We can now confidently say that spring is finally here. It has been a very long and cold winter and I am sure you are all as happy as me to see the end of it.

Spring to me means colourful interiors and lighter soft furnishings. Not everybody can afford or want to completely transform the interiors of their home according to the seasons, but it’s amazing what a difference a couple of little changes can make.

I thought I’d share with you some tips to add a bit of colour to your home.

There is only a few days til Mother’s Day, check my post here in case you are still looking for some last minute ideas. Mother’s Day doesn’t need to be all about presents, receiving presents is great and we all love it, but it can also be a great chance to treat your mum.

I have mentioned before my afternoon tea experiences, at the Sanderson and also at Moggerhanger HouseAfternoon tea is something I love so there is no surprise that my perfect Mother’s Day would be spent having tea and cake. Yes, I love receiving and opening gifts but I also love the idea of spending a relaxing day drinking tea or coffee and eating lots of cakes. There is something nice about sitting down at the table with friends and loved ones and having quality time together.

I really enjoy looking inside other people’s homes to see their ideas and design choices, don’t you? Here is a sneaky peak inside my friend Donna Ashworth from Ladies Pass it On‘s home. I would love to hear about your favourite pieces too.

As a lover of all things interior and a big fan of this blog I am over the moon to share with you those items within my own home that bring me constant pleasure.  Like most of us I imagine, there are many things still on my to-do list but these particular aspects of my house are what makes it a home.

The Big light

My husband bought me this A light as an anniversary gift, the symbolism of the A for my married name is dear to me, and I think this light looks great in my under-stairs nook. It casts a really cosy glow in the evenings and it means something special to us too.

2016 was the year of the Scandi style, the comeback of copper and marble and the year we brought the indoors in. If you love Instagram as much as me you have probably seen these in your feed on a daily basis. Love them or hate them, those were some of the key trends of 2016. But will they still be around this year?  With interior trends constantly changing this is something difficult to predict but I am sure some of them will still be popular in 2017.

Here are the top 5 interior styles  I think we will see a lot in 2017:

Velvet

Velvet textures and fabrics in rich jewel tones like teal, emerald green and magenta will be a great hit this year.  It’s all about the luxury, and giving an air of opulence to your home. It’s the time to be bold and out there with your decor choices.

I am very excited about this trend, I am a colour lover and I think we will see some beautiful decor pieces in the next few months.Interior Trends
