Get set for spring
With spring on its way, a fresh and inviting bed is a must. To emphasise the move into a new season and mood, lighten textures and colours – replace heavier blankets and the darker winter shades with spring-inspired hues, such as lavender or soft greens.
When looking to create a colourful impact in a bedroom scheme, it is often the little details that work better than large statements.
The use of a few large reading pillows (Continental size) is a great way to create a sense of comfort and an invitation to linger. Pillowcases can be in the same linen as the main bed set but with contrasting coloured piping to add more interest. Another top tip is to use a coloured stole instead of a throw or blanket to add a layer in the middle of the bed (and also hide any wrinkles that appear over the week).
A few well chosen decorative cushions, whether classic pinstripe or pretty florals, will change the mood of your room instantly. Lamp shades are also great for adding further colour and detailing, while balancing your scheme by framing the bed and finishing off your spring-inspired room.
