Switch to light and airy

Add in some Spring prints during dinner
As we all know, weather in the UK can often be unpredictable. Sometimes Spring lunch plans in the garden don’t go to plan so bring Spring to your table inside. Add a pastel or print tablecloth to your dining table and feel the joy of Spring regardless of the weather.
Feeling fruity! Display those seasonal fruits in a beautiful bowl.
Inject some colour and freshness with a delicious fruit display. Add all of your seasonal fruit selections to a decorative bowl. This interesting Clam design brings an element of the beach into your home.
Keep it cool, switch your bedding to a light linen style in a pastel shade
As the weather gets warmer it’s important we keep our body temperature cool at night to ensure the best night’s sleep. One of linen’s great properties is that it regulates your body temperature, so it’s the ideal choice for the warmer season. Go for a pastel colour to inject a gentle dose of colour to your bedroom.
Smells like Spring! Add some scented candles with Spring scents.
Freshly mown lawns, Clean laundry, fresh citrus zing and floral notes are all scents that evoke a sense of Spring. Scent is a powerful tool for visualisation.
