A springy colour scheme







The April edition of the homes mags are full of nice springy things and I am particularly taken with the combination of yellow/turquoise/lilac that to me says painted easter eggs, blossom, flowers and everything else that heralds a bit of sunshine finally coming our way. Temper with some darker colours – brown, navy or dark grey – so you don’t end up with girly pastel madness. Here’s a mood board I put together, largely based on House of Fraser’s marvellous Libby bedlinen, which has done a damn fine job at out-Designers-Guild-ing Designers Guild (at about half the price, and it’s in the sale at the moment too).

Clockwise from top left: Essentials Allia fabrics, Designers Guild; Sherbet Blooms pom pom cushion, John Lewis; Shuffle table, 95% Danish; Libby bedlinen, House of Fraser; Camden ceiling light, BHS; Devon tumbler, Habitat; Socks Rolled Down tumbler, Heal’s; Grass tumbler, Mulberry Hall; Silk bolster in Fern, John Lewis
