As warm breezes arrive and flowers start to blossom, refreshing your interior space can be a natural extension. It is somewhat freeing to swap out the dark woods and thick textiles of winter in favour of pieces that feel light and feature pretty, airy colours.
If you desire to hit the spring reset button, these five home accessories will bring some exciting freshness.
Urban Outfitters Rosie Shag Bolster Pillow
Spring calls for the most whispery of hues—perhaps a shade that’s not quite pink and not quite cream. To capture the colour of newly-bloomed peonies, display this textured Urban Outfitters bolster pillow on your bed or in your favourite reading nook. Made of soft cotton and showcasing some 1970s-inspired shag, the pillow has a nice bygone feel, too. There’s just something about it that screams spring, but it could also absolutely work year-round (as could any of these items, really).
CB2 Faux Magnolia Stem
We all know that houseplants are a lovely choice for the home, but if you want a hint of the outdoors without the watering commitment, the right synthetic product can look just as nice. These faux magnolias from CB2 will always be in bloom, exhibiting hand-applied flower petals and leaves that add a delicate touch of sophistication. Place the branch in a tall vase or lean it in a corner for a super casual look.
Aiayu Isolde Wool Throw
A good thick, warm blanket is literally everything in the winter, but once the temperatures begin to rise, those textiles can start to feel a little overpowering. We won’t have those hot summer days for a while still, so for a happy medium, toss a lightweight yet warming throw on your sofa. This one, made by Aiayu and featured on Goop, is made of 100% llama wool and is rendered completely from organic fibres. With its subtle woven pattern and small tassels, it carries an un-fussiness that feels right for the season.
Ikea Buskbo Armchair
The rattan pieces of yesteryear are suddenly having a comeback, and we are ok with it. These products look and feel lightweight and uncomplicated, as if they could be pulled outdoors for a garden party or a barbecue dinner at a moment’s notice. Ikea has jumped on the trend and created a rattan chair with a curved, modern silhouette; each hand-woven armchair is unique, and when it’s paired with a nearby bouquet of flowers and pastel throw pillows, it is basically a Pinterest dream.
Goop x CB2 Chelsea Cereal Bowl
Even your kitchen is permitted to experience a springtime resurgence. This season, consider switching out your basic white cereal bowl for once that feels truly luxurious, beautiful, and lively. A product of a partnership between Goop and CB2, the Chelsea Cereal Bowl has dainty, whimsical birds and butterflies. Of course, the bowl can hold a lot more than cereal; as soon as the early spring fruits and vegetables arrive, gather them up, place them in this piece, and savour (or devour) them.
It doesn’t take much to make a space feel rejuvenated—a simple change-up here or there can give added lightness and a sense of new. Because life is all about perspective.
