Choose nature-inspired textiles to bring a touch of spring indoors


You don’t have to wait for spring to be in full bloom to fill your home with a sense of the new season. Try decorating a wall or piece of furniture with a patchwork of floral-print paper squares, or dress your windows with nature-inspired textiles.


Bring a taste of spring to your cooking space with seasonal blooms like sweet peas, or aromatic herbs and spices. You could also try growing your own seedlings – in preparation for planting outside or just to enjoy the sight of new shoots.

Arrange a variety of real and artificial plants on a set of shelves for impact


Give yourself a green view indoors by creating a vertical garden on an unused wall. Try hanging pots from rails for a space-saving solution or place plants – real or artificial – into a set of shelves for impact.


Get your fingers in the soil and enjoy the pleasures of gardening indoors – you don’t need a large amount of space. Cacti make a great low-maintenance option, or you could begin a daily planting ritual with your own potting table of herbs, plants and flowers.

Suspend a branch from the ceiling and decorate with seasonal touches


Use your walls and ceilings to create a dramatic impression of the new season. Washi taping flowers to the wall is a beautiful and long-lasting option, while a suspended branch makes a great feature over a dining table – one that you can decorate to match the season.


Create your own version of spring with graphic stickers  – perfect for filling empty stretches of wall with life or decorating plain furniture. Free your creativity and arrange them in any pattern you like! They’re also easy to remove when you fancy a change.
