Next weekend is Easter weekend and a time when we typically think about warmer weather, getting out in the garden and maybe even a barbeque although, given the weather so far this year, snow might be more likely! The shops are full of Easter eggs and gifts featuring fluffy chicks and bunnies. The Easter weekend gives us a four day mini break and is often a time for DIY and gardening plus meeting up with friends and family.
So here are just a few ideas for introducing a touch of Easter.
There is nothing like a touch of yellow to brighten up your home. Painting a feature wall in this envigorating colour will bring a smile to your face whatever the weather. Be as bold or subtle as you feel. Carys (148) from Little Greene is bright and works well with grey. It is shown combined with Airforce Blue (260)
Another emblem of Spring are the flowers. The Makros pendant light fitting from Ikea definitely makes a statement whether in a living room, over a dining table or in a bedroom.
Homewares company Sophie Allport has a number of countryside inspired collections. The hare design features lots of hares racing over a neutral stone coloured background and includes a wide range of gift ideas and homewares. This desk buddy will control your paperwork but equally could work as a fun ornament and makes a non-calorfic alternative to an Easter Egg!
We are accustomed to dressing our table for Christmas but in recent years there has been a trend towards marking other festivals including Easter or Halloween for example. If you are having friends or family over for lunch on Easter Sunday then why not make a feature of your table. Although shown as a mantlepiece decoration, this wreath from John Lewis would make an attractive centrepiece and the chicken shaped felt table mats from Laura Ashley are a quirky alternative to more traditional table mats. The mats are part of a range of table wares including more traditional tablemats and coasters and paper napkins.
