Sophie's Tips

Spring decorating ideas for your home 2021

With hardy little daffodils hinting, that spring isn’t too far away, and the occasional afternoon warmed by the late-winter sun, it’s soon becoming the right time of year to blow out the cobwebs and embrace a bit of spring decorating in your home. We’re looking forward to seeing big blue skies and gleeful little lambs, and we’re eager to inject some freshness and vitality into our homes at the same time. So if you’re feeling the same, here are some spring decorating ideas to fuel your imagination, alongside some styling home inspiration with Sophie's Boxing Hares collection… 

Spring Decorating: Ideas for Your Home

Add lighter tones with playful prints

We love a playful print here at Sophie Allport… the huge choice of collections from chickens, hares, runner ducks, sheep and more just goes to show exactly how much! We especially love Sophie's new Boxing Hares design, which is playful yet super stylish for a spring refresh! The duck egg grey ground introduces a fresh feel mixed with country chic.

Embrace Florals

Florals for spring is nothing out of the ordinary, but this tried and tested approach to welcoming a new season into your home will leave you feeling cheerful. Try adding a simple bunch of flowers on the coffee table (minimal effort, and affordable too) - nothing says spring like florals and they pair perfectly with our Boxing Hares table linens for a spring tablescape. Check out our wide selection of faux flowers which are perfect for adding a touch of Spring to your home all year round.

Let There Be Light

With the gloom of winter behind us, spring is the perfect time to ensure your home is flooded with lots of light. Replace bulky old window dressings with lighter, fresher curtains and blinds, and consider hanging mirrors on various walls to reflect light around your home. Positioning mirrors opposite sources of natural light, such as windows, will ensure your room is as bright as can be - perfect for a pleasant mood and a light, airy ambience.

Add A Few Metallics

One or two metallic textures in a room will lend extra interest to your home. For example, how about displaying your best photographs in silver photo frames, or adding some slightly shimmery tea light holders to your mantelpiece? The occasional metallic glint gives a subtle ‘magpie’ effect, making it a spring decorating idea that’s impactful but very easy to pull off.

Switch Up Your Fabrics

Here at Sophie Allport, we have plenty of inspiration for spring themed fabrics. By changing your tea towels and oven gloves you'll give the kitchen an immediate fresh feeling of spring and even consider updating your table with a new table runner, napkins and placemats for Easter entertaining. Easy, but effective! Sophie's new Boxing Hares range can be mixed and matched with Sophie's classic hares collection for a hoppy look!

A lick of paint

Longer days and a little more sunshine mean our homes will soon be lighter, both in the morning and evening. So isn’t it a good time to freshen up the rooms you use the most often? Spring ithe perfect time to cover over any mucky fingerprints, scuffs and scrapes with a lick of paint! Introduce lighter colours into your home for a sophisticated and light space.
