Interior Spring Styling Tips

Today’s post is all about spring and how to introduce it into your home. The season is all about that feeling of freshness, crisp sunny days (hopefully) new blooms and happy colours. For this post I am partnering with Soho Home who have a fantastic selection of vintage pieces that will add real charm to your space.

If you take a look at Soho Home’s vintage furniture selection you’ll spot a great style selection. For this post I’ve opted to use this amazing folding bamboo set of shelves. Hello 70’s! I’m such a huge fan of that decade but I think they’d also suit a colonial or maximalist style home too. I’ll be showing you some of my favourite ways to introduce spring via some simple interior styling tips. Onto my inspiration board.

For this time of year you will probably want to introduce lots of light into your home. I’m so happy that spring is on it’s way and I’m craving lots of greenery, muted pastel tones and hints of nature.

How To Style Shelves

Below are a few images that I think represent that lovely fresh spring style. To nail the key points I would look around your home and gather together anything that has a soft texture - baskets, interesting glazed vases and a selection of books. I also think plants are a must, whether you opt for something dried like in my mood board, a little potted succulent, a vase of flowers or some useful herbs I think greenery is the key to that spring feel.

It's important to think about other decorative objects too, I love using large beautiful books or framed prints to add a touch of design to my shelves. You may also want to introduce a candle for added glow, even better if it smells like spring! The final touch is to include something personal, perhaps a family photo or a souvenir from a special holiday.

Remember to leave enough white space between your objects, you don’t want your shelves to feel to hectic and crowded. It’s also important to use items with varied heights to add visual interest and draw the eye in.
