Colour vibes for spring

Store fronts, like this one at Chintz and Co. are bursting with Spring colour.

Just like most people, I love the arrival of spring. The freshness and new blossoming colour is such a beautiful visual welcome from the greyness of our winters.

Colour is a crucial part of my career, so spring is often a time when the creative juices start flowing again. I look forward, to not only nature’s unfolding of colour, but also to what the fashion industry is introducing along with fabric and furniture companies.

I was in Chintz and Company, on Store Street last week and wow, have they ever got a colourful pop of spring colour! The front window bedroom display is a delightful array of everything spring. The metal bed is a unique design of tree branches and leaves. It’s dressed with a stunning duvet cover that looks like a watercolour painting of vibrant fresh flowers. Also displayed are very realistic silk flower arrangements in bright pinks and corals, gorgeous pillows, beautiful accessories, and stylish furniture. It so worth a walk through!

Another home store that offers a lots of colourful spring ideas is Pier One Imports on Finlayson Street.  This spring season, they are displaying lots of colour, especially aqua and sea foam blue. They show it in pillows, throws, tableware and accessories. This colour range has been around for a few years, and this year it is paired with off whites and beach sand tones. It also compliments beautifully with soft corals, light pear greens, or milky yellows. Even just a few of their Sea Air pillar candles can add a just needed colour vibe.

So if you’re after bright and bold colour pops or soft and creamy splashes, you should have no problem finding great pieces to vitalize your space this spring.
