Spring Updates

Spring has finally arrived - and with it showery weather, gggggrrrrr...
Although my home is for sale, it is still my home and like many I like to update and change my home around with the changing of the seasons.

New bedding and towels in lighter materials, candles with lighter fragrances, updates to rooms happen quickly with a lick of paint :-)
With lighter mornings I hang darker curtains. 
These are from Next, lovely velvet material, lined and the drape is lovely.
The bedding chest below I bought to store all our ski equipment, rather than having it in different places all over the house.
A new small painting, which I love - more on this later, but there is nothing like artwork to add a breath of fresh air! :-)
Move things around, give things new homes, shake things up a bit!
The rug below, thrown over the pew is a Flokati Rug from John Lewis. Bought to keep our bottoms warm whilst we eat, but also for Sebastian to play on. 
These are gorgeous rugs, made from lambs wool - 
Flokati rugs are handmade of shag wool rug, traditionally made by the Vlachs peoples of the Pindus mountains. The natural colour of a flokati rug is off-white and entire rug is wool, including the backing from which the tapered shag emerges. After the rug is woven, it is placed in the cold water of a river to fluff the shag.
& of course there is nothing like flowers to make you smile on a spring day!!

How do you welcome Spring into your home?
Happy Spring!

Towels from The White Company and bedding & candle from TKMaxx
