Delight in the Colours of Spring

blog4 full

It’s time to throw open the windows and let the sunshine and spring air refresh your home.
Spring is reminiscent of beautiful colours, fresh air, flowers and sunlight.
Traditionally it is the time of year when we are inspired to roll up our sleeves and complete a thorough spring clean.
It is also a good time to refresh your living spaces to reflect the joy of the new season.

 Bring the outside in.
Australian Interior Design predictions suggest that dark green palettes will replace dark blues and navy.
This doesn’t mean you have to re-paint, you can add shades of green throughout your home with plants, furniture and accessories.
Used selectively, splashes of green introduce a sense of calm and life to a home.
If you are unsure of how to do this, I suggest speaking to your interior designer to assist you in complimenting your unique style.
Trends come and go, but your home should be unique to your needs and style.

 Nothing says spring like flowers.
Another trend predicted by Victoria Redshaw (founder of UK design blog Scarlet Opus) is the resurgence of the colour mauve, which hasn’t been in favour since the late 1990’s. If mauve isn’t a colour that compliments your home décor, you can still add beautiful spring colours with flowers. Your favourite selection of fresh cut flowers will brighten and perfume the air to welcome you as you enter your home. Potted flowering bulbs such as hyacinths are also easily moved around the house to catch the sunlight and brighten up rooms. Use earthy textured pots such as terracotta, natural stone, timber or wicker to continue the theme of bringing the
garden inside.

blog4 2Brighten up living spaces with beautiful printed fabrics.
Add a layer of spring sophistication to living rooms and bedrooms with floral prints or colours on cushions, bedspreads and accessories.
“X-ray materials, transparent fabrics, floaty silks and sheers will create a lightness and soft romantic element”. (
At Jo Mills Interior Design we have a selection of beautiful hand-printed fabrics you can choose from to compliment your home.


blog4 3Upholstered headboards have been around for many years and are making a resurgence.
They are available through furniture suppliers, but why not have one made to perfectly compliment your style?
Using a neutral fabric and adding leather or fabric covered buttons will provide a background you can compliment with bedspreads, cushions and accessories to suite any season.

Create beautiful, practical spaces with a splash of spring to add delight to your days.
