Spring Homeware Design Tips with Laura Ashley

Monday, May 14, 2018
Spring is here and while autumn is my favourite season in all ways, I love adore how fresh, light and hopeful spring is! Spring homeware is currently one of my favourite things to purchase, along with books and new spring makeup. Laura Ashley have an incredible range of spring homeware as well as clothing, gifts and much more.

Light Colours: Fresh & Airy
There are a few homeware trends that I love for this time of the year but the general theme of spring homeware features light colours, fresh and airy fabrics and pastel shades, all of which I'm craving for the spring time. While I do like cosy, warm and darker shades of the autumn and winter months, I do prefer light and airy shades - all the light grey, blush pink and cream shades!

Blackout Blinds/Curtains 
Blackout blinds or thicker, heavy curtains might be counterintuitive for the spring season but stick with me! A study conducted by Oxford University found that light bedrooms (in terms of light levels) can have an affect on the quality of your sleep as well as your waistline! The lighter evenings and early spring mornings can reduce the amount of sleep we get at this time of the year and interrupt natural sleep patterns so investing in thicker curtains or blackout blinds could not only help you get more sleep but it could improve your sleep quality.
Minimal - Less Clutter & Spring Clean
One homeware trend that I am all about is minimalism! I've never been one to hold onto items, whether they're sentimental or not, as it's just not me so the minimalism trend/lifestyle is perfect for me and I also think that it fits with the season too. Spring cleaning and decluttering is something I love to do as I feel like having a clear, clean and organised space makes me think clearly and be much more productive, particularly as I currently work from home.

Candles: Relaxing & Calming Atmosphere
Lastly, candles to me and to most people are something more associated with autumn and winter but they are perfect for spring too by adding in the scent of nature, clean cotton, floral scents or fresh, citrusy scents to your home. Laura Ashley have a range of gorgeous candles, some of which are ideal for spring/summer including the scents: bergamot and lime, citrus blossom and nectarine, rhubarb and vanilla and a hedgerow scented candle!

Myself, along with a range of other wonderful bloggers, have more spring decor, homeware and bedroom design tips on the Laura Ashley blog so check it out for even more ideas!
