Refresh your home for Spring

With thoughts turning to Spring days, we’ve collaborated with British paint manufacturer, Little Greene to provide you with some interior design tips to refresh your home for the upcoming Spring months.

We spoke to their Marketing Director, Ruth Mottershead about the latest colour trends for your home.

“We are really seeing the popularity of green shades increase at the moment. Green is so evocative of Spring, it is of course the colour of nature hence why it’s a shade that people feel secure and comfortable with in their home. Our ‘Aquamarine’ Colour Scales Family, four varying strengths of the same pigment, provides a classic green (left) which is produced using umber, this creates a subtlety which brings a gentle coolness and tranquillity to a room.’

A change to your home fragrance is a really easy way to freshen up your home. Our best-selling reed diffuser just won a coveted Beauty Shortlist award for ‘Best Home Fragrance’.

 

If you prefer bolder schemes, Ruth suggests you “try a deeper green tone like ‘Mid Azure Green.’ This is a rich, luxurious green, perfect for using on both walls and woodwork for a coordinated, sumptuous scheme. It was once one of the most expensive colours to produce due to the large amounts of pigment used to create it.”

We think this room just oozes luxury and ambiance and makes you want to sit back with a good book and cup of peppermint tea. Add to the atmosphere with our aromatic lemongrass and mint candle, – also a winner of a Beauty Shortlist best candle award.

 

For an instantly soothing environment, Ruth suggests ‘A natural combination of blue and green shades (below) exudes a fresh vibrancy providing the perfect backdrop for planting greenery. Combine Green Verditer and Pale Lupin” (Below). If Summerdown did paint, we’d create a scheme just like this. Add an instant burst of Spring to your home with our room spray.
