Home Notes for February

Now January’s over we can all breathe a collective sigh of relief. Sure, the weather’s still cold, but brighter days and warmer weather are on the horizon. February in the home is all about combining the comfort and warmth of winter with the promise of spring delights to come. These simple interior updates will perk up your home in no time.

Bright spring blooms

The shops are full of pretty tulips, daffodils and hyacinths. Dot them around your house to bring the scent of spring indoors. Supermarket daffodils are always great value, as are potted primulas.

Living Coral

Living Coral is Pantone’s colour of the year 2019. It’s a bold, playful shade that’s perfect for February. Although it’s bright, it’s surprisingly versatile. Mix coral with greys, blush pinks and nudes for a soft, minimal look. Or, combine it with deep greens, blues and gold for opulence and depth.

A little romance

With Valentine’s Day just round the corner, why not add a few whimsical touches to your home? These quirky pieces from Oliver Bonas are so good-looking they’ll look great all year round!

    Hello, I have just found your blog and am feeling really inspired flicking through some of your posts. I live in Cambridgeshire too and started a lifestyle blog this year which I am really enjoying it – I thought I might look around the blogging community a bit. X
