsy-style fabrics and adorn the dining table and wall to create a boho dining area.

We wouldn’t be surprised if this house was in the wild west! Classic ‘cowboy style’ prints and rustic, metal bar stools look straight out of the saloon. Hanging plants and flowers add a distinctly feminine vibe to stop it looking too ‘Clint Eastwood’.

That hanging light fixture is actually genius. We adore the way it floats so perfectly above that breakfast bar. Where can we find a handyman to make us one?

Get The Look

Opt for a table cloth or runner with a Western-style boho print and drape over one side of your breakfast bar. If you’re not lucky enough to have a distinct bar, simply throw over your dining table.

Hanging Gardens

No matter what kind off state your kitchen is in, it can easily be uplifted with hanging leaves or faux leaves. To add to the boho vibes, hang quirky plates on your walls too. There really are no rules when it comes to boho kitchens!

Boho Accents

Sometimes less is more and this minimalist-style home certainly proves this! The clean, white fixtures and wooden floor are beautifully uplifted by this statement, boho rug. This alone transforms the room and makes it feel homely rather than clinical.

Cute pendant lights and wooden accessories add to this bohemian vibe, without making it too overcrowded.

We are all about mixing it up, so why not try using a bohemian print table runner as a rug?
