    Bring sunshine into a dining room

    Brighten up a simple oak dining set by choosing a few accent colours to reflect the season – sunshine yellow, cornflower blue and lavender work together perfectly to bring these neutral basics to life. Mix and match dainty prints with large-scale patterns by staying true to the accent colours, then bring the floral motifs to life with a bunch of fresh flowers as a centrepiece.

    Smarten up a neutral study

    This light and bring study makes being inside (almost!) as much of a pleasure as enjoying the sun outdoors. A neutral base is woken up with bold meadow green and washes of sky blue – why not try painting halfway up a chair leg for a quick dip-dye effect?

    Add charm to a utility space

    This quaint utility space is bursting with spring-inspired accessories: a fern-print tea towel, pots of fresh flowers and a soothing palette of teal and white have a fresh, uplifting feel. A feather-printed voile is a great alternative to traditional florals, whilst a trio of matching planters brings a sense of order to this busy space.

    Create a feature from mismatched glassware

    For a quick fix, try arranging assorted bottles and vases along a bench or shelf, then filling them with fresh blooms. The mix-and-match nature of this display means it’s quick and easy to prepare – the rules are, there are no rules!

    Try a Scandi spin on traditional florals

    If you find pastels a little sickly, then why not try this slightly more modern approach to a spring scheme? Make a statement with a bold, fern-printed wallpaper, then build on the white base with bursts of fresh tonal green and hints of biscuit, for a Scandi-inspired space with plenty of fresh appeal.
