Ok, ok, we sound like a broken record but we are just REALLy excited that Spring has finally sprung! It is really hard to think of a better way to start a story relating to Spring… Anyway, with the arrival of Spring here in Adelaide, apart from the fact that we couldn’t be happier, we think it is time to put away all that heavy wintery gear. Including the things in your home that you won’t need as the weather really warms up. It is time to add a little brightness and lightness to your home…

Here is a list of my must haves around your home for Spring….

THROW DOWN

So the cold weather hasn’t quite left us completely (unfortunately), we will still experience a few cool nights yet. So a throw is the perfect accessory to a couch, and the perfect thing to keep you warm when you settle in to watch some trashy telly for the night (and eat lots of chocolate). These lightweight blankets from www.kateandkate.com.au are absolutely divine and, best of all, can all be thrown in the washing machine and dryer, so handy!  Available at one of my favourite stores www.oscarandwillow.net.au on King William Road.

GO GREEN

Having a bit of greenery in your home is so on trend at the moment, especially the fiddle leaf fig. It’s hard to find a magazine in the country that hasn’t got one gracing its pages.

So add an indoor plant/s to your home, it is a fun, healthy way to add a bit of texture without breaking the bank. Available at most good nurseries around Adelaide and always available at the east end flower market. www.eastendflowermarket.com.au

CUSHION ACTION

I love changing my cushions to suit the seasons, it is an easy and relatively cheap way of embracing the sunshine. These cushions from www.bonnieandneil.com.au are nailing it with their bright, summery patterns this season. Available at etienne.com.au Unley Road. Think bold, bright and super fun!

TOWELS ARE YOUR BEST PALS

I find the easiest way to freshen up my bathroom as the warmer weather rolls around, is with a change of towels. Go from the neutrals, greys and blacks of winter into the brights, colours and fun of Spring! These towels from www.aurahome.com.au are right on trend this season with their bold geometric patterns. I want them all, I love the whole look.

SPRING CLEANING

While we are embracing Spring let’s also embrace the essential spring cleaning and all that comes with it by stocking up on the most gorgeous, environmentally friendly Australian product www.bondiwash.com.au . Not only are their products amazing, they also look super stylish on any bench top, big tick from me! Always available at www.oscarandwillow.net.au and livingbydesign.net.au. Check out my other story about how you can use this fab product to get your pantry ready for that change in season here.

Have fun brightening your home just in time for the warmer weather. Happy Spring!
