Spring Styling Ideas for the Home

Cornish art and homeware to brighten up your space for Easter

Spring is a time of new beginnings, and as the first leaves and flowers begin to shoot, thoughts often turn to a home refresh to lift the mood and embrace the new season.

This can be as simple as bringing a cheery bunch of tulips inside or introducing an uplifting Spring colour palette of carefully chosen home accessories.

So in the spirit of Spring, we’ve gathered together our pick of Cornish art and homeware in the most gorgeous Easter hues – guaranteed to bring all the Springtime vibes!

Make a statement with paint

With its longer, brighter days, Spring is the perfect time to embrace DIY projects around the home, and there’s no easier way to change the look and feel of a space than with a lick of paint!

Cornish Milk Mineral Paint is quite simply the only paint you need to transform your home both inside and out. From walls to floors, and furniture upcycling projects to kitchen cabinets, this versatile all-in-one paint is a piece of cake to use, giving great coverage and long-lasting results. And what’s more, it’s environmentally friendly and toxin-free too.

For a year-round Spring feel, choose a stunning shade from the Cornish Milk range like Cornish Honey – a warm, golden yellow, Cornish Pottery – an authentic Cornish blue, or Thrift – a bold pink inspired by coastal wildflowers. All made from organic earth pigments and inspired by the landscape and heritage of Cornwall.

Wrap up in colour

The sun certainly shines more, but Spring weather can still be a little unpredictable! So, a cosy blanket like the Atlantic Blankets x Seakind Striped Recycled Cotton Blanket is a must for those breezy days when you need that extra bit of warmth.

Made from super soft recycled cotton, this reversible blanket looks beautiful draped over the sofa or bed, and feels wonderfully snuggly around the shoulders! Its Spring tones of pink, duck egg, orange, and navy make the prettiest colour combination too!

An Easter egg with a difference

Symbolic of Easter is the Decorative Egg Beeswax Candle from Nature’s Beeswax. This exquisite handmade candle brings joy to the home with its sunny yellow 100% natural beeswax and calming candlelight.

Free of colourings and additives, this candle is both smoke and toxin free making it healthy to have in the home. You also have pure peace of mind that you’re helping to care for the local ecology of Cornwall, as Nature’s Beeswax actively supports beekeepers who maintain hives to increase pollination.

Spring dreams

Blue skies and calm seas feel almost in reach with the Large Freestanding Wave by Claire Harris Handmade Fused Glass. Her Cornish sea scene with sailing boats sparkles and reflects light just like the sea, making an attractive statement piece on a windowsill or shelf.

With an extraordinary eye for colour and texture, Claire uses turquoise and dark aqua to contrast beautifully with the white sails of the yachts, plus crushed and powdered glass to create detail and texture. You’ll find yourself lost in this spring-like ocean scene.
