Bring the Outside in!


Its the time of year to shake off the winter cobwebs and spring clean your home for the lighter days ahead. The perfect time for starting some up cycling projects, decluttering and getting ready for summer!  Swap over heavier fabrics in your home with lighter, brighter fresh light colours with accents of something stronger.

Here we share some ideas to bring the outside in and freshen up your home for spring!



If you like the Botanical trend but are looking for something a bit different then why not source some free printable Botanical illustrations and group them on a feature wall.  Choose from nests, coral, vegetables, florals in fact anything you like the look of.



Bring your favorite natural scene into your own space to enjoy all year round or go for a huge scale nature inspired piece of art.

We just can’t get enough of these beautiful plants.  Plant up some interesting glass containers, vintage tea cups or hanging lanterns to create a succulent terrarium and bring the outside in. Why not try and make a vertical garden?
